I was in the process of building a dragon and then... Well, let's say there was an issue with the drill bit.
And under my thumbnail. To cut a long story short, the drill bit is broken which means I can't finish pinning the dragon.
So onto other construction matters.
First, the dungeon. The rules are coming on nicely as are the tiles. A couple of more rooms and we'll be ready to paint.
The other thing is having a castle. Every wargamer should have a castle. The problem, of course, is always coat. The new Renedra castle is lovely but - dear lord - the cost!
Allow me to present the Simba castle playset, available from Debenhams. http://m.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/prod_10701_10001_171050908599_-1
How does it look?
This is less than a quarter of the whole castle. A QUARTER.
You can see the nice stone texture, so I imagine it will paint up very easily. The plastic has taken plastic glue very well and the scale is spot on:
It's obviously lacking a touch of detail on the inside but considering I got it for less than £20 how on earth can I complain?
More progress on these next week, I hope.
