Something a little different...

It's not all alloy and plastic men at chez Napier occasionally other toys are purchased.

This is Lego's Sopwith Camel model which the better half bought me as a birthday present a couple of years ago.

Regular readers of this blog will note that I put little plastic bricks together no faster than little plastic men.

Currently it is the centre piece on the dining room table, at least it has the right colours for Christmas. Maybe a little sprig of holly will make it look more festive!

WH 40K Sector Part 2

One of the advantages of the new(ish) house is that the garage does allow large projects to be set up and painted; in this case some sector tiles from Games Workshop.

The palette is reddish brown to give the effect of a Mars type planet. I thought I had a lot of appropriate scenery but then added it to the tiles and found it a bit sparse.

Guess I know what to ask for this Christmas!

Still I was pleased enough to dig out a few old Tau miniatures to see how they looked in the new cityscape.


Naturally, they needed a bit of opposition... which came in the form of some Dark Angel Space Marine scouts.

A proper battle is surely only a free evening away.
