Plans for the Autumn

Taking photos of the shed for the proposed magazine article has prompted me to rethink win what order I'm going to tackle the lead mountain.
I think that the first thing that needs to be done are the 10mm Prussians and ACW figures. These will be based for RF&F so should get me usuable units fairly quickly.
At the same time I'll try to drop a few units of 15mm Persians in as there are quite few of them to do. Especially as I've got the War and Empire 2 figures coming at some point.
I'd like to go to Colours as I need little things like flags, casualty markers and bases. Going ti a show will allow me to save on the p&p, as well as perhaps allowing for a bit of Father/Son bonding if either of the boys come with me.

I hate technology

I have been asked if want to contribute to one of the wargaming magazines. The words were easy-ish but I've had no end of problems trying to get good enough photos to go with the article. Finally I resorted to taking my phone out of its case and using every setting on the camera to take the same shot. Hopefully the editor can make some kind of silk purse out of this cow's ear.
