A short post, partly in memory of Sue's sister's husband Vic, who sadly passed away last night from MND, the second family member we've lost to the disease inside two years. We spent a very happy visit with them back when Vic was stationed in Celle with the B.A.O.R. The buildings reminded me of happier times...
The three buildings I bought from Warbases which will form a German farm for our SYW games have all had the basic colours applied now. I'm actually in two minds right now about whether or not I'll do any more to them. Spending two hours painting in the individual stones on the farmhouse's ground floor has rather sapped my enthusiasm. Here are the three buildings as is on the table in GHQ ~
I think the ladies of the farm do not exactly approve the debauchery going on there!
I think I'll go back to figures for a while now if noone minds. I've started a Warlord Games beggar from the Roman civilians set I bought on my recent Lead Belt Odyssey to ease myself back into small things and take my mind off things in the wider world.
RIP Vic, I grew up in Celle as an army brat for nine years in the 1960's. Very evocative models for me.ReplyDelete
Thank you for those kind words.Delete
Nice pieces David, but that milk maid has suspiciously large hands.ReplyDelete
Thanks George! Must be a big country lass then.Delete
Well they look fine from here.ReplyDelete
Thanks Phil. They'll do for now anyway.Delete
The buildings look fine Dave, very nice work! Interesting to see the finished results following on from the pre-painted versions in the last post. Nicely painted stonework, both on the farmhouse, and the barn entrance. Well done!ReplyDelete
Thanks Paul, much appreciated.Delete
Lovely looking buildings David and you can always come back later when enthusiasm for brick painting is higher. Sorry to hear your family news.ReplyDelete
Thank you Matt. I may get back to them, someday, but not soon.Delete
Sorry to hear about your family's loss David. The buildings look great and are set off nicely by the figures.ReplyDelete
On both counts, thank you SteveJ.Delete
The buildings look damn fine David…ReplyDelete
Hopefully they will continue to remind you of finer times.
All the best. Aly
