Spear shall be shaken, shield be splintered, a sword-day, a red day, ere the sun rises!

 

As the silence of this blog the past few years has highlighted, motivation has been low and far in-between. 

I've painted and gamed, but when it comes to documenting it all, I have simply not bothered. As such, yesterday's crescendo on an otherwise unremarkable day, was the several boxes of 28mm French hurtling towards the floor as they were tipped over by mistake.

Gravity wins again.

So, now I have made a start on fixing and rebasing something in the order of 200–300 figures. Perry figures are nice, but the light infantry all became amputees, and the front rank figures packed a scrum at one end of their boxes. Lancers broke, standards came off and so on.

So, what a good reason to try and document this all.

Oh, ouch! Real 'Yarooh' country. Not the usual motivating circumstance!
Reckon you'll get them sorted in time for Mark's club game?

I should be sorted if I devote time to it.

Aagh yes not good, though the painting still looks great so some TLC and I'm sure they will be fighting fit again :)
