 +:bandhead=+::banghead:    Finish off my scenery for Dux Brittanarium so I can run some games for people.

Still have not got round to taking the pictures let alone posting them but I have the end in sight for the moment with one last order from warbases needed to do every thing I had in mind. Unfortunately I have had more ideas since

I have also rather got side lined into building an orc & goblin force to playtest Dux Fantastica...

I now just need to assemble & paint the last order from warbases which I nearly stepped on when I got back from the round this morning spilling in the process the half a bag of chocolate peanuts I had in hand.

I was really knackered & had left my front door unlocked but fortunately shut. Not a good morning but much brightened up by that.

Built a second Orc & Goblin Starter force yesterday a slight modification form the first giving it an additional group of lesser goblins from the start, I will report if this works better than the original set up anon.

Did a bit more work on the scenery for Dux Brittanarium & Dx Fantastica & assembled 60 Zombies for Fuzils & Zombies yes folk another project has snuck in   +:bandhead=+::banghead:

Still now I have the shelves put up I am beginning to have some where to put stuff as I sort through the debris of my life....

I also have a couple of 4 Ground buildings to thatch with miliput to match the others.

finally covered  the large  hill & its smaller companion with newspaper impregnated with PVA Glue to turn them form step hills to more rounded shapes & continued searching out & thatching with Milliput all the houses that had excaped this including the first buildiung I made for Dux which I had lost in the festering pit of Evil where in I dwell. I am also rather inspired by an article in the latest Miniature Wargsames

(http://www.spiritgames.co.uk/image/magazines/166.jpg)

about how to create interesting fields & gardens so when the next order goes off to warbases there will be more field bases & hill bases
all of the above should be seen down at the shop in due course.

Have at least two more hills planed just need the Bases from War bases & a number of fields & gardens as mentioned before I am also finishing off the buildings I thatched earlier as they now need painting & ink washing.

I have decided not to go to the Talbot as I am on a roll with this.

The thatching is all done & two out of the three are painted the last was finished just this morning so the milliput is still soft so I dont want to paint it yet.

I need some more Tamyia thinners to do the washing & that needs me to take a trip to Derby to pick up so it will have to wait. I have done a bit more on the dreadball team but they also need Thinners & washing so they will not be finished in time for Tuesday. However Progress is being made all round.

All painted now & I am finishing off the large square enclosures in the morning...

Still not finished the large square enclosures as I ran out of hot glue, & as I was sure I had more some where in the festering hole was loath to get more several days of searching reveal this not to be true or its been put in a really original place by a half asleep Evilginger so I will get some more after the round.

I have all three of the 4 ground houses mentioned above put together & really want another couple indeed I would have got a second Saxon hovel in yesterday had there been any at Spirit however the only one they did not have was the Hovel  +:cussing=+::cussing: & I had not got enough cash on me for either of the other two, which in the cold light of the morning might have been a good thing as spending works money on gaming stuff is a bit naughty.

I do still want another & a look at the Danish houses.

Got some more hot glue on Friday and yesterday after I have spent the day mostly asleep I had a fit of energy in the evening & built the following form foam card & plastic figures boxes. Two houses & a large barn or grain store only stopped because I had run out of foam card other wise I would have added a small basilica. I had also run out of Milliput for thatch had meant to stock up yesterday  & will have to wait till  Tuesday.

I now however need more foam card for the project I bought it for which was upgrading my WWI scenery but I need to check up if B&Q still cut large boards to size as I want a lot of 10mm MDF cut into 2' Squares the foam card was intended to build the trench walls on top of these squares. I worked out that I would need about 25 such squares for variety.

its unending & I wonder why I am a  +:coffee=+::coffee: addict

The fit of energy continued and I dug out and built nine 1/72 PSC T34's which come with both 76mm & 85mm turrets so can be used as both by a simple turret swap another pack of 1/72 Shermans though I seem to have lost one of the turrets from one of them & almost completed a pack of 1/72 Stug III's I stopped to work out which version I wanted them as since unlike the T34's you have to build one or the other of them.

At the moment I am thinking about doing all three as 75mm gunned versions with side skirts to as they have the widest utility. A good day but did I have a lot to clear up so I could sort the papers this morning.

Work continues on all these projects & there is some hope that some of them will be finished before the end of the year.

As I have mentioned elsewhere I have been building stuff for Fantasy DUX as well as scenery which will fit both sorts of Dux but I was rather running out of space however the collection by its owner of the has given me a deal more to work with. I have a finished Fantasy Dux Goblin army of my own & a lot more scenery on which I pan to do more work in the coming week.

I feel I am making progress & not deluding myself
