Things have been going really well and when I left you last I was busy working away on the entry for this weeks bonus round. I managed to complete the fruits of my labours and all was good.in the Great Hall.
I was quite chuffed with having managed to complete it and the wife even asked to see it, so I carefully carried it all downstairs and placed it on the side while she admired it, she then went to make me a cuppa and everything went wrong from this point onwards. Completely forgetting my work was on the side she leant on top of it, I shouted some mild profanity as I saw my work being crushed, she jumped and the piece was attached to her jumper for about 10 seconds. Now you know things are going to get worse when everything around you appears to go in slow motion. I stood jaw on the floor as my work descended onto the kitchen floor and split into several parts before my eyes.
To say I was annoyed at this point was an understatement as I picked up all the pieces and headed straight back to the man cave in a blind rage, I was best off out of the way and started the task of trying to salvage the train wreck. She retired to bed whilst I worked through the night, I grabbed 3 hours sleep while I let the glue dry and I managed to effect a full repair and repaint of all the affected parts. In all this item has over 30 hours put into it but I am very happy with finished article.
Here is a sneak preview of just a small portion of the base:
I have been steadily working through the Ancient Britons today and am making good progress.
Now the main reason I have not submitted anything else is I seriously miscalculated the number of tufts I was going to use, So I am now in limbo awaiting delivery of my order, which will mean I can finish off some more Nubian bases that are sat in the basing queue minus tufts. One thing I wont do is submit something if I have to go back to it to finish it off, for me personally once they are off my table they need to be ready to use, obviously if they have not arrived in time for the game on Thursday I will use them without tufts, but that is a small technicality as they will at least all be flocked.
The fanatics are calling me again folks as they are ready for another layer of flesh, thanks for stopping by today
