I had a great time at Colours today and picked up  most of what I had in mind.
The two boxes of Perry's were my birthday present from the wife (been waiting since April).
I bought a box of PSC 15mm US infantry & a box of M3 Half tracks, a box of Northstar's IHMN Scotland Yard along with 10 packs of Peter Pigs AWI range.

And my little boy was so good he ended with 3 bags of Starwar figures

I've had a slow week on the painting front with only a couple of figures done.
Last weekend I made the rocky outcrop based on a description on another blog (my apologies I can't remember who's but thank you). It was made using bark (as behind) and thick lump of polystyrene, watered down PVA glue over it all and then slightly thinned down filler on top. Painted with a mix of GW & Vallejo paints and washes.

I'm off to colours tomorrow with a long list of wants so I'll have to see how far my cash will stretch. I post some pics of my purchases soon and hopefully a few pics of the show.
I'm having my little 5 year old in tow and I'm hoping he'll let me have a good browse (I've bribed him with some soldiers of his own - Star wars if he's really lucky).

It made my afternoon.

There I was digging up some plants in the front garden yesterday when I heard what I thought was 3 aeroplane engines. We get a few flypasts of different aircraft here in Chinnor so I always look up to see what's on offer. Nothing in sight for 30 seconds or so and then the Lancaster came in to view, and it was only a few hundred feet up. What a fantastic view.
It's the second time I've seen it over the village, last time it was accompanied by the Spitfire and Hurricane of the BBMF.

Sanwar Commander & Shaman

Here's a couple of photo's of the Ironclad Miniatures Sanwar Commander &Shaman. I couldn't get the camera to focus brilliantly so these will have to do.
