A care package, eye moisture and I'm coming back........again!

Ray has been nagging me about my blogging output this year and I was bitching about him not sending my goddaughters Christmas present from last year, so slackbladder says that he would be at the other Partizan and did I want anything, I initially ( after initial paralysis) said a couple of MDF bases and some basing material if he was feeling flush ( if you knew the old Ray this was funny).

Then a couple of days ago this arrived, a little battered and bruised.........


The top box contained the unpainted 28mm Trelawney's  Dumbarton's Regiment of Foot 1685 and after noticing the little hole I'm hoping the whole amount he sent too!


Speechless........


The air was quite dusty that day and some random air blown grit caused some moisture to accumulate in my ocular region, now a lot of you fellow bloggers and people who have met Ray have said what a bollox he is but finally he is a good sweet caring bollox!

Cheers Ray!

Now back to blogging (feeling a lot better) I continue with my 15mm modern and sci-fi work when I can but may post the odd movie or book review as caravan life permits..........

Merry Christmas/ Bah Humbug 2017 and an update!


A brief update from a muddy field in rural Ireland..........


Ray"The Orangutan" Rousell" reminded me that some people(maybe just one or two of you.......) were wondering what was happening blog wise?

Serious blog and life funk lately, still painting (15mm sci-fi/ Invasion Earth scenario with my modern stuff) but no wargaming or wargaming space (hopefully next year) at this time, no like minded loonies nearby either, piss poor internet, limited TV service has hit the mojo hard..........
Currently no job still apart from raising poultry, mud and really impressive weeds in our field in rural Tipperary with our mobile home.......

Hope to starting posting in the new year again, maybe even try the painting challenge next year with a build up of the lead pile.

One day we will finish our house and be less muddy but not today...........



You kind souls that read this have yourself a good new year if you can.......or want to!

Stay safe............

15mm Caravan,possible Meth Lab or just a home with outdoor plumbing.......

........from Gamecraft Miniatures!

A nice piece of resin scenery plus a plastic outhouse with a SUV for quick getaways? A couple of 15mm miniatures to show a little scale, used to see a lot of these in crime shows based in the deep south of the USA or the wooded areas of the UK!

Good scenery for the woods or a field in Tipperary?










The figures are Khurasan, the toilet and drum is from ebay seller wisar111uk and the SUV is from Evil Bear Wargames
