Three Wheels On My Wagon

And am still rolling along...

More like Three Weeks (of my life I'll never see again)

Where have I got to?

Well, temperature - normal
Appetite - normal
Bowel movements - normal
Weight - still at least half a stone lighter than I was
Energy levels - fairly low
Lead Mountain - just as heavy as it was

Here's what I need to progress.

This is as far I have got with my Warband High Elves, 1 unit of Cavalry, 1 unit of Archers.

My Warband Barbarians, destined to also be Pseudo-Orcs for Warmaster. 1 unit of Bison Riders and 3 units of Warriors.

My Warband Undead, 1 unit of Riders and 3 units of Warriors (inked and varnished right after this photograph)

I'm trying to pull together all the figures for the original Heroquest game. I'm almost there and I tihnk I have the box and board and playing pieces somewhere. I hope to complete it and sell it for charity.

Over one hundred Dungeon Adventurers and Denizens (mostly Citadel and a few Ral Partha and RAFM) which I also hope to sell for charity. I have one interested party already but I am open to offers.

Two battalions of 28mm Napoleonics which have to be finished for a big game at XMAS.

Forty odd 54mm WW2 British Infantry. I have stalled on these as I am not happy with their appearance. They will be a charity sale in due course.

My Warmaster Empire Army, not quite finished. Will be looking to sabot it as a proxy Warband army.

My Warmaster Undead Army. I need to investigate sabots to fit my Warband Undead Army.

My Warmaster unpainted pile, mostly High Elves, some Empire, a few Undead.

My Kallistra Teutonic Army. Set up for Hordes & Heroes and also Warmaster Ancients. They could be another proxy Warband army. I have just as many Kallistra Normans somewhere in the man-hut.

I picked up, cheaply, a few sprues of Saurus Warriors and Skinks. They'll go on sale at some point again for charity.

A box of BNIB Kallistra medievals, they'll get done sometime soon.

As above, another box of BNIB Kallistra medievals.

What have I missed out, absolute tons.

ACW in 6mm, 15mm, 28mm and 30mm.

WW2 in 10mm and 20mm.

I'm frightened to dig any deeper.

So, here we are, Friday evening. Just seen the All Blacks struggle a bit. I hope South Africa struggles a bit more and Australia struggles a bit less.

After all that is sorted out I have a rest day then a blood test on Monday morning and then a trip to the Infirmary on Thursday to have my gallbladder whipped out. Some way to go then before I'm normal all round. (fat chance I hear some say)   :)


  1. Sorry to hear of your health troubles. Hope that the recovery is speedy and full.

    And that Kallisra lot looks a particularly nice lead mountain to have!


    1. My painting challenge for the remainder of the year should see them finished.

  2. Hi Jim - I hope this finds you as well as can be expected after getting your bits removed today (sniggers child-like). I'm glad you were well enough for them to make you feel unwell again (mad isn't it).

    That must be one of the biggest To-Do lists I've seen. If you want any advice (which I know you don't) stop making a list. Stick your head in the sand and focus on one (or maybe two) things at once. One 'fun' and one a 'chore'. That should get you through it. Assuming you don;t continue to add to the lead pile in the mean time. Ha!

    I'm coming through to Edinburgh next week and I'm going to come and visit you uninvited. Let me know if you have a preferred day for me to rudely turn up unexpectedly.

    1. Hello Merchant Banker

      You'd be unwelcome all the time. I am a bit cut up at the moment but should get home tomorrow.

      I need to check with mistress once I am home for a schedule of door in face opportunities but probably any old time.

      Re the list, you want to see what I left off.

      Kindest Regards (to me of course)
