Today "Blunders on the Danube" passed 200,00 page hits. Not bad for having started just a little over 3 years ago. No give-aways, etc, just my thanks to all who have visited, and especially left their comments.
We had a break in the cold and snow this weekend, so that meant it was time to follow the Prime Directive, and take advantage of the climactic conditions and prime some lead! So I got out most opf the projects I plan to work on the next few months, trimmed the flash off, glued the figures to tongue depressor and/or assembled models as needed and primed them in the garage - over 120 figures all told!
32 Old Glory Sherden Swordsmen
32 Old Glory Nubian Archers
32 Old Glory Egyptian Archers
4 Essex Chariots (purcahsed at 60%
Several Egyptian commanders
18 Prussian Landwehrr that I just found lying around
I am out of the office the first week of March - can you tell I have plans? The Egyptians etc are to expand my Egyptian army - aside from the above, there are also 3 more Old Glory Eyptian Chariots to assemble, prime and paint. I'll be running at least one game of "Pulse of Battle" at Historicon using them, to be opposed by Ken Baggaleys Canaanites. I also picked up a nice 6 x 10+ foot piece of tan/heather flannel to use as the ground cloth for the game, and I have a pair of "Ramses II" type statuary to paint for table dressing.
