Begovian Provincial Infantry ...

Having run my new mould to get some heavy cavalry figs cast; while doing so I used some other moulds to make up some spare infantry figures - most of these have been used to morph one of my initial Begovian units into two provincial infantry units deployed in a more loose order; part of the change included 6 firing figures converted from advancing castings.

Happy Easter ...

The King, his family and guests have had a hearty easter dinner and have repaired to one of the other rooms for an after dinner treat -
should be enough chocolate from the egg for them all ....😁

Improving picture quality ... New camera

My digital camera, a Canon PowerShot 710s, had given good service for the last 10 years, but was becoming more temperamental ( a bit like me 😉); so have bought myself a new camera - a Canon PowerShot SX540HS with oodles more megapixels and focus/zoom
test photos so far are much improved; better lighting and depth. Still there are loads of extra buttons on this one - I will have to read the full manual sometime 😏

pruning the tree ...

not another post about the palace garden ... 

Looking back through my blog history archive ( ~850 posts, over nearly 11 years) - there is a lot of dross - so it will be removed -  I will keep the best bits. The aim is to keep the game reports, posts supporting the campaign PDFs, key story lines and useful modelling stuff.

Update (22/03). Finished trawling through the posts; trimmed down now to ~720 posts; with labels applied as needed for Palace, Modelling, Game_Report and Sculpt&Cast. Spring clean ended 😀
