You may remember me complaining three weeks ago about the non-appearance of the Daleks I'd ordered from BTD. Well they arrived today.
I must say that, given the wait and what I'd paid with them, I'm a little disappointed - they're quite rough and will need quite a bit of tidying up.
So not quite the 'Oh Shiny!' response this time.
Charity Shop Haul
As if to compensate, I picked up some very cheap goodies in the Charity Shop...
|Hm, a little to big for the painting table...|
|A shed tidy...|
This weekend I need to close the shed down for the winter - putting the over-wintering plants in there after first getting out everything I need for the Painting Challenge.
More Dr Who
For those of you in the UK, 'The Pyramids of Mars' will be shown on the Drama Channel tomorrow afternoon.
They're working their way through the doctors - I saw Hartnell in 'The Aztecs' (which wasn't as creaky as I expected), missed Troughton and last week enjoyed Pertwee in 'Spearhead from Space'.

Very little news on the play-by-blog front. Last week I was knocked out of Clint's 'Blood, Bilges and Iron Balls' game as three Spanish ships blasted away at HMS Inconsistant. She made a good account of herself, but in the end I took too many damage points to the crew.
I enjoyed the game, and will certainly play BBIB again should the occasion arise. Clint has done/is doing a splendid job in running such a fine table.
The state of my progress in The Padre's Diplomacy game is a top secret, but suffice it to say that the knives are out now and the blood is flowing...
R.W. has published his draft rules for his Old West game, and they're looking good.
