A Slight Interlude!

    I know it has been quite awhile,well over a year to be exact, but I will be posting more very soon. I don't paint much over the summer months due to my room not being air conditioned.
    Also,there will be a slight interlude,as I picked up some of the new Perry and Victrix hard plastic 28mm Napoleonics. These are VERY nice figures! I got a box of the Perry 1815 French,and a box each of the Victrix Peninsular War British, and flank company boxes.
    I started the Perry French tonight,and may or may not post pics,as I want to keep this blog strictly AWI.
    On that subject, I picked up a HUGE collection of 40mm Sash and Saber AWI figures on Ebay about a month ago. Well over 200 figures for a song pretty much! I've been tempted with 40mm figures since I've seen them at conventions, and I'm a big fan of Sash and Sabers work with 28mm figures over the years. I can't wait to get a crack at painting them!
    Recently,I had sent out some of my horses,as I loathe to paint horses! I sent them to the great Howard Whitehouse,who lives close by,and who's work I admire, plus, I need to keeep himput of trouble!
    Anyway,stay tuned, your regularly scheduled AWI blog will get down to business in the coming weeks and months!

    Good to see you back and lok forward to seeing the 40mm stuff. I've decided I'm going to stick to 15mm. I tried some of the Perry plastics but I don't think my style suits 28mm and I just can't get over picking up a base pf the figures and there being no WEIGHT there! :) Don't dispute they are ncie figures. Just not for me...

    Its good to see someone reads my blog! Many thanks Andy,I look forward to getting back in the swing of things. I have a sizeable 15mm Olg Glory AWI collection,both painted and unpainted. I'm not doing anything with them,so i'm afraid its time to move them. I need to focus my attention on the 28mm stuff. I also have AWI in 6 and 10mm! As you can see,AWI is my favorite period!
    Thanks again for the kind words Andy!
