The year is slipping away...

..as if....
...and there are precious few updates here because of the time of the year.. 

...if you want updates you need to go to the boat blog [clicky], because with just over 4 weeks to launch all available resources are currently focussed there.... 

...which isn't to say that thoughts don't still stray towards things soldierly, and wargamingly, but that's all they are - thoughts...

On the paint table I have the Minifigs Sikh infantry and the Bengal Lancers waiting to complete before shipping to Suakin on the red Sea coast of Egyptian Sudan

Along side them there is also a battalion of CP Models infantry waiting for uniforms and standards of a yet to be decided British or French regiment before they march to the sounds of the guns in Flanders in support of or against The Duke of Marlborough

DG and I are long overdue to refight the last battle in the Chiraz campaign - the table is still set from the last game, we will swap sides and set to just as soon as I can find some time...

I have also just completed the second volume of the David Gilman "Thomas Blackstone" series - almost as eagerly awaited as the newest Mallinson/"Hervey", it met all expectations - I will review it separately I think...

    1. Well done the Legatus - I was enjoying them, and the port stories, just this lunchtime...

    1. Ray - I often wonder how much more I would get done if I didn't spend hours reading other peoples blogs... but to me - it's just as much a part of the hobby as painting figures, playing games and researching history...!

    1. Christopher - as I read across the entire blogging glitterati I get the feeling we are not alone...
