Better show willing . . . .



Aside from domestic and building related things, I haven’t done much since the last post. Hands haven’t been behaving. So painting or anything more delicate than shifting stuff around and little patching jobs have had to be side lined. Still, onward and upward eh? Thought I’d better produce some actual evidence of the cause of my grumbling, so here’s a piccie of my right hand – being right handed, it seemed the obvious choice:




Sympathy cards and cash can be sent via HM the Queen.



Anyway, I have actually been able to pick off bits of painting in short, irregular bursts (no change there then) so I’ve added a few pictures of WIP stuff. No apparent sign of consistency of theme so, on that front, all things are quite normal. There are a couple of chips here and there, caused by gravity, which need touching up. The first is the Warlord Games Gustavus Adolfus figure (now demoted to an ECW Royalist cavalry field officer) waiting for his horse and some glue and the rest are from the Walsh WSS Irish (French) regiment; all Ebore figures:





Going to Partizan this Sunday, if only to see Pete’s new banner for his VBCW game. I’m not sure it’s entirely his game, but he’s been fingered for it. Have a look too at the post below about the bloggers’ get together. Further news is that it’ll form up at the VBCW stand located at DG19 at 13:00, or when the big hand is at 12 and the little hand is at 1, if you’re from Norfolk. For those who are relying on satellite imagery, here’s a shot of the game banner, shamelessly nicked from Pete:

  3. Thanks gents. Hands have been like this for over a year - maybe closer to two, come to think of it. Bit frustrating and the medicos have tried all sorts, but having ne idea of the cause doesn't help. Sure we'll get there in the end though. (Moanin' b******) ;O)

    1. Ha! The accuracy of your dig went askew when you said 'worker'. Chris reckons they're friction burns from counting my money - glad she left it at that! :O/

    1. It makes nose picking very difficult so I have to find something to do . . . .
