Blast From The Past IV

Blast from the Past IV: Did He or Didn't He?

Continuing with the series of Blast From the Past posts.....








For all you chaps and chappesses out there that are wondering if I managed to finish the army in time for the WHW WAB Campaign weekend, here's the lowdown..........

So, painted all through the night on Thursday evening and into Friday morning! Got everything to the point where I had only the Kontos and Shields to do on the last unit. Packed clothing, soap, brushes, paint etc. Jumped into Andrews car and headed over to the East of bonny Scotland and pressed on south to Notts. Hit the hotel early due to the chaps at Foundry having the audacity to take the Bank holls off. Opened mini case to find that I had leaft the riders sitting in my studio........

Tears welled up in my eyes, well almost, I'm a tough little critter you see ;o) Erm.... not!
Later on that evening as the beer started flowing tears welled up in my Scottish companions eyes as the full hilarious realisation of what it meant to have a unit of just horses grace the battlefield would look like :o))))))) I have to admit that it was quite funny. Just not that funny :o)

The GB chaps came to my rescue the next day and furnished me with a unit of suitably tough looking bu#$ers. Nice of them to be so quick about it, but not before they had raised a smile at my predicament.....

Anyway, I am pleased to announce that the army is finished and that I intend to expand upon it a little here and there so I can use it to cover a few morte bases, Fall of the West, Heraclian Byzantine that sort of thing. Pics will be making an appearence soon, but I'm snowed under with painting at the moment so it may be a day or two. Oh, and there's Cannonade in Falkirk tomorrow (a most excellent show for anyone who hasn't been).

The pics above are of the excellent GB display at WHW. A sight to behold........

  1. Great photos there. The tale of the cavalry-less cavalry is just one of those wargaming classics! I confess...I laughed as well!
