It's been a fairly quiet week on the painting front, thanks to my birthday and Mothers day. I have managed to start on the archers for Wars of the Roses and I working on a deadline now as I have a game arranged in a months time.
Meanwhile I'm still moving the Sudan project on, I needed some buildings so we could represent small settlements in the game, I choose these from Baccus, nice crisp castings and straight forward to paint.
I have been hunting for small scale Palm trees for a while too and managed to get a box of 100 from China for £8, I was initially concerned they were too tall but I'm happy with them now, date palms, just one variety of hundreds, averages 30', other varieties can reach 150'. I may make up some oasis pieces as well.
I don't normally get gaming related stuff for my birthday but I did get a copy of Mike Snook's excellent 'Go Strong into the Desert' and plenty of Salute spending vouchers.
