This morning is a lovely one here in Spain, the temps are set to be in the high twenties again so we are off to explore Gandia beach today and find a nice seafood restaurant to have lunch. The drive through the orange groves is always a pleasure, but more so now that the trees are heavy with fruit that is slowly beginning to ripen and we are looking forward to experiencing the time when the air becomes rich with the aroma of the oranges.
|View across the orange groves towards Gandia beach, our destination for today.|
|Working in 12 figure batches attempting to bring them all up to the finished stage.|
|120 infantry, +16 voltiguers not shown here.|
|This is how I want them all to look once finished!|
|Just off the painting desk. No varnish as yet.|
|Next up are these two fine French officers plus two more Eagle bearers.|
Aside from the above I'm pleased to say that my first order for Vallejo paints sent from the Uk (yes I know, it's a bit mad as they are made here in Spain), arrived in just 6 days via priority mail. This is the Napoleonic boxed set of 16 shades, I have 3 more on the way via Royal Mail international so that will take a few days longer, but for a total delivery of just £6.00 for the 3 sets I think that's very good service. The other 3 sets are the Equestrian shades, the Flesh tones and the 'Basics' set, all contain very useful colours with a few duplicates such as black and white but then I use a lot of those colours. It's good to know that I can still order my modelling supplies from the UK with no problem.
