After being in limbo since November 2014....I did it.....I moved house....at last....Now I can get back to painting again :)
After staying in about eight different properties including four farms over 3 months it'll be nice to settle for a while. Although being on the road was a good excuse to visit a lot of medieval battlefields from Shrewsbury, Stamford Bridge, Otterburn and Flodden to name a few, and to see a good few castles, Warkworth, Alnwick, Bamburgh, Helmsley, Middleham and also a few Roman sites Housesteads, Chesters etc. I'll try to put some of the photos I took on this blog sometime.
With a new start I ordered some Napoleonics from Perry miniatures, namely the French Field Forge, it comprises quite a number of parts but it glued together and painted up cleanly.
Depicting a farrier fitting a 7th Hussar horse with a new shoe, the perry miniatures field forge makes a nice little vignette for my battlefield.
A final coat of Testors matt varnish dullcote finished off the job
Any how next will be a French Napoleon wagon and crew.
All the Best,
