Blues and Bags Done. . .

Blues and red silk bags done, red facings and turnbacks next, but I should probably finish up the metal bits on the horse tack before that.


A spectacular late summer evening here, cool, sunny, with just the sound of crickets in the background.  A perfect time for an after dinner family bike ride around the neighborhood, or The Tour de Cul Sacs as we call it.  The Young Master had so much fun that he requested we go around twice.  We were away an hour.  The longest he has ever ridden on his own bike under his own power.  It was the most fun I've had since the three of us were out on cross-country skis together last winter.  

Following his bedtime this evening, I stole back down here to Zum Stollenkeller Mk II to finish up the True Blue highlight on the jackets.  Metal parts on the horse tack tomorrow, which shouldn't take too long, just small dabs of paint really, so I might take out three small shrubs in a couple of beds before the sun sets tomorrow evening.  Ahhhhhh. . .

A Saturday Morning P.S.

We have picked up another couple of followers in recent weeks, bringing the number to 250.  Welcome, and I hope you enjoy reading about my various (mis-) adventures at the painting table, the lately very occasional game, and other hobby-related topics of interest.  Sometimes, things get a bit whimsical here, and I veer wildly off-topic, but we'll try to keep things mostly in the realm of toy soldiers.  Anyway, glad to have you following along.

It sounds idyllic, Stokes. A few more strokes of the brush, and you will be finished.
Best regards

Coming along very nicely. I'm impressed that you can paint these with them mounted on stands in twos!
