2022 Goals

 Well to recap on last year's hobby goals none met, in fact, no figures were painted at all. Very disappointing.

On a better none, 2 stone lost and one Master's degree achieved.

A poor end to the year with the 85-year-old ancient father admitted to hospital with a water infection and there he caught covid.. twice! Got him out of the hospital, very weak and ill-looking. The hospitals seem to suffer from Dr's constantly overriding the approach of the previous Doctors and nursing staff not identifying that a patient too weak to feed himself is not just not hungry but unable to eat. No eating for over a weak is starving to death not lacking in appetite.

Anyway, back with us now and improving every day.

I hope you all have a great New Year.

2021 Goal Setting

Goals for the hobby which has been inspired by the Dead lead Project Blog, only much shorter.

·         Finish an old figure. I’m spoilt for choice on this.

·         Finish a skirmish force for a project. At least a gang sized one.

·         Repaint an old miniature.

·         Average one figure a week, so 52 miniatures in total.

·         End the year in the positive painted versus purchased.


Personal Goals

·         Lose weight to help control my rampant high blood pressure and borderline Diabetes.

·         Finish my master’s degree. This is a last chance after deferring for several years. I only need a 40.

The temptation was too great ...

I saw a sale on E-Bay which I just couldn't resist, some really old school figures a couple of which I already have,  but 15 miniatures for £1.50 each including the one I was really after was for sale on its own from another seller for £8.99. I'm very pleased and they will find use in Rangers of Shadow Deep.
