On the painting/gaming front I finally managed to finish some dead livestock that have been lying around (literally) half-completed for ages: Warlord Games' Dead Cows. Ideal for WW2 Normandy, and possibly a good name for a backing group (Pendragon Without & The Dead Cows?!). This pack comes with a dead horse too, which I have already used in my Indian Mutiny set-up.
I also completed 4Ground's excellent 15mm Militia Blockhouse. I can't fault it - it does exactly what it says on the tin. Now it needs a bit of a scenic base to complete it, and possibly a thin wash just to darken it down a bit.
And finally, I received through the post some extra naval bits for my 1/6000 games - some merchant ships from Bend Sinister (www.bendsinister.co.uk). Some are afloat, and some are sinking, but all are very nice! Ideal for convoy games as you can imagine.
Hoping to post on PTS this weekend, so until next time.............
