I am still alive!


It has been some time since I last posted here. A lot of time has gone in the Analogue Hobbies Annual Painting Challenge. Plenty of figures have been finished and put up for show at that site.

A lot has been going on in the world of miniature soldiers over here. First I have actually  won the side-duel I had with Ben from Mister Rosbiff and Johnny Frog due to painting 200 points worth of 1:72 plastics first.

Next up, today was exciting because a large part of my figure collection is on display at the school where I work. We regularly have expositions showing arty stuff made by employees of the school and from today my stuff will be on show for a month or 2. I've had very nice reactions, both from co-workers and pupils alike.

Yesterday I came home and found an envelope from the UK awaiting me. It contained a whopping 45 Wargames Foundry Victorians which I ordered some time ago. They came in one of their marvellous old school black miniature boxes, besides that the nice people at Foundry put in 2 free bonus figures as well.

Tomorrow will be mighty exhilarating  too! It will be the kick-off of the side duel Anne and myself have going: the Femme Fatal Duel. It will be posted op at the Challenge blog and will include a poll with which people can vote for the winner and boy, am I going to need some support!  Keep your eyes peeled!

That's all for now folks!

Cheers Sander

A side duel with Anne, you brave man! Lovely to hear that the painting was well received at work too.
