Cancon 2013 approaches and last night was my last night at Macksville for some time. I managed to get the base coats on the bases of the Later Hungarians complete however.
Now all that’s left is to paint the figures
Figures will be packed this morning and then placed ion a bag that will be carry on. After that they will next be see in Singapore for the next coats of paint … well … except for at every airport security check when, because they are very dark on the baggage x-ray, the usual question of “what are they?” will be asked. This will be followed, in Indonesia at least, of “are they expensive – are they made of gold?”
There will be no painting, and therefore no painting reports, until next weekend at the earliest. This week I am travelling to Indonesia so I expect to do some more reading. I have a fear though that the reading this week will lead me off on another wargaming tangent. Reading material will be The Western Desert Campaign 1940-41, The Bardia Campaign or Australia’s Palestine Campaign – 1916-1918.
OK, need to get packing for the train trip to Sydney (no more driving after the 5,000kms+ since 14 December 2012. I’ll leave you with a picture of the control group – the 5Wb.
