A chilled out Sunday post.

Today has been a lazy day. I have only base-coated a few pairs of boots and some fatigues...nothing to write home about.

Over the last week I have been tinkering and preparing miniatures for paint and if you want to see how far I got, look HERE. Apart from that, I haven't really accomplished much.

Today, My family left me to my own devices as they all went off to my Mother-in-law's for the afternoon and that gave me a lot of time for thinking and surfing the WWW... yes, I could have got a lot of painting done...but I didn't.

I have had a few things on my mind. One of them was to sort out the drones in the Tunnel Fighter army...they were on long wire stands that meant the drones kept falling over so I shortened all the stems and they are now much more stable.

I have also dug out my Airborne Assault platoon and am in the process of filling in their bases so that they match the rest of the Urban Army...they used to have the Fenris 'Sulaco' bases which were very nice:

...but they just don't fit in with the rest of the crowd so I am filling them in with Green Stuff and will be giving them the standard sand texture that I have on all the rest of the troops. 

While I'm messing about with these, I may well be adding a few decals and rank badges...that way, they will become integrated into the support network for the infantry platoons. The walker and flier are not part of my plans so they will be staying as they are.

So...this week's holiday will mean I have a chance to un-wind, relax, get some chores done and sort a few little bits and bobs out that have been bothering me for a while.

I may even get the opportunity to have a swift pint or two... it should be a blast.

See you from the plans room!

Looking good, I love the individuality that you seem to bring to all your projects makes them all worth watching...
