What a week it has been. Familial dramas, PC malfunctions, birthdays and injuries - all par for the course over the supposedly Festive Season!
Today I intend to do the second stock-check of the Northstar/Crusader goods. (As regular readers will be aware I ordered figures during their late October sale and it took them nearly two months to replace the 40% or so that were miscast.)
To be frank (call me Ol' Blue Eyes) I am dreading this as the whole affair has really soured my enthusiasm for a rather exciting project. I greatly doubt that the "new" figures will be correct as nothing has gone smoothly with Northstar. However I am steeled and, if need be, ready to take up the fight!
As a Christmas Present, from my children, I received some rather splendid figures from the excellent people at Front Rank. These chaps are going to form the basis of a unique looking Regiment where the Flügelmütze/Mirliton is in evidence. Razor saw is poised.
Tentative plans for the weekend include getting the components for a couple of Regiments arranged and full boxing and cataloguing of everything C18 that I have available.
Anyway, enough of the rambling. I promise some decent and non-personal postings in the near future and hope that you all have a very
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
