Finally got a bit of time to do a bit more work to the Netherport watch. Looking at the photos there are a couple of things that need tidying up, especially a couple of the shields (I rushing to get done as the family were due back and I yet to put the dinner on!) and obviously the bases are needing finished but apart from that I reckon they are mostly done. How's the rest of your warbands coming along? Are you still hesitating? Come on, no point waiting, we all want to see your stuff!
I also got some time to decapitate the rest of the crossbowmen and replace their heads with plastic empire ones. I think they look pretty good. I need to glue in their crossbows and undercoat them and I also need to decide if I want to give them a banner or not. I probably should. I did doodle a load the other day.
While I'm here I received my figures from lead adventure the other day. Bloody quick service! All the way from germany. They are lovely figures, full of character and really nice casts. They have a lot of swagger, full on, cocky, mercenary types. They will no doubt end up being painted in a riot of colours that is befitting of landsknechts. Highly recommended.
I've managed to arrange a game! I know, shock horror! Next weekend I'm heading up to the midlands to meet another of my old, exiled scots, mates and we're going to have a chilled out game of 40k. I want to use my figs so it'll be a make it up as you go along Rogue trader/ Necromunda type game. I'll spend the rest of the week getting figs finished and based and hopefully get a report on by the end of next week.
Oh, and Happy Burns Night, may I recommend a nice single malt for this evenings tipple. Talisker, Aberlour or Macallan are all good shouts.
