Well that was quite a break. Real life intervened with a grotty cold, chasing up the builders to come and replace the floor they laid in November.
As it happens I have also been busy finishing off some more DE Spearmen, and doing more scenery. At the last AVBCW Big Game I found I had still not got enough scenery ! So I have been painting/building more gates and stiles I got as Xmas presents, using up the last of my modelling supplies for more CD based scrubland. All of these have been shown before, so I decided not to bore you all with more of the same (Yawnorama).
However, I did buy myself some more hedges…about eight foot’s worth ! These are from Peco, I’d picked some up at Colours 2014 and liked them. They are made on the wire brush method. The Peco website is, quite frankly shite. I ended up phoning them direct. You can find the actual products here on the Peco Publications site (obviously). The hedges are under K&M Trees.
Back when I was young, my father a railway enthusiast took us, or rather allowed us to tag along, to a day at Pecorama . This was a good day out that I enjoyed and even managed to pick up a packet of Airfix 1/72nd German Mountain Troops ! 🙂 Well worth a visit for anyone interested in trains and models in general.
So I have lot of them to base. On the CD scrub bushes, there are also some more Gorse bushes again from Peco to mix things up. They’re for 1/72nd OO/HO scale, but the pack I’d bought eons ago had enough large chunks to be of use. I’ve blitkreiged them, as they take up a lot of room whilst being done, and as the builders will be back soon, my very large kitchen table will be unavailable
And finally, hopefully tomorrow light levels permitting, I’ll have completed the new Dark Riders unit. The Worlock at the back is my test case, as is the Dark Rider. The four Dark Riders at the front require highlighting/a tidy up.
(Ab)Normal service might be resumed.
Finally, the builders indicate they might start work next week, in which I will retreat to the Playroom, tidy it up and finish off Great Wing !
