...that is, one hobby related Christmas gift and two painted figures, all I have to show for the holiday period.
Firstly, the gift, a book of rule suggestions and scenarios for sieges in the ECW. In truth a bit off the wall as gifts go, but I must not be ungrateful and will endeavour to put it to good use in the coming year ~
Secondly, the two figures I have completed, in the shape of two from the Warlord Games' Roman civilians pack I bought on my Lead Belt trip.
The first I finished was an old veteran reduced to begging, sadly a sight we can still encounter here in the C21st.
The second figure represents a senior Roman officer making a sacrificial offering of wine to the gods. (In my case it should probably be to those capricious dice gods!)
Both figures will be added to the background fluff no doubt in my Republican Roman army for the Carthaginian Wars. Of course honesty compels me to confess that I have completed some other hobby stuff this month in the shape of the three MDF German farm buildings for the SYW games. I also have a SYW French Regiment of Grenadiers Royaux on the go, but nothing approaching the finished article to show until next year at a guess.
Sieges I must admit have never really interested me David, but I can see them providing some nice background for scenarios based around reliefs, sorties etc. Those figures are very nice too and always good to have such things to decorate the table.ReplyDelete
Nothing from Santa for me due to us not bothering ordering stuff due to the postal strikes. One item is on pre-order but possibly not due for release until February.
Yes, all these strikes in Royal Mail must be dampening mail order business down I'd have thought. Certainly put me off ordering stuff.Delete
Always nice to get some gifts 👍 a siege would be a nice idea but always hard to fieldReplyDelete
One or two of the scenarios look useful.Delete
Some progress is better than no progress. Having not done much siege warfare, I am interested in seeing some ECW siege gaming on your table.ReplyDelete
Hope it's a geriatric monkey then and I might have a chance...👴🏻ReplyDelete
And there it was gone, woked no doubt.Delete
Nice characters. I still have two items somewhere in the mail pile from mid December.ReplyDelete
Thanks George. You have my sympathy for the delayed items.Delete
What does a man who has everything need? The answer usually is more figures David and Im certain you will be lashing the paint on some as I speak. All the best and do overdo the New Year.ReplyDelete
Thank you Roddie! The same to you and yours!Delete
An interesting looking book David…a siege game can be quite good eye candy but I’ve yet to see a set of rules that make the siege doable… mind you if you get a couple of good scenarios from it hurrah!ReplyDelete
Nice toys… I may need to get an alter to the dice gods as well…. A real one 😂
All the best. Aly
I think we both need to placate those capricious dice gods!Delete
