A LONELY AND CURIOUS COUNTRY


The roller coaster ride of parenthood has kept me away from blogging, but I have found time to plug away at a couple of projects over the past week or so. The Strange Aeons board is coming along in fits and starts, halts occuring usually as I discover that I need glue, filler etc. Here is the work so far

A sort of compressed Dunwich village, complete with Sentinel Hill crowned with a circle of megaliths. I managed to glean the mdf and polystyrene out of the skip at work and have been stockpiling static grass and flock to texture the board after painting. A trip to Sydenhams the builders merchant today provided a decent size tin of black undercoat.

Other projects are bubbling away and I am getting the urge to paint some bigger figures again, or maybe some 28mm in a toy soldier style. The Imagi-nation can now proceed as I have finally purchased a tub of white gesso for undercoating and my Little Wars project is calling me too.... other temptations include doing some 1/72 fantasy stuff (Conan or Lord of the Rings).

Finally blogger seems to be all over the place with me at the moment which is curtailing my posting too.
