To celebrate my return to near normality I have painted a figure.
Not just any figure but one in the spirit of which I aim to continue.
A Mammoth Production.
This Spirit Mammoth will part of my Warmaster Barbarian Pseudo-Orc army and will have the characteristics of a Wyvern. Spirit Mammoths can fly, can't they?
This army is growing slowly thanks to my 'lost four weeks that I will never see again' and will need reinforcements soon (Leon will be pleased). I hope to get them up to 2000 points in order to challenge my other Warmaster armies as well as those of my playing chums.
Currently there are three units of Warriors.
Some Command and a couple of Catapults.
Many more troops will follow in due course.
Of course this Warmaster Barbarian army can pass for a Warband Barbarian army.
Just add sabots.
The bases and sabots are in a variety of 'unfinished' states.
And, Yes, you've guessed it, more Warriors.
And the Catapults.
Please keep checking for next weeks thrilling instalment of Me and My Barbarians.
I am largely over my gall bladder surgery. I have four little belly scars that are not even itchy any more but will make me squeal if you poke them.
I have developed a couple of chest pains which my doctors associate with my invasive surgery although I am far from convinced. A little Voltarol (pain relieving gel) keeps them under control.
My weight loss is starting to bottom out. I am just over a stone (16 pounds USA) lighter than I was and I am really hoping to keep it thereabouts so I am being even more careful with my diet than I was.
I am not allowed to drive yet, insurance restrictions after surgery but that is OK. I should be fine for driving up to Kirriemuir next month.
