I finally got to go check my favorite websites. On Bob Cordery's Wargaming Miscellany, he wrote of the television show CALLAN (Act of Kindness), which featured wargaming as an important part of the story. I found it on Youtube, but to be honest, I fast forwarded to the parts with the war-game scenes. I then watched a couple of episodes of BATTLEGROUND, starring Edward Woodward. As I have been painting some 1st gen Minifigs Napoleonics, these shows have got me motivated to continue to work on them.
This morning before going to work, I went to put some mail in the mailbox for the postman to pick up. When I opened the mailbox, there was the expected box with my new Napoleonics in it! My wife and I were so busy this weekend, both of us forgot to check the mail! It was well worth the wait. Back in the 70's I had send cash trying to purchase some Minifigs Brunswickers, against my parents advice not to send cash. Alas, the figures never came. It took 40 years to get my Brunswickers!.
|I have removed four of the figures and mounted them on washers. As with all the Minifigs I'm painting right now, they will be given a coat of gloss varnish.|
