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!

Proof of Life!

Hi, All!

She survived the move! And now for the continuation...

OK - I know I promised I'd blog more frequently... and then stopped again... but now I REALLY PROMISE I'll do more!

Actually, it's been a busy time of late, what with moving house and conferences in Auckland etc, etc. But now that work has settled down and (most of) my life is no longer in cardboard boxes, it's time to get hobbyising again! Huzzah!

See!? I am working again! I am!

Just to prove it, here are some pics of leg-type bits for HMSW Gargantua, all laid out on me nice big dining table this very eve! Soon the smell of glue will fill the air and I shall be giggliing insanely as I count rivets!

A pile of feety bits! What a lovely sight!

So enough waffle from me! Bring on the solvents!

Leg bits! And look! Rivets! Yay for rivets! I've missed 'em! Ahahahahahaha!

All the Best!
