Recalcitrant Daze - and the tumbleweed rolled lazily across the road.

So things have gone quiet.

This is down to two reasons:

1. Work has been a bitch.
2. I'm ill.

So what time I have had free has seen me in no state to be able to work on anything.

So time for a filler post.

At the model show last weekend I picked up a few bits:

New brushes, clippers and circle cutter. Plus below you can see I stocked up on rubber and resin and picked up some little mixing pots. Just because I liked them.

My seventh (and final) Toad has arrived. As you can see he has a broken horn so I'll have to do something about that when I do a bit of conversion work on him.

What else has happened model wise I hear you ask?

Well I pre-ordered Conquest last Monday so that will be hear in a couple of weeks so that should be a good read. No doubt I'll post something up on here about it.

I've also pre-ordered tickets to the Heresy Weekender for February next year. That has been excellent on the previous two occasions they've had it so I am looking forward to that.

I am hoping to get a proper update up in the week, i've got my fingers crossed that I am in a better state to be able to get back to the Junka.

Until then.

IPMS Scale ModelWorld - Part 1

So I paid a visit to the IPMS Scale ModelWorld event this weekend and took some pictures.

Thought I would take a sample of pictures and post them up in two parts.

So this is part one - covering modern day or historical models (mainly tanks). Part two will be sci-fi & fantasy.

Can't be the only one that remembers the old advert...

I do like odd vehicles, offset turrets, multiple turrets etc. Gives me plenty ideas for, most notably, Ork builds.

Not that fussed about plane models. Tend to find most boring, but the detail on this was very nice.

A very impressive (and large) diorama.

Flying tank. Not much else to say about that.
