ok Day 6 of 3 month self isolation

HOLY Christ! (and his little doggy) im bored!!

ok as practical 45 year old (with type 2 diabetes hence the 3 months)  its time for me to set a PLAN!

Well anybody who knows me will know the following things

(a) the waters is impatient amd the concept of relaxing and doing nothing drives the waters crazy

(b) the waters has been in the miniatures/wargames industry (at a personal/semi professional level) all his life so the lack of the ability to get a game drives the waters crazy

(c) the waters is very very flaky/flimsy and has problems finishing projects

(d) the waters realises that talking about the waters in the 3rd person is not a good sign

so what has the waters decided to do about it


so with the above 4 facts i have decided to try to keep a structure of work (ie getting up changing out of bed things and then going and spending a significant amount of time in another room)

and i am going to promote my miniatures line and most importantly my upcoming wargame "Goblin civil war". (known as GCW)
the original plan was to spend the year polishing  of the rules and promoting it at any wargames show or venue i could get too
and prep it for a KS release for the christmas market

well thanks to a bat, crushing poverty of rural china and localised chinese government,
thats not a viable plan anymore (not mention many of my wargameing friends are diabetic/half health issue or are on the wrong side of 60 and i am hoping not to lose any)

so here is the plan

(a) get GCW to a playable and printable state

(b) promote it to the worldwide collection of shutins the wargameing/gameing hobby at present is

(c) provision my last successful but low success kickstarter (which with my general feelings of despondency ive been slow to do sorry guys but thanks for backing me)

how the above will happen i dont know today is thinking day,
tomorow is Doing day


that is all

PS heres the group shot of my GCW refugees pack, monks with guns command (complete with bishop with luger) and my Spanish inspires "rural militia"

Rolls Eyes "typical Flaky artistic type" strikes agian!

hello all ---------------------------------- yea its been over a year since my last post here artistic doldrums and depression strikes agian!!
but neh mind lets move on im in the mood agian!

What sort of mood?

a Flintloque mood!

so those who know me will know that i have moved from one end of the country to the other (kent to rural northen scotland/joccia) so most of my stuff is still in storage back in dover :(

but Hey Ho! neh mind i am resourceful (and i have internet connection)

the models are a mix of 54008 62nd foot lt inf, 54010 62nd foot fusileers, 54014 45th foot  line
and the command group is a light inf officer from 54001 105th command, sargeant with (modded polearm) from the 54000 62nd foot command and the cornet blower is my favourite greatcoat wearer the spade bearer from the 54029 albion engineers pack

they are converted slightly below my standard uniform mix (1/3rd greatcoats 1/3rd forage caps/bareheaded 1/3rd full uniform)

werewolf jagers

hello all heres something new i do commision work for various people and here are the first 5 (of 12) of some flintloque jagers based on the one of the origional werwolf packs they did

they are known as the "were basil brush" models  --- i like them but the sculpts were done before a lot of the canon was written,
In the fluff the breaking of the empress morgannas power ring caused many creatures who were "magicly assisted"  to lose thier magic the most common examples are that wizards and tribal shamans lost most of thier power (they had a small amount left based on faith rather than magic)
the affect on the Diberian werewolf communities in game was rather than being humans who could transform they became stuck as either were or human without the magic to help the transformation, of course the "humans" were qiuckly overcame and the species now bred true as wolfman hybrids of course this only caused even more problems and racial tension with their traditional canine enemies the ostarian gnolls

so back to the sculpts nice models but with "had a transformation" torn uniform (and no trousers)
so to bring them back into modern canon here they are with uniforms, greatcoats cartridge boxes and most importantly trousers!
