Fresh from the Desk of the Reluctant Painter
« on: February 11, 2021, 01:22:16 PM »
I think I bought this set over 3 years ago and have painted them in dribs and drabs since.

Finished them last night  :o

Great models, lousy photos











Cup of tea and a biscuit now and then perhaps a snooze ... see you in 3 years!



No dear, they are not toys, they are models

Nice work.  Better late then never as mine are still waiting on the shelf.  Hopefully I will get them on the table for the new version of the game.

I should make more time for the things I love to do

A lovely and colourful interpretation of Curr's Incorrigibles.

Because of films and black & white photography lots of people see the Victorian era as being quite drab. However, this was the period when many bright chemical dies were being developed and promoted. So,it would not be out of place to have many characters in almost garish attire.
