Success!

The cunning plan that I outlined in my last post actually succeeded! I managed to extract my White Russians, VBCW, Fantasy Naval and Wars of Turkmenistania figures from the store.

So I can - hopefully! - make some progress with these projects:
  • The White Russians have half-a-dozen cavalry to finish off, along with some baggage/supply figures.
  • VBCW has a detachment of sailors and a couple of vehicles to do
  • Fantasy Naval - the ships are painted but their bases need doing
These are on top of what I already had out of the store, my battlemechs (adde 3 with eBay purchase) & some other smaller stuff ...

So time to start doing stuff I guess!!

Cunning Plan ...

As I just posted on the Wars of Turkmenistania blog, I have a cunning plan to rescue some of my toy soldiers from storage tomorrow.

The place I have my stuff is open from 10am to 4pm so I have a 6hr opportunity to get my White Russians, VBCW and maybe my Fantasy Naval stuff.

Unfortunately there are 2 things against this ...

  1. They're all right at the back of the store, behind a fridge freezer amongst other things, so it's going to be hard work - something that I am against on principle
  2. I've planned to do this for the last 3 or 4 weekends in a row, and my recent tendency to visit the pub the evening before, where my new friends force me to imbibe several pints of Guinness have led to me being ... shall we say 'unsuitable' for physical exertion the next day
I shall try my best to fight through these obstacles! :)

Moving home ...

The sale of my previous abode has been agreed for a while now and - as these things do - is trundling slowly to completion ....

I've also found a place to buy, for which my offer has been accepted!  So that'll take its own sweet time to complete ...

Unfortunately, due to a lack of realisation of how much stuff I have, all my wargames stuff is at ehe back of the storage unit I'm using - I had thought I'd be able to get to it, but all the stuff I've got means there just isn't the room to reach it ...

Oh well,  just have to wait until I'm in my new home ...
