Christmas arrives unexpectedly early... today!
Popped home to let Birdie the Wonder dog out at lunchtime, she had all but destroyed the leg of lamb bone I left her this morning. All was quiet as Mrs warpaintjj is at Chelsea Flower Show today planning a new terrain set-up - oops - landscaped garden! All three Miss Warpaintjj's were at school so I fixed a spot of lunch and a drink, them popped outside to munch & gurgle in the sunshine. It was then that I spotted two parcels...
Pressies for me!
Only two people pack & post like this & they both paint toy soldiers. Without checking these are as follows;- on top is a package from Barry Hill in the Philippines, this contains 2 x 36 Vistula Legion, 36 Polish line and 12 British Dragoons for the Peninsular War. Below is a package from Pete Morbey of Elite Miniatures containing a painted British RHA battery also for the Peninsular War collection.
I picked a painted Highland battalion on ebay recently too so further basing sessions are required. Obviously another progress post is needed when we get these underway.
