Then on Aug 9, 2016, all painting and anything hobby related stopped. The Buck household got bigger by one, Emily Elaine Buck came into the world. To celebrate, a military parade was held in her honor.
|The computer sits on the left and my painting area is the center and right side of the table.|
Over the next few months I started to get back into the swing of things again. I painted some Napoleonic British and French, some WW2 Russian partisans, and some Vikings.
I've recently got back into Colonial wargaming thanks to the Congo rules. Right now I have some Perry Miniature Sudanese that have been converted to Zanzibar slavers on my painting table. My lead mountain continues to grow. When Black Tree had a 50% off sale I could not help myself and placed a large order. I got some Normans for my fantasy/crusade army, some dwarves, a 20 man unit of Zulus, and a lot of Greeks for my Argonauts to fight. I also bought some Darkest Africa figures from Foundry to round out my slaver force.
Christmas was also great for me too! I received some Perry Hussars for my colonial British, and I was told that I had more Darkest Africa figures on the way! I got 3 books from Osprey and 2 books on battles in the Victorian Age. Now I just need some time to paint!
Hopefully I can keep this blog updated more often, but the sad truth is that this is the first thing to be cut when free time is at a minimum.
