I'll Be Back for Halloween

I've been having loads of fun here recently but my real life is about to get pretty intense and I won't have time to spend on blogger.  Hopefully I will be back on or before Halloween.


I'd like to thank Paul and Marzio for participating in the Neapolitan Painting Challenge as I really enjoyed enticing two historical painters take a walk with me on the Darkside.  The Blonde won, but not by much and that was down to the lack of clothing more than to anything else.

Lastly I'd like to say Thank You to Kris from Wargames and Railroads for the gigantic box of Reaper BONES miniatures and brushes he sent me. I knew Kris was going to be sending me some BONES, but I didn't realize he was sending so many, nor did I know he was sending me some of the Reaper Giants.


This is the Female Cloud Giant and you have to see these figures next to a standard 28mm figure to get a feel for the scale.  

Well folks it's Autumn and we've got some time yet before the bitterness of Winter sets in. So have a good month and make the most of it. I know I will.

    What a generous gift from Kris. I'm sure you'll have lots of fun painting those up.

  7. Have fun and enjoy it all. As for the gift I think it goes to show what a nice guy Kris is. And it truly is a nice looking giant and I know you'll do her justice.

  10. That is one giant giant. Now that the voting is over I can reveal I actually voted for the redhead because I preferred her. Congratulations on winning though. I hope you won. I think you did the blonde. In any case, I hope real life doesn't get too hectic for you.
