Festive Sales

As usual, the various smaller miniatures companies are having Christmas time sales to tempt me to spend money. For example, Copplestone is having a 15% off sale this weekend (code word xmas), which would be excellent for someone who wanted to pick up a few packs of, say, Neo-Soviets, or the 10mm Fantasy range. The pound is not quite as low as it was this time last year, but still well below two years ago.

Fortunately, I am pretty resolute in my not spending more money. At least until the FLGS has some sort of sale, then I am snapping a few things up.

In other news, I was able to find a new shelf to fit into my painting desk, so spent some time rearranging the paint and other contents. This, of course, replaced me actually painting. I did take a picture of the desk, so at some point I could post about it. Thinking ahead, see?

I have nearly finished reading the Ravenor Omnibus, which I read while on vacation (long plane flights are ideal for light reading). Lots of interesting ideas there for an inquisitor's retinue, as well as various PDF/guard/criminal/scum sorts. Ideas include a gun slinger reaching for a pistol, as well as gun servitors.

While on vacation I also saw lots of inspiring architecture, which will hopefully figure into my future terrain. NYC and Yale in particular had inspiring buildings, which will fit into the pulp or 40k milleu.

No model progress lately, mostly due to being gone and prior to that busy finishing up the bathroom. I hope to get the "Delaque" gang done, and then paint it fairly quickly. Of course, lately, "fairly quickly" has meant months, so we will see.
