Merry Christmas! And a gift from a Friend

As the clock ticks, it draws ever closer, where we join with friends & family to celebrate Christmas. So to start, I wish everyone who follows my blog MERRY CHRISTMAS!


So as is my tradition, I offer you a festive eve, take the time to enjoy the spirit of the season, and remember those who are less fortunate. I also often reflect on those I've served with & the memories of Christmas's spent away from family. So my thoughts turn to those who are still serving today & hope their Christmas finds time for joy & blessings as well.

Also this is my last hobby post until likely the 27th at the earliest. So I leave you with another of my quick paint table projects. Merchant Carts!


These mdf kits were purchased a couple years ago from Blotz! Each contains 2 carts & there are 2 different models offered.


I will caution those who buy them that the joins are very tight, thus after snapping an axle & handle on 1 of them, I would propose some light sanding of the axles prior to mounting the wheels.


Otherwise they went together well, & then it was a quick job of painting them Barnwood base, followed by Wyldwood Contrast paint & then some Sand colour drybrushing.

On another note, I dropped by a friends place today to drop something off & he provided me a miniature he painted during the Analoque Challenge some time ago. One of their goals was to paint a miniature for someone.

 Jonathan painted this fellow for me. I believe he is from the English Civil War era, but I can see him easily fitting into a Silver Bayonet game too!


Perhaps Jonathan can find the Analogue Challenge post where this was entered to provide more details as to the challenge.

As always, thanks to those who visit my blog for my scatterbrained posts, as I truly am all over the place when it comes to my hobby projects.


So he will now sit on my shelf of 'painted' miniatures! Thanks Jonathan! 


  1. Merry Christmas Terry and best wishes of the season to you and your family.
