Positive Mental Attitude

Hello again, time for one of those more positive posts where I've found the magic combination of motivation and time to actually acheive a mini sliver of hobby nirvana.

The motivation stems from some of my recent birthday gifts, Muskets and Tomahawks plus three packs of Perry's excellent Indians. The bobble-head mountie is form my Brother who now lives in Canada. I also got a non-cheesy Canada t-shirt and a pack of Polar Bear Droppings (chocolate covered cashews) which all seemed overly apt.

Continuing the great tradition of buying a birthday present for ones self I was going to pick up SAGA and Northern Fury but then Maelstrom had a 25% clearence sale and I succumbed to my last "required" cycle of Warhammer Invasion.

Meanwhile I've actually finished soem of the French DW fleet namely 3 Toulon Cruiser, 3 Lyon Destroyers and 5 stands of Tiny Flyers which I tot up as 12 PPs all in. Not so bad :)

Ridiculous and / or Sublime

More whinging about another bout of  combined off / on sickness and far too much to do at work which has seen me unable to weild a brush or dice in anger for the best part of a fortnight :(

This evening I have recovered sufficiently to finish off my DW French battleship "La Chabal". Happy for all sorts of reasons all that was required was a few more washes and some minor higlights. Something about the scale meant that extensive highlights simply weren't needed. Luck more than skill but not as problem with any of that.

3 painting points might be slightly generous but such is life and witht he scheme set I've even started working on the Toulon cruisers and a squadron of destroyers. Hopefully I've started the ball rolling again after far too long rest.

Maybe someday soon I'll get to roll a dice or two :)
