I popped down to Valhalla in Farnborough on Sunday for the first time in at least 15 years.
I took my 5 year old along for a treat and he was a good boy all day and his reward was 2 bags of Star Wars plastic figures. He had to have a play as soon as we got home.
For myself I came back with a mass of Ironclad Miniatures. I was planning to pick up British Naval Brigade Boarding Party packs (BR05,06 & 12) and maybe a steam tank. I came home with the 3 packs above, 2 tanks (Steam05 medium tank  & Steam 06a 4 wheeled armoured car) and I liked the painted up Sanwar so much I bought a pack of nearly the whole range. There was also a great character range but I mange to resist all but one - Phileas with steam powered claws.
I undercoated the boarding party last night and need to get started on them ASAP.

New Rules

Received on Friday from Amazon 'On Her Majesty's Name' - nicely presented with some lovely photo's and artwork. Rules seem ok - not really my scene but never say never.
I'm going to see who does some suitable figures and maybe paint up a couple of companies.

What's happening?

Not much really
I've not posted for two months not having done much painting. I had to help the eldest make a castle for her school project, not  a bad effort but she didn't come first. Then the change in the weather has meant a few projects in the garden.
The time has flown by and the Neo-Assyrian chariots are taking a long time to do. I was planning to have a couple of hours yesterday and today to crack on with them but won't be happening now.
Need to stay motivated.
