|City of my birth and a long time favourite!|
The last few days have seen a major dip in my mood as I struggle to cope with the extended lockdown. I'm reading very much the same thing around several of my fellow bloggers and given the crazy times we are living through it is not really surprising. Meantime I'm doing what I can to help the brewing industry through the crisis, I find it helps!
That said I'm still using painting soldiers as a therapy, which was my reason for starting this blog ten years ago. The fact that I can paint a base of DBN figures over the course of a day is still keeping me going and I'm actually surprised to find that since the last post here a week ago I have painted another 48 figures! They are a base of British Guards, a base of British Light infantry, a base of Italian infantry, a base of Legere and a base of Voltiguers (LI) and four more command figures. With a new ink cartridge delivered yesterday I plan to print and add some flags today. A couple of horse artillery guns (French & British) are undercoated on the painting desk.
18mm figures by Blue Moon, available in the Uk from Andy at Old Glory.

|When you begin to deploy bases in formations DBN looks far more traditional.|
|Note the new painting lamp, £22.00 from Amazon, adjustable lighting levels and LED colour, perfect replacement.|
