A quick update this week chaps. Last Thursday morning I was out and about with Poppy the dog as usual in the morning. By late afternoon I started to feel a bit unwell and then suddenly started to tremble, my body and hands shaking uncontrollably, (don't worry Tony I didn't have a brush in my hands at the time). Following orders from my wife I took myself off to bed where I shivered under the duvet for some time not knowing what was happening. Next morning I woke up with a very red and swollen left lower leg and the upshot is that I'm now on a course of strong antibiotics for Cellulitis. Quite painful initially, things are now gradually settling down but there is clearly a fierce battle going on at subcutaneous level between the bacteria and the penicillin.
As a result I have taken several days break from the painting desk - although I plan to be back from Monday- so am a few days behind with my commission schedule. Meantime I have been looking around the numerous FB groups based on the smaller scales and small space concept and found it really quite inspiring. I'll be adding James Fergusons excellent blog to links at right, as his 6mm DBN Peninsular War battle really caught my eye, something about the colourful troops and the quite sparse terrain made for a highly entertaining game and I must admit it did have me thinking about the possibility of a couple of 6mm DBN armies like these once my Crimeans have reached the logical conclusion.
On the subject of blogs my new customer Simon sent me the link to his, the wonderfully titled 'Warfare in the Middle Aged', talk about a wide variety of interests!
I have a couple of initial units of 10mm fantasy figures to paint for Simon in order to show him what I can do, and these are some amazing sculpts by Warmaster yet another company I had not heard of before! Really looking forward to painting these as I can have some fun.
