From a hobby perspective, I have been painting little bits on the driver figure and have also been working on the gunners for the heavy weapons in the second platoon. but apart from that, not a lot.
I think the main thing about this week is that I have finally landed from the Falklands and have shaken off my, dare I say it, abject lack of motivation for anything... so that means that my head is straight and I can now start planning and clearing things, ready for the big push to freedom next year.
One thing that I plan in the future is to work on my retirement project which involves lots of converting and casting of 1/60 scale VOTOMs mechs. It will be just for me but it is something I have been collecting towards for ages. Unfortunately, one of my favourite mechs is the Diving Beetle and I have been unable to find a 1/60 scale, plastic kit for them (only a die-cast version which is no good for my needs). Fortunately, I have been able to gather most of what I want and yesterday, this one turned up:

It will be very useful because it is a Scopedog so I have more flexibility when it comes to chopping them up (the more I have, the more mistakes I can get away with) and also, there are the back-pack and other weapons that can be messed about with and added to other mechs too.
One day, my army will be complete and I will rule the world (in 1/60 scale) MWA HA HA HA HAAAAAA!
See you from my evil lair!
