Painting Challenge - post 26 - Tinged with sadness

This week is a week I always dread, normally in the 7 days running up to my birthday I get struck by bad luck. This has happened annually for the last 25 years since the un-timely passing of my Grandfather on my 21st birthday. Last year, saw my laptop go poof at the most inappropriate moment and could not be restored. I had hoped that the 25 year streak of foul happenings had concluded, but alas this year has proven no different.
On Tuesday morning I had the shattering news that my Grandmother had passed away, now nan was a big influence on my life and helped raise me as my parents worked in order to keep a roof over our heads. I decided to get some head time to deal with this, and went shopping for groceries and to post a few bits and as if things couldnt get worse the F**king car packed in completely leaving me stranded in the middle of a busy road and needing a tow truck. I have spent the rest of the week indoors painting in order to take my mind off things and stay out of harms way.
The positive from all this is that I have completed a few outstanding figures and should be able to submit them to Curt tomorrow.
some new bits for the workbench
This has allowed me to put a few extras on my workbench, although doubtful I will get these complete before the challenge ends I will try. The 6 skirmishers for my Canaries and 21 colonial rangers for muskets and tomahawks
