A little bit of naval gazing...

Hi, All!
Roger the Cabin Boy employs the age-old stealth technique of shouting a lot...

Well, paint me blue and call me Susan! It's been two months since my last post! TWO MONTHS!

I could go on and on about work commitments, kids, and secret missions to obscure hotels with dusky foreign maidens, but you wouldn't be interested in that...

Anyway, here I am. Sorry for the delay.

Commander Smythe-Smythe-Harrington-Smythely. He tends to do a lot of pointing.

After such a long break from counting rivets, I have allowed myself to slip slowly back into the hobby with some nice, simple painting. And I have to report that despite complaints from Lieutenant Boddington and his army-types, I have decreed that HMSW Gargantua will be filled with a load of salty seamen as soon as possible.

So here they are.

See...?

These fine fellows (from Copplestone Castings) have been coloured using my usual ink techniques. And I think you'll agree, they've come out rather well. Granted, the blue may not be very dark, but I like 'em. And as far as wargaming goes (and other things too, for that matter): If it ain't pretty, I ain't playin' with it!

On the good ship Gargantua...

Captain Birdseye at the helm. Or at least, where the helm will eventually be...

And that's about that for now. I promise to get back into regular blogging and the continuing development of HMSW Gargantua. Watch this space, chaps and chapesses!

All the Best!
