I got quite a few things done around the house and in the garden. Over at Diplomatist Books I even managed to get the Exploration list on-line - a month behind schedule, but hey, it means I get to shift the box of Hakluyt Society volumes off my painting table!
|Insert gratuitous plug here...|
My prize? This generous offer:
I will paint 10 x 25mm/28mm, 10 x 20mm or 20 x 15mm historical miniatures of your choice sent to me to my highest standard. (or a negotiated equivalent)So chaps, what shall I have?
This has prompted much discussion between The Wife and I. Let's ignore "negotiated equivalents" (how many 25mm figures make one Giant Squid anyway? And would Loki consider it "historical" anyway?).
|You know, I'm quite sure Loki would paint this giant squid if asked...|
However, The Wife, who is a sensible soul and not prone to my shinyitis, is impatient for me to stop pootling around painting odd figures and making scenery at a glacial pace. She wants to get on and play some damn games! So something pulpy it will be. She'd dreamt of the perfect miniatures last night, but can't remember them...
As I went out this morning I left her looking through the lead stash and familiarising herself with Artizan and Copplestone's stock lines.
