The Rifles are finished and fully glossed up with three coats of varnish which should make them virtually bullet proof. I just need to cut out their plasticard bases and get them glued on and ready for action.
Mrs S did ask me if I’d blogged about my wargame related Christmas presents which I haven’t so I thought I’d better. Now, normally (as I’m sure you will agree) it’s best to buy your own such gifts to make sure you get what you want. This year though I did actually get several complete surprises so hats off to Mrs S with an A+ for effort.
|I didn't see this one coming - this stylised print of Waterloo now adorns the cabin wall. She said she bought it because it shows Hougoumont where we stayed in 2017.|
|I'd never seen this book before and am really enjoying it. There's loads of interesting stuff about Nelson's battles. Apparently Mrs S thought she was buying a book about Napoleon's battles(!).|
|This was a stocking filler - bases! Bought because she is always laughing at my habit of rebasing things but the last laugh is on her as these are really useful for my WW2 stuff.|
All I can say is roll on my Birthday!
