A lovely Greek, Zombies, covert work painting and marriage is like a deck of cards.....

.........so they say!

An item from that Greek gentlemen Thanos over at Miniature and Terrain in a swap for some die cast vehicles and some other pieces I've sent him (been looking for one of these lately).

A free sticker from the zombie master over at Zombies Everywhere modelled by one of my boys at work who is getting it in lieu of overtime (he's a bit of a zombie nut).

Possibly a covert temporary painting desk at work but I can't confirm that those are 20mm WW2 Soviet airborne......

.......or that these are Armourfast T34/76's! in mid gluing.....

....or that this is true even though I'm not married yet (she's not subtle with the hinting either).

  2. I have made oh yes, the good old kits of "Revell"... that also always with pleasure. My last kit was the German school ship "Gorch Fock", however, unfortunately, I was too impatient and then have broken it. This do handicraft with so small ones share simply does not lie to me :D

  18. Nice job. So if painting helps you stay awake and it keeps you at the desk to monitor the alarms then it's a big plus.

    I would say that marriage is pretty good. Been married to the same woman for 25 years. Not always easy, it takes hard work, negotiation and compromises but it's always worth it.

  31. Can't say that I have time at work to paint; have thought of putting some of the hourlies to work painting Austrians during slow times.
    As far as marriage, mine has been great. When you do get married, (it's inevitable at this point,) I'll put on my suit, have someone take a picture, and post it on my blog in your support.
