John G is a crafty soul! He just implants an idea and then like an unwanted weed it just germinates and springs out upon the unwary! I had promised an army a month and that was what I delivered; Scottish, Norman, Hun and most recently Saxons. “ But, it’s now the end of May and so another is due, isn’t it?”
The conversation had started positively with me enquiring whether John would care to join the Dice Studz on the 4th June to start Freya- day Saga. He has the models and paints but does he have the necessary energy to complete his first minis in forty years? We shall see dear reader…
For me it was too late. Payday was imminent and the challenge was on. I went for the exquisite Matthew Buckley sculpts from Foundry. They are in Matthew’s “ chunky” style that I really like. They always remind me of those dastardly henchmen in episodes of Robin Hood. I needed four points of SAGA troops for the club night and I reckoned I could get away with thirty miniatures.
So stage one accomplished- the figures are safely at home and through customs i.e. the wife/ Fuhrërin. Cleaning up this evening and glueing tomorrow. Will I get an SAGA force together in a week? We shall see? Have you got a pal who works on your subconscious? Roll on the fourth of June.
