I have a potting bench in the garden which comes in handy. Today I bought another in Aldi's and customised it a tad-
assisted by my eldest daughter the project moved forward-
Paint was added then Railway scenic paper and artificial grass from Aldi's got some time ago.
Finally some inspiration for a late 17th century garden for the Duchy of Tradgardland which I intend to build on this table/board/set up
.All in all I am pleased with this wee project to provide an area to game /model in which can remain up.

Been a tad low on the morale front of late ( 3 ones on 3 D6 ) but a little brighter today. I enjoyed reading Conrad's article on al fresco gaming in the latest issue of Miniature Wargames whilst having a cup of tea in the garden. I also watched Army Black's Spring maneuvers-

57 varieties seems an appropriate number - the number of projects I have currently on the go hobby wise :), the diversity of books around me as I type and of course my age.Also I must say that there are 57 and more blogs which I read regularly for entertainment,enjoyment and inspiration.
The girls made a splendid meal last night and I look forward to presents today including the latest John Curry book on Lionel Tarr. Tomorrow and Tuesday will see me thankfully in work with the 57 varieties ( no offence meant) that make up a school. 57 not out I say!
p.s anyone watching SS GB on BBC1? I found it a tad slow at the start but have warmed to it greatly.
p.p.s does anyone recall a novel about Britain losing the war and people being sent over from Canada(?) as agents to the fallen UK? I really enjoyed it years ago and would like to read it again.

I have tried squares and I have tried hexagons so I thought I would try something different-
I set it up using a paper board ,some wooden houses and my late 19th Century/Early 20th Century Scandinavian armies using Airfix 20mm plastic soldiers. Not to mention an elk for local colour.

Black dog been sniffing around all weekend and I have done little hobby related. I was however browsing the web and found this-
I am currently looking at the LOTR Citadel figures of the 1980s on ebay and am sorely tempted. I have my Mythical Earth collection, my GW figures and my Vendel ones. Do I really need another collection,hmmmm...

BTW any reading suggestions on the period?I read Michael Howard as a teenager.Are the Ospreys the most economical source of uniform information?
