Before I went away to the Falklands, I made a deal with my wife that when I got back, we would go to Paris for a week... and that is what we did so this week has been one spent in Paris from Monday to Friday.
The week was one of sightseeing, enjoying the nightlife and generally relaxing after the last few month's trials. We had a great time, unwound and had a proper opportunity to chat and make a few decisions along the way. What did we visit? The usual things... the Arce de Triumph, Eifel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Damme... and we passed by a few popular places including the Moulin Rouge (which was in the sex district of Paris... I don't need to say any more!).
Looking back... I suddenly realised that this was the first foreign holiday that I'd ever had. Normally my foreign trips are for 'Queen and Country' and it really did make a difference being somewhere foreign where I could decide what I wanted to do.
Anyway... we got back on Friday and that means that there hasn't really been much opportunity for me to get much hobby stuff done.
But that doesn't mean that I have done nothing.
On the Squat platoon side of things, the troops now have moustaches and have all had the wire added to them so that arms can be sculpted on later. The next part of the process will be to shorten all the lasguns and prepare the other weapons for the conversions. The specialist will be assembled first (with his Spacemarine arms and plasmagun) and then the rest will get their weapons pinned on ready for positioning the arm-wire in the correct poses. I am taking pictures as I go so that I can put together a How To (because I have been asked to) so once I have finished the first squad for the platoon, I will put the guide together and show pics at that point.
On a different note... I have been working on the Sentinels and just have the heads to finish. I have ordered a third Vulkan Battlesuit so that I can add it to the squadron but I have to wait for that to arrive before I can work on it. In the meantime, here is where I am at with the squadron:
Click the Pic!
As you can see, I have kept the Sentinels fairly simple and have just added runes and the heads. The heads are still WIP but I will wait until I have the last Sentinel at the same standard before I work on all the heads at once.
So... that's about it for now.
Oh... in case you were wondering why there are no pics of Paris, they are on my laptop and I haven't fired it up yet so they will have to be for another day.
See you from Le Grand Arbre!
