So What Is Approaching?
When I stopped blogging last year I began to either box up my old figures or sell them off. I had a lot of figures and the family needed the extra storage space. I have sold off a great weight of painted and unpainted lead. All those Airfix figures are gone as well. The family have a lot of attic space but what was left for me?
In 2012 I started to collect the rather charming 20mm WW1 figures from Tumbling Dice. Fortunately they were not disposed of and as 2014 marks the centenary of the conflict I cannot think of a better place to pick back up on the hobby. I have painted a few more German infantry and just need to finish the bases before I photograph them.
I have settled on the "Crush the Kaiser" rule set ( a couple of solo runs with unpainted figures has already produced enjoyable results). So it is back to the painting table and try and remember the colours I used when I started.
