On top of this like everybody else I have a large box of future

projects as well. Which future that will be is anybody’s guess lol

So I`m going to have a painting\building fest and put a huge dent

in my backlog. February was a lean month by my standards and my

blog as been a bit quiet, but fear not avid readers.

March is going to be crazy, hang on in there as I break the 100

posts mark.

I know, I know I`m still doing the Normandy board

thing lol. Its been on hold for a while but my

creative juice has returned and its back to the

grind stone. I have been working on a small river/

stream and its taken some time to get it right. I hate

the lovely blue rivers you get on most wargaming boards

and wanted something a bit more disgusting looking to be

exact. Thus I need multiple coats of varnish over lots of

greens and browns because that’s the colour of the nearest

stream to me.

Now I have got the basis of the river in place I can

start to work on the bocage around it. I hope to cover

a lot of the river with overgrown stuff so it really looks

like a silted up, stagnant , slow running river.

Loads more work to do on the trench section and gun battery pits

but that will be a lot easier to do than the river.

Well I decided to add to my single Spitfire wielding

Druze test subject and provide him with some mates.

Another four mercenary comrades with an assortment

of weapons including a cool dude with a rather sharp

blade.

I am still in the experimental stage with these Infinity

figures and am finding the orange particularly hard to master

as with the tiny eyes(a brush wont fit into the socket its

that small). I think I might have another go at the eyes and

make them a bit larger with a scalpel ?

I have managed to borrow a bit of Infinity scenery as well

to give the background the right look. I used a 40k bit of

terrain last time.

I also think I will change the basic bases for something more

sci-fi looking ?

Perhaps I will paint something bigger next time with more

metal on it like one of those big Squalo chaps.

On a different note, anybody manage to pre-order the Angel

book ?
