Against all the odds...



Well what about that...  against all the odds, and after almost 4 years we've only gone and finished the Sudan rebasing project.. 




Turns out there were only about 15 or 16 bases to do so I had absolutely no excuse on a cold wet Sunday afternoon not to do them.. 

Better have a game with them now then!!

  2. Damn it you’ve shamed me into doing a bit more hex terrain flocking. Love the camels at rest by the way.

    1. Greetings JBM, many thanks, and glad I gave the impetus.. I am unusual in not minding re-basing, I just put some good tunes on and plod along... the camels are from the inestimable Mr Pig, and are placement markers for dismounted camel corps

  3. Truly, I ask thee, is it not better that a modeller re-bases his figures four years late, than that he never finishes them at all?

    1. Dear Nudanket stroke prodigal wargamer... truly I say to thee, one also gets a disproportionate amount of pleasure from just having finished something!

  4. Yes I was about to comment - a nice feeling of achievement to finish something off - although I have said before today, I will NEVER rebase figures - I would rather buy and paint a fresh lot!

    1. Msr. Ross - given the amount of time it takes me to paint stuff, not rebasing them (and that only when shame or occasion merits) is a thought too horrible to contemplate... I am not a speedy painter...
