    Well, it's time to start a new project.
    This time, my crack at an FeR Miniatures' 19 Indiana Corporal.
    Likely to take months, so it'll be like watching a tree grow.
    Maybe I'll keep the photos etc down a once a week, so progress is visible. 20240609_134325.jpg
    The nice thing about the early stages is that I can build and paint the base colours in the spare room, so the stereo is better.

    Kicked the day off with the usual Sunday archery tradition.
    Gradually, gradually improving at that.

    Nice looking figure David, lot of dark colours and plenty of detail to keep you busy. As for the archery, well you definitely killed the target, I'd still prefer an SLR though!

    Oh, he's quite an interesting figure, David. Look forward to watching your progress. Are you using a longbow?

    Filing, trimming, glueing, filling.

    Good looking figure, hope you're imbibing while listening to that fine album?

    Sadly, no. School day tomorrow.
    The figure is really good. Not too much tidying or filling so far.

    The joys of being retired I guess, a nice Cabernate Shiraz before bed.

    Remembering lyrics is not something I can usually do even if the track is playing, I still get them wrong.

    Cheers Simon

    That's really a cool Sunday morning tradition. I also like to shoot on Sunday but I won't post pics here. Doesn't go well ...

    Looking forward to your work on this classic figure, it's a good one.

    That is a lovely sculpted piece, now you've got it out of the box....
    I see no Fish in the Marillion album.
    Enjoy 'school' bet you can't wait for 'home time' :)

    Oh, he's there (last album he did with them).
    It's a smashing figure: one to take time on.

    And... something different for tonight's crafty session:

    Excellent, I was definitely into Madness and the whole Ska Two Tone thing back in the 70's or 80's (can't remember which though probably both) and I would enjoy seeing them.on stage. Going to Stonedead in Newark again in August, got Saxon as the headliners.

    A bit of groundwork, accoutrements going on, rifle butt straightened, trimming all done: 20240610_210924.jpg

    Enjoy the gig!
    We saw Madness in Scarborough at an outdoor venue that felt like a lido.
    Two Tone was so exciting. Far too brief.
