The Chaos is Subsiding...

Hi, All!

Wow! My second Blog in as many weeks! Who woulda thunk it?

Leggy bits with rivets an' that...

I am happy to report that things are starting to take shape Chez O'Truth. I have managed to do a bit of work on HMSW Gargantua, have sorted through most of my boxes of stuff, and was even able to get a game in with Scott Bowman and Notorious Greg last night - the first action Leadwood has seen in some time. A great time was had by all, even though Scott was basically massacred and Greg managed (as usual) to get just about every action card...

I've done two of these now. It's a bit tedious at times...

Anyway, for those of you who care, here's a closeup of me new foot. This is the front right foot of the walker and is intended to have its heel slightly raised from the ground, to give the model more of a sense of movement. A walker standing squarely on the ground with four flat feet might be ever so slightly more stable, but rather less interesting to look at.

It occurred to me that as the heel was raised, a little detail should be added to the sole - so I added some nice big, dangerous-looking studs.  Twenty of 'em. (oops! - I'll be sure to photograph them next time!) This amounts to 284 rivets for this leg - bringing the count so far to 2810!

As for the rest of the chaos... Here's a pic of Hobby Corner (my bedroom)! Somewhere in there are all my bits and pieces...


All the Best!

  1. As someone who has seen your shapely leg up close and personal, I must concur, it is a work of art! I look forward to the remaining two being constructed and being added to the beast, that is Gargantua!

    As for Leadwood - yes erm well, that went as planned didnt it! I have to say I have come to realise there is absolutely no point getting wound up about this game. You can be in the right place at the right time and your dice go phut! And of course you can equally be in the wrong place at the wrong time and be on the receiving end of a high speed lead injection... Maybe my luck will change when I get my own figures for this painted up!?

    Always fun none the less :-)
