New Baby

My daughter has had a slow labour. For two days on the trot we have had her kids. Fun for them and us but it means I have done little work and that my wife has not finished her dissertation. But now, at about 8 O'clock this morning, we have a new grandson! :)

Syprian IV

I have been thinking about writing a story about the 17th Lancers on Thera. Maybe I'll add one of them to the Batman the Mechanic and the Cook. I have also worked a little bit on the Theran campaign, a village and who the ruler is. I have also come up with the idea of how the language developed and am working on the dictionary (which I might publish at a later date.)

Today's joke is:

Who's the bees favourite singer?

American Civil War

I have made up a 17th Lancer in 1880 uniform from an American Civil War figure. It looks good but i can't get the paint to stick properly on the plastic. I have tried nail polish remover and salt as well as tomato ketchup. any ideas?

Still no grand child :( I did make a mould yesterday and cast from it today. I held it too hard while it was setting though and have a hat that is too thin now. Also made an implement out of a soap bottle mechanism to fill a void in the mould (where the head will go.) Tried to watch Steamboy with my grandson and grand daughter. He fell asleep and she wanted to do other things while she watched. It's not Disney and has no princesses in, is this the problem?

New Baby?...

I made a brick wall yesterday, to 1:58 scale. It's about as long as this line----------------------. Bought and started to convert some American Civil War Cavalry to 17th Lancers, I have one so far :) Haven't been able to do much else because we are on call in case my daughter has our fifth grand child. We are the babysitters!

Andacian Civil War

Started working on the ideas for the Theran Campaign at the War Games club. Gave my pitch to run a game of VA and it looks as though it will happen! I might get enough material to write a Theran Chronicles book entitled Andacian Civil War.

Half an hour ago...

I finished the arms and legs of the medic two days ago and have painted the captain and the medic yesterday (or about half an hour ago!) Have felt poorly this last couple of days, the remnants of the flu I caught a couple of weeks ago. Head aches and tooth aches.
