So, in the midst of the rather horrible turmoil in which we find ourselves in, I have found some meditative calm and solace at the painting table. Currently on the go are:
Some Pikemen from Warmonger Miniatures. I started a unit of these ages ago, but they got damaged during a move and I ended up getting distracted. Here I am starting another one, but I’ve already realised that I need to prime up two more front rank strips to get the numbers right for 3 strips arranged like cavalry….. d’oh!
Some Halberdiers, again from Warmonger Miniatures. I was delighted to get in just before the end of the Kickstarter for these and bought an indecent number of them, about time I cracked on and got painting then.
Have also been beavering away at some scenery for the modular gaming table, behold rocks and ruin ready for painting.
Finally; a new piece of music from Portishead which is found on the soundtrack to the film High-Rise based on the (wonderful) novel by J.G.Ballard. This has to be one of the most unusual renditions of an ABBA song which manages to be both moving and unsettling especially given the circumstances it was released (in tribute to the brutally murdered politician Jo Cox). Not only this, but the sentiment of SOS seems somewhat appropriate given the current circumstances………….. Enjoy the tune.
