|I do like the mass effect that is possible 10mm- the brigade marches to battle|
I made some rocky outcrop terrain pieces from cork sections this week too, along with finishing the last of the trees to add to the table - takes it up to 200 of them altogether.
I just need to get my 3 limber teams done this week
|Another plus to the 10mm is they make this kind of thing economically viable!|
I have some Confederate troops on order from Pendraken to pick up this week to start with the opposition. I will be mostly finding someone to paint them I think as the old eyes are not holding up so good with them. So much so I have had to resort to using some magnification.
|A 2x magnification Optivisor|
I have previously tried a magnifying lamp but I could not get away with that. The Optivisor is comfortable to wear , not too heavy and it is making a real difference. For now I only need it for 10mm , reading glasses are fine for any larger figures or terrain.

This week has also seen work on Curt's Stradiots - with all the fiddly bits now completed , namely the shields, hats and faces .. just the main clothing parts and highlights left to do,
|The last of the paint table lurkers!|
The clock is ticking down to the launch of the winter challenge... stand by your camels!
