Hello all. I have to make the seasonal confession of having achieved nothing over the last month or so Oldhammerwise. I have just been too busy with Church services (for work), Christmas nativities (for work), Christingles (for work), weddings (for family), visits from the dreaded mother (for family) and the general hustle and bustle of December in England.
However, I have managed to take advantage of the recent eBay miniatures frenzy. Unless you have been living under a rock, you will have noticed that an exceptionally well resourced collector, who may or may not be a well known and long serving member of GW (; ,has been selling a very large and unique collection of models online - including the fabled Nuln Spearman for over £1000! Well, the swarming waters Citadel collectors have frothed up have obscured several other nuggets that usually attract plenty of attention, namely Collector Sets.
As you will have seen in my photograph, I have managed to purchase a further ten clansmen (the useful sculpts with the cabers and shotput) and Marcus Grimmock, the fearsome C10 preslotta giant in recent weeks without breaking the bank. Despite having multiple projects on hand, I feel the urge to return to my ongoing mission to recreate the five scenarios for McDeath. With Christmas looming and a entire week free, I will have plenty of time to get stuck into painting up the models I will need. With both my blogging and painting skills rusty, I will need to get back into the swing of things before my festive diet of whiskey, mince pies and roast dinners finishes me off!!
