Happy New Year To You All !

Happy New Year one and all,
Yes i know its late but i have been sick all over the holiday (lets face it, it wouldn't be a holiday without spending it in bed with the shakes !) so i wasn't in the mood for Christmas or New year cheer. I have tried on numerous occasions to pick up the brush but you know what man flue is like it beats you every time. So what will i be working on this year ? well there is still my ACW 28mm project i ill definitely be adding to my New Zealand wars in 28mm I do like Ebor Miniatures War of the Spanish Succession in 28mm just for the joy of painting those sculpts. And i am sending off for the Two Fat Lardies I ain't been shot mum rules so there will be plenty of scope for 15mm world war 2.
   And as ever there will be plenty of other periods that will fall under the brush but will probably go under the hammer (that sounded better in my head) . I have just sent off for a shed load of supplies so i need to start selling and hustling for commissions to pay for it all .
I have tagged on some of the New Zealand war miniatures that i have completed as you will see on this post and others coming up women's fashion is not me so i am not sure if they ever wore these colours in the 1840s but i thought i would brighten them up as the men folk are rather drab. The Militia were supplied by the 58th Foot so the hat has there facing colour (black) around the cap band, the shirts could be white,grey or any civilian style when on campaign.
    The civilians could be used for a range of dates and country's . i kept the bases simple with just a few standard tufts i said it in my last post that i really rated these sculpts and i still do, lovely work Mr Hicks.
Any way that's it for now there will be an eclectic mix in up and coming posts if the painting desk is anything to go by. And remember if you do come down with the man flue keep away from the painting desk it only ends in tears !
Regards Furphy.
