Actually the iced lolly sticks are more realistic than a lot of produced ones. Good job!

Indeed.  I made a graveyard for my Cowboys with a plastic set of headstones.  It wasn’t until I started dry brushing the headstones before realising I’d buried Kurt Cobain!  :(

Thanks lads. The pupils were fascinated with the possibility of
putting the names of each other's character on such a 'marker'.
When the time comes that is.
It has added an extra layer of chrome to the Wild West games.

Noice (and clever) work - reminiscent of the movie "day of the Triffids"!

I eat a lot of humble pie, that is for sure.

Magical Chinese Dragon, courtesy of my lovely wife buying bits
from a local aquatic shop for me.
I will use them in Dracula's America, Pulp & similar games.

Thanks Marianus. Every time we go to our local garden centre I have
a look at the aquatics section to see what I can use. The last time
it turns out that the aquatics section is moving (to another garden
centre which is not too far away) and therefore were having a '50%
off' sale. I bought a few bits & my lovely wife bought some others,
'To add to your Christmas presents'  (Love that girl).

Seeing the banana skin exotic plants up close, I have to say “genius”!

Thanks Digits. Having seen (only in pictures) your splendid jungle work,
that is praise indeed.

Start of a new year & decade.
I have decided to set myself a target.
At least 12 'things' to be completed each month in 2020.
I will start with 24 Guerrillas, for my Peninsular war in 28mm.
No great reason why I will start with them, there is a lot in my lead mountain,
but I will be playing a Peninsular game with the lads this weekend. I doubt
they will be ready for it, but at least it is a start.

Either this idea will work & I will reduce the mountain, or it will
turn out to be a... 'GROSS' mistake. (see what I did there?)

Photos as, and when, I complete anything.

12 things a month! That's 3 a week  :o
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.
