Sorry I didn't post last night but there was no news. Today, there is little more.

Painting has re-started on the Grymn heavy weapons squad and a straggler that was sitting on the shelf. The camouflage is complete and work is going to start on the armour soon.

The 2 Matakishi cats have been based and undercoated. One of the cats is sat on a bed, the other has a dead mouse on his base. The one in the bed is base coated and will end up ginger. The other one is undercoated and will end up black. Inso has two real cats and they are being the inspiration for the Matakishi cats.

Salute fever is everywhere! Lots of new releases from lots of different companies mean that plans are changing on an hourly basis. Lists are being written and torn up. Pre-orders are being made and changed. Roll on Saturday!

The big tidy has started in the Inso household. He has all but cleared his painting table and military kit is being sorted and packed. As far as I can tell, this means that the focus will remain on the Grymn and cats and the rest will be dictated by 'real world' chores and plans.

I'd like to take a moment to say something that I feel strongly about.

I'd like to offer my sincere condolences to all those families who have been touched by service bereavement. I am humbled by the latest news of the two RAF gunners losing their lives. My heart goes out to their families, friends and colleagues.

Catch you later.
