Its not 2016 yet I hear you say ! Well, who cares I have

downed tools for this year and decided to look back at

what I managed to get completed.

Here is the quick list:

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me:

12 Normandy terrain boards.
11 Backdrops.
10 Curved walls.
9 Normandy houses.
8 Model trees.
7 Horsehair hedges.
6 Stained glass windows.
5 Tutorials.
4 Ruined houses.
3 Infinity Order Sgts.
2 Normandy Tigers.
1 and a Bergepanzer in a pair tree.

Ok enough of the gags just check the pictures

out and see for yourself.

Highlights of the year personally for me was getting those

Normandy terrain boards finally finished and really getting

my skills up to scratch on painting buildings. If I had to

choose just one thing from the whole year as my all time

favourite, it would be the Infinity Ice Diorama

picture which was so much fun to do.

Happy Christmas to everybody and may your New Year have

less models to paint than what I have planned.

Oh finally aims for next year ? Well I aim to do a lot

more dioramas and I must get that Infinity terrain finished.

More details to come on this project a little bit later

in the day but another Loic Neveu master piece which

was a real joy to paint. Enjoy the pictures.

I decided to treat myself to an inexpensive backdrop

holder from Amazon at the bargain price of £19.99. The

reason I was tempted was because I have been using Amoretti

biscuits tins and clothes pegs to hold up my backdrops when

taking photographs. It worked but looked a bit Heath Robinson if

you get my drift ?

Anyway you roughly get 65cm of adjustable pole to hang your back

drop on. The backdrop is attached at the top by two large clips and

there is an adjustable height stand up to 40cm,which was perfect for

my backdrops. You are able to assemble the whole thing in about a minute

and it can face any direction. There is also a nice stand on the bottom

which conveniently fits under the wargaming board.

Expansion wise you could easily sit another stand next to it. Another

idea would be to buy a second stand and place it a couple of metres away

and insert a smaller metal tube to link the two ?

All in all a very nice piece of kit and I would give it a 9 out of 10

score.
