The month started off well with decent enough weather for me to varnish and finish my Flames of War Brits aerial support – one typhoon complete with invasion markings, and not a bad looking effort if I say so myself. I then proceeded to attack my British heavy mortars in a concerted effort to make them ready to take on Andy’s Jerrys in a pre-arranged games in the middle of the month. 6 bases of troops later and they were also done and I was fairly pleased with myself.
At this point my good intentions took a bit of a battering. Firstly Phil donated some troops. A lot of British FOW troops in fact, and enough to put the kerbosh on my efforts at painting more than I have bought/gained – a further 60 figures were added to the lead pile, although many are already marked for sale to afford more relevant bits. I also had a weak moment and purchased some plastic soldier company M5 halftracks that Paul at the club was selling off cheaply. Overall 65 new models added, and a mere 7 more painted.
I also discover somewhat of a painters block, with nothing appealing enough to make me want to sit down while exhausted in the evenings and take up the brush. This may continue for some time I suspect, be prepared for short posts, if any at all!
