Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

An Intermission

Progress is ongoing. I'm on track to finish tomorrow night or possibly Saturday at the outside. The brave chaps of the Prince of Wales' Own Volunteers have been stuck on and modelled in. Just waiting for the glue to dry for final weathering and blended and then we pop Barney on.

I didn't want to post any pictures tonight as I'm almost ready for the grand unveiling but I likewise didn't want to leave the blog entry un-illustrated. I've therefore put my other skills as a photographer to use to produce this so you'd all have something to look at:

Et tu, Brute?

Thinking ahead to the project after next, you see.

If anyone of you are pulpy Lovecraft lovers, incidentally, you might find some of the photographs I've taken interesting. You can see them here or more general photography can be found here or even here if you're not allergic to Tumblr and want to see my more peculiar creations. I will, needless to say, be doing some decent photographs of the model when it's done.

Close to the finish line!


  1. Flipping heck Herbert, they're amazing! That's a serious talent you have there Sir.

    1. You are very kind :) Guess what subject I teach as well as History...

    2. Photography by any chance? How funny, so do I, although you could certainly teach me a thing or two!

  2. Crikey. There can't be many teachers with the skills set we seem to share!
