Late for 2008
Posted by Martin on January 9, 2008
That’s just how I feel. Ten days into the New Year and it’s only tonight that I think I’m catching up with everybody else who started 2008 over a week ago. Why?
Well, I’ve just been through a Christmas I don’t wish to repeat in a hurry. I’d expected about two weeks off work at home with the family enjoying the festivities and sneaking in a fair amount of painting time. What we got was a long trek north to Scotland and back for a family funeral closely followed by the worst bout of flu She Who Must Be Obeyed and I have ever experienced.
So apologies – I do have some photos of Steve Maughn’s Plancenoit demo game from Partizan that I’d intended to put here and in the gallery on the Calpe site. And I was aiming to take some photos of the landwehr casualty figures I was working on in December. Hopefully, I’ll begin to catch up this weekend.
I’m not the only one who’s plans were blown off course unexpectedly. Those of you waiting with bated breath for the first Calpe Saxons are probably going a bit blue in the face. Poor Peter has been delayed by an unexpectedly high level of Christmas orders and the fact that these figures need a substantial range of head variants. Peter also had a big family celebration he was duty-bund to attend over the holiday period. He’s only just got back to the workbench this week and has asked me to pass on his apologies to those of you patiently waiting.
