The Usual Result of a Decision to Focus

Yes, it was time to focus on getting my 40mm Homecast French Revolution forces ready. Despite the bitter cold and damp I sallied forth to the woodshed and fired up the smelter. In a short time I had a selection of heads and bodies for the project along with a head of unusable castings due to the poor conditions, and a handful of goblins and wargs.

Wait, what?


Yup. Well, I mean I had the mould but hadn't used it and...well what harm could it do to cast them. Not like I was going to paint  them and then get a 25mm Medieval/Fantasy game going? Right?

Yeah OK, not really a surprise then.

Up Next??  Why are you asking me?!?

  1. Sounds a result if not a plan anyway.

    1. I think I'm getting old! Converting figures is more work and less fun than they used to be. Playing, however, is more fun if anything!

  2. Frankly if I stuck to my plans, I wouldn't know who I am. Are these Prince August?

    Heading over to Gathering of Hosts to read the report there!

    1. The fantasy guys are Prince August. The rest are a mix, mostly Garrison with some RAFM and Revenge.

    1. Well, lets just say there is often a noticeable gap between what I think I "ought" to be doing, and what I actually do.

  4. Nothing wrong with a change of direction from time to time!

    1. As long as I get the Frencg Rev figures ready in time for the convention game.

  5. The road to war gamers' perdition is paved with unplanned projects and unintended diversions. Fortunately it is a very long, winding and scenic road...

  6. Ooh, fun. I’ve never got ‘into” ancients and medieval but this sort of thing could tempt me. I bought the Peter Dennis 1066 Paper Armies book and assembled some. Maybe I will get around to trying them out one day.
