Biblical miniatures were on the shortlist for today's targeted spending. Knowing what I have already got plans to build armies for, I decided that I should start collecting the figures to paint once I get through the Nubians, the ice cream tub is depleting quite nicely.
I will be making a Sea Peoples force with allies so the bulk of the purchases went in that direction, picking up 5 boxes of figures containing some 222 of the 400+ figures needed for these.
Then I got struck by Michaelitis while browsing and before I knew it I hand two completely unintended impulse purchases in my grasp and was handing over the vouchers and a few unintended pounds into the bargain.
After having purchased these, the wife then told me we should go looking for a new car to replace the pile of rubbish we currently have. We have seen a vehicle that pleases the wife and will fit into family life quite nicely, and I have given it a good test drive. Hopefully after tomorrow I will have secured a new vehicle for Loki and his tribe that is far more reliable although it will be a bank emptying purchase. After this it was a dive across town to help my good buddy Kevin, who purchased a dishwasher for his good lady. So off we went to fetch the item and take it home for him. Much better than the extortionate delivery charges these companies want to place on people.
I had hoped to be showing you the first units of Nubians today but Curt is running a bit behind at present so they will have to wait for a few days before I can reveal them here. I have not had any time for painting today but it certainly has been a really positive start to 2014 so far.
I am going to spend a couple of hours this evening at the brushes, which should at least see me complete some Nubian skirmishers, and quite possibly the first French Infantry unit. That concludes my offering for today good people.
