Hobby dead in the water? Well not quite...

The strange thing about the hobby is that it never completely dies. Just when I thought that my boxes of Napoleonic battalions would never see the light of day again... there they go (or at least one anyway). I pulled it out of storage on a whim and before I knew it I had bought three Osprey books to add to my collection. I can't say I am back in painting mode yet though - perhaps that is a little too much to hope for. But I can say I do feel rumblings in the magma chamber. In the meantime here are some pics.

Old Guard


New Vanguard titles- make a change from uniformology of the Napoleonic Wars

An interesting book on the Irish military diaspora - of which I knew nothing about.

A very slack blogger...

I apologise for my slack blogging. To be honest I haven't done any of my hobby for the last 6 months. A very sad confession to make. Life is just too busy at the moment! I have bought some more Osprey books which I shall write about later next week. The weather is starting to pick up a bit and the days are certainly starting to lengthen. Perhaps the increased sunlight will bring more vigour to my painting hobby?
