My longtime opponent bought the starter set for Gangs of Rome and l will buy in at the stage when the urban cohorts and night watch are released. I felt numbers attending the show were up from last year and it was great to see families,women and children in greater numbers. A positive note for the hobby.

A quick look at the painting bureau. A 28mm gardener figure carries a heavy sack of tulip bulbs ready to plant, some statues with plinths made of cotton reels and an ornamental pond made of modelling clay. Above out of shot are some S range cavaliers and to the left (also out of shot) are medieval Scots l have had for years awaiting becoming ready for Lion Rampant. Some reference material to be used to create a foam board building. That’s about it ,off to catch what is left of the sun.

The first photo is of some of the 16th century figures and the second is the one l failed to put in the previous post. Can you tell me if they are indeed S range Minifigs? Thanks.
I have recently bought some old Minifigs which I am led to believe were painted in the 1970s . Their slender shape and simple painting style greatly appeal to me. Whenever l buy painted figures l tend to leave the paint job alone especially if it is pleasing like these ones. Sentiment influences me as I like the fact that the artistry of another individual (unknown to to me) lives on in my armies. I have another contingent coming which will give me two ecw sides of reasonable size. I imagine these figures to be S range and will continue to look out for others to add to this project and my 16th century one too. As a postscript after much frustration with myself I finally managed to add the photo. Hopefully this means my posting can continue via the iPad until I buy a new pc.
