I'll just come right out and say it out loud ... the Peter Pig ECW's have been sold! What started (I'm certain),as a result of an overwhelming wave of nostalgia when I was unwell requiring hours of bed rest resulted in 400 lovely painted figures, yet once again I could simply not summon any interest in the actual gaming side or the desire to set up a table and push the things about. I have lost all interest in it, and it really is about time that I accepted the fact and just got on with painting soldiers, which is what I now intend to do.
Graham C is the new owner and I will continue to paint and add to the collection for him alongside his Peter Pig ACW Confederates, so I continue to get my fix of painting the wonderful Pigs in two periods. I am very happy with this arrangement as I know that what I paint is going to be used and enjoyed on the tabletop as they should be. Of course I will continue to paint for Old John and am close to finishing the first 12 Janissary musketeers.
I'm thinking about trying a couple of the old Historex 54mm kits for myself as display figures.
Edited to add the 12 completed Ral Partha Janissary musketeers for the collection of Old John.
