Next project and a diet update.

First of all the great weigh in was done this morning after exactly one week on the diet. The result is I have lost five pounds! Really pleased with that, just another thirty to go. I realise I probably won't lose that amount every week, but it really has given me a lot of encouragement to continue on.

Now for the next project which is a whittling down of my stash. I have quite a few boxes of 1/72nd scale figures, some of which are for the Hundred Years War. A few figures had been painted a few years ago and then boxed and forgotten. So I have dug them all out to paint up.

First up will be...



A dozen or so English Longbow men that need completing.



Two boxes of French knights, still in their shrink wrap.



Contents of each box.



One command sprue.




Three common sprues. Two boxes equals 38 mounted knights.



It also contained the instruction sheet.



And rules for the long defunct 'Age of Battles' rules that Zvezda used to produce.

  1. Those are some really nice looking horses! Much better than the generic ones most plastic(and metal) push out. They should look great!
    And congratulations on the 5 pounds! Keep up the good work!

  4. Good news on the diet Ian, top stuff. Whittling down the stash is a good plan too - I indend to reduce the lead pile this year too, only stuff I am buying is for the big build, everything else is lead dieting!

    1. Cheers Ringo, this lot might end in the rubbish pile, soft and brittle plastic, legs and horse's tails snap off if you just look at them.
