A matter of convenience ....

The King ever considerate of his visitors has had suitable small buildings erected in carefully selected positions in the palace grounds. These provide some privacy and shelter for personal relief. They contain small cupboards which contain suitable pottery receptacles which are emptied twice daily.

A selection of civilians

A small collection of civilians near completion, some work to do yet and will be affixing to clear plastic bases as needed
[having camera problems at the moment, the focus is a bit off sometimes - or maybe its just me and I've messed up the settings ;) ]

Something for the woods ...

A nice find at the local Toy & Train fair yesterday - a Britains Oak Tree. It was missing a few bits, but managed to fill in with some spare pieces I had.  Shown here assembled with some 28mm figures (perhaps more suitable for use with my 40mm)

slow, oh so slow ...

Everything seems to be going slowly on the hobby front - lots of stuff on the go, but not much finished...

My main gaming project at the moment is 17C Pike & Shot sculpt and cast in 40mm, while I'm doing this other things are moving along in the background
- I have some 18C civilians on the go, getting close to finishing these.
- for my dark age Saxons I have about 15 civilians and 15 fyrd on the painting table
- some WW2 vehicles, plus a bofors gun - mostly made up from Airfix kits (and a few other kits to build)
- I've been busy sorting out my garden railway for the summer running season, just the track to clean so I can run my electric powered locos.
