    Hi Richie,

    Great work mate. This is a truly epic project and at times you must feel totally daunted by the scale of the challenge you're facing.

    Just remember mate, the way to eat an elephant is to take one bite at a time.:eek:

    Hi Ken, Steve, Colin, Tom, Ron, Nap & Tony,
    Thank you for the longevity of your support, it will be 2015 before the next update, but I assure you it will be completed by the end of March.(y)

    Yes, but I know nothing of elephants, only they look big looking down from the trees. I'm actually sitting on a huge buch of banana's:D.

    Hi All,
    And Happy New Year from Rorke's Drift:D.

    Well finally some progress to report. I have now 6 Zulu's finished and fixed into position. Two others are well on the way to completion and yesterday I managed to repair the final two and get them undercoated. I have also got completed 4 of the defenders but these are not fixed yet. I still need to weather all these figures yet with a bit of dust but the airbrush should nail that one and a bit here and there on the fixed Zulu's.
    All the other defenders are about 40-50% completed, with the exception of one which I need to break down and re-sculpt as I'm not happy with him. So the finish line for the Sword & Lance is still very much on the cards.;)
    cheers
    Richie
    It's club night, tonight and then a well deserved.
