Things are ticking along slowly in the Inso household.
The second Vulkan has been base-coated and the shading wash has been applied. The Officer Vulkan has had its base covered with sand and grit and is waiting for a sealing coat of PVA glue. Once that is dried it will have the rest of its undercoat finished and then a base-coat will be applied at a later date.
So...if things are only ticking along slowly...what has been going on?
I'll tell you what is going on...Salute planning. Yes, it is coming to that time of year when the gaming world gets one of its biggest UK shows. There will be a lot of traders, a lot of games going on, painting competitions and even a bring and buy stand. Of course there will also be a lot of gamers and miniatures collectors there to enjoy the day and meet friends from all over the world and from those on-line forums that everyone makes friends on nowadays.
What Inso has been doing is checking out the Salute website, seeing what traders are there, making a note of those he wants to visit (using a printed copy of the floor-plan, from the site) and deciding on the sort of things he wants to look at and maybe purchase. Last year was his first ever visit to a show like this and he got a bit confused by the whole thing. That meant he didn't meet everyone he wanted to, didn't see everything he wanted to, didn't buy what he wanted and went home with far too much money left. This year it will be different...hence the plan.
I'm sure that he'll miss something out but I hope he will have more fun at this years Salute because it is his last big fling before going to the Gulf for 2 months.
So...what's on his list then?
I'll tell you what, I'll keep you in suspense until tomorrow!
See you then :).
