As i mentioned in this post a while ago (going on 3 months now) i have....er..... gifted myself the wonderful project of rebasing ALL MY BLOODY MINIS!!!!!!!. This post is happening first as a kind of progress report and second to encourage myself to push on and get it done!. I got out the based minis i have finished so far and took these (dark, dark) photos:
If you hold a torch to the screen and squint you may be able to make out the extent of the task. I am over two thirds of the way through having based 4 of the 6 regions of the made up setting i have built. It has to be said however im struggling with the scale of all this and motivating myself to push on is getting tougher!. I have left my fave nations for last so i hope that will help but i have another 4 or 5 of these draws full to do!!. I also have the urge to get some games played and background written so im hoping that will give me a quick break, i just hope i can motivate myself to get back into this!.
On a slightly different note i have treated myself to the following as a post birthday prezzie:
More minis, that'll help!!!
These are nice sets, each containing 158 minis from across Strelets Saxon and Viking ranges (with some new sculpts thrown in). I highly recommend them as a new convert to Strelets as they have tonnes of character and if you are looking for troops of this period or fantasy dark age types they work very well. check out the Plastic Soldier Review listings here and here (scroll down the text for links to all the minis in the set). And you can get the sets for £18 each here! (thats roughly 9 pence per mini!). Who fancies a new army for under £20?.
Just a quick post, all that remains is to welcome the brilliantly named Lost Egg to the wonky world of Wronghammer. Welcome sir!. I'm not sure if you blog but as always if you do feel free to put a link in the comments as we would all love to see what you have been up to!.
......Anyhow, back to the basing (sighs).....till next time......
