This was a very good event for me personally and for Brigantes Studio as a whole as it was the first occasion I have had some time to do some networking and sort out a few plans and ideas.
As regular readers will be aware this is my ad-hoc year were I have decide to see how going with the flow works out rather than failing to meet planned personal targets and I placed a spending ban on myself until I was in a position of having cleared the stockpile. However something had to give on this occasion and the stockpile has grown.
+DAVE DOCHERTY to thank for this marvellous gift a Blackbeard bust and a Pirate flag, both very much appreciated and will inspire several figures in the coming months ahead.
I no longer need to covet any more in exchange for painting the Man of War I have received my own Man of War and a merchant Man, you can see where all this is going to lead me cant you. The whole plan is a very long term project so while I will be working the Man Of War very soon my own pieces will be much later in the schedule.
I also did some networking and have agreed to paint a set of the new Nightfolk for David and Jayne's display. I need a shrubbery!!!! Yes the latest release of the very Pythonesque Knights are in the Great Hall awaiting a lick of paint.
A trip to Colonel bills saw me purchase one of the Belt Fed Girls in my case it had to be Boobica!! though I may just have to add Moll Cutpurse to my ranks of Pirates in the future.
I also received the next batch of prohibition era figures from Dave, who returned later in the day with a freshly purchased box of G men and Cops to add to the commission.
I also met a lot of fellow bloggers and thank fully had some time to chat with most of them, its always nice to play catch up.
Well folks thats my haul from the day out I now have plenty to keep the paint flowing and the brushes working for a reasonable period ahead.
