I didn't plan to post anything today but my Prince August order arrived and last night I finished my African tall grass, so I couldn't say nothing. I wanted to share the sheer excitement of an order arriving and a project finishing with a result over my initial expectations.
So today after cycling to the kindergarden with my little one, I arrived home o find a brown box from Ireland. Exactly a week ago I placed my order and I was expecting it to arrive next week at the earliest, but to my surprise the box arrived. I have ordered some Napoleonic French moulds that will be turned into Bavarians. The French Grenadiers will become Bavarian Grenadiers, and the polish lancers will be Bavarian Uhlans! I am really excited about those as I see them as the classic war-game toy soldier that you would see in Charles Grant, or Donald Featherstone's books about wargaming.

Last night I also managed to finish my african tall grass and I was amazed by the result, so much that yesterday in a trip to a local DIY store I bought some more aquarium plants. My Darkest Africa project is just started, but instead of rushing buying the figures, I decided I would start making the terrain necessary for the games. Once I will have enough terrain to represent African Congo I will start investing in the miniatures. Having said that I already had some british troops you can see in the photos and I bougth a box of Zulus from Warlord games, in order to wet my palate.

So this is it for this week as a friend will be over from Italy and I won't be able to post anytime soon.
