Over the last week, I have come to the conclusion that a vehicle I was working on wasn't robust enough. So I went online and bought a bunch of plasticard from Antenociti's Workshop. Not only are the prices reasonable but the delivery time was very quick... so I can recommend them to everyone now. It means that I now have what I need to start afresh and make a nice robust vehicle that is suitable for casting.
In other news, I have recently joined a new forum called Random Platypus. It was originally a 'Not Frothers UUK' but now it seems to be gaining a shape of its own. As a result of joining the forum, I have taken up a challenge to paint a squad in a certain time-frame; which means I have picked up a brush again and have started to paint these:

They are the first squad of converted Rogue Trader Imperial Guard that have been turned into Squats. I have finished a 'pre-base-coat' which I will now call a 'disgrace coat' because it is a lot messy... however, it is a start and will hopefully motivate me to continue with them.
I have been browsing around and have now discovered that Prodos Games has the new style Vulkan up for sale. Here is a pic:

It is a gorgeous little model that has a choice of weapons and is very much worth a punt at £14.99. It is also perfect for my converted Squats to use... so I very much expect to be getting one or two in the future.
And now for a complete change of direction... the Robins are nesting in out kitchen extractor fan again. I managed to get a very blurry picture of the chicks and there are at least two so once they are more established (and I have my ladder back from my friend), I will get some better pix that are good enough to show off. I am glad that I followed the advice I was given; not to clean the nest out after the first clutch. Isn't nature great?
Well... that's it for now.
See you from the construction table!
