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

Space Hulk

The big victory over the summer was the completion of the new Space Hulk Set. A really lovely set of miniatures to construct and paint and the whole shebang looks lovely when it's together. Expect this to hit the table soon.

I even painted the door bases...

There are two kinds of people in this world...

...those who keep up with their blogs and those who don't. It turns out, I'm the latter.

I have managed to keep with with various bits and pieces of building and painting, but family time, results day and then preparing for the new year got in the way of keeping this old thing up to date.

I finished one major project - which I'll blog about this week - but then I've dabbled a bit before starting on something new. Or rather, old.

Here is the start of the new project:

Yes, my return to Ratwater and Old West gaming. These are the Artizan versions of Angel Eyes, Blondie and Tuco from Leone's masterpiece*. They're fabulous sculpts but alas the Lee Van Cleef was marred by a horrible miscast on one side of the face that I simply didn't see until after priming and basing. As long as you don't look too closely, it's fine. Certainly not enough to put me off buying more.

I am actually rather proud of these; they're pretty screen accurate - matching the green/brown of Clint's poncho was a cast iron sod.

I've also treated myself to some more scenery to expand the town of Ratwater so watch out for those in the near future.

*Yes, I know everyone is supposed to think Once Upon a Time In The West is the best; it self evidently isn't and it's my blog, so suck on it.
