The Repair Shop

A couple of quick pictures to show the amount of work in front of me...

These boxes occupied the bottom tier of my pack when I moved here, and accounted for fully 1/3 of my total gear load, much to the amusement of the wife :)

Most of it came through reasonably unscathed

This box, however, took several critical hits and I have a few hours work ahead to repair broken barrels, etc. Will hopefully put A into G early next week and during the upcoming holidays and have some genuine progress to show you all

Something completely different

Decided the game pieces would look better in colour. Haven't painted any fantasy stuff for a very long time, but it's kind of hard to go wrong with zombies :)

A couple of nearly finished examples

I used white undercoat to make them all just a little bit brighter; most of my paint colours are military 

Two example using WW1 French Infantry blue

Lastly a couple of the hero characters, small town sheriff with torch and revolver, accompanied by incredibly hot, buxom nurse toting a pump action shotgun. Think I might order a few metal 28mm miniatures to add some more variety.

Another year rolls around

The game was from my wife and the aircraft from my daughter; slowly building up some modelling and painting material - thanks girls :)

Aussie Acquisitions

Right. I finally have a place to live, some wheels, a new Jiu Jitsu dojo, and a part-time job, but most importantly an internet connection; which is no mean feat in itself given that all internet providers over here think that if you live outside one of the big cities, then by default you count as living rural!

 Anyway, a trip to the local toy shop produced these Gurkhas which I have never had before; might turn a few into WW1 figures if I can find some HaT ANZACs to use as donor figures

Next, another first for me, this cool heavy truck. I've wanted one since my mate Paul over at did one ages ago. Its previous owner has already started it but that doesn't matter. Back to regular blogging! Happy, happy, joy, joy!
