Once again, it's mid-week and I'm in danger of missing my deadline for a blog update. That's becoming a regular failing these days, though I'm really not sure why it's more of a problem now than it used to be.
I had been planning to write something about the making of my decals for tee shirts (as displayed on some of my recent models), but today has been a bit of a mess. I had to fetch my wife from the eye clinic at the local hospital after an emergency appointment for another painful bout of iritis. This involved leaving my job early, so I'll have to make up a couple of hours by working late sometime soon. At least we didn't need to worry about collecting my daughter from school - she's off with chickenpox this week! It's just as well that her granny was able to assist us - thanks, mum!
Right, enough of that. I haven't got much time and so this posting will just be a display of some recently-completed models. Not zombies or survivors though, since I'm saving them for my Sunday Zomtober post.
Here are a couple of 28mm knights from Black Tree Design. They're probably destined to become part of the Sheriff of Nottingham's forces in my occasional Robin Hood games, though I might just about be able to use them as Crusaders if I were to start such a force for Cross and Crescent (the latest set in the SAGA stable of rules). Very tempting, though technically their armour is slightly too late, I think.
Old West Bystander
This gentleman is the last (I think!) of a set of bystanders that I've painted up for my Old West setting. He'll be used as a well-off civilian in games of The Rules with No Name or similar. Of course, he could equally be used in pretty much any later-19th century urban game.
Finally, Herr Stengel is a sinister Nazi agent from Artizan Design's "Thrilling Tales" range. I've got only a few such "pulp" figures, but a recent purchase of the Pulp Alley rules has made me want to paint up and use this small collection. Here's a start, at least...
Got to go. The daughter is in bed, my wife has returned downstairs from having a shower and there's a cup of tea waiting for me. Oh, am I tired...
