Giving Up?

Hi fellow bloggers, it has been over month since the last blog entry, where does the time go? Pretty heavy here on the business and family front of late. But apart from finishing off a couple of commissions I have managed to assemble and paint a box of Plastic Soldier Company T70's, not a very effective unit but as annoying as gnats to the opposition. Also got a trip to New York in for my wife's "big" birthday, had a great time but very tiring, so much to see and do four days was no where near enough, still a good excuse to return in the future. Speaking of the future I was seriously considering just letting the blog slowly slip away, I sometimes wonder whether it is worth the time and effort involved, then out of the blue I had an email from a fellow blogger who's work I admire greatly, saying how my Carlist War project had inspired him to perservere with his own, this together with the subsequent telephone conservation swept away my negative waves, at least for now. Anyway, back to more cheerful things, the gnatski's, a Civil War monument in Brooklyn and a couple of shots of the Chrysler Building because I like Art-Deco.







 Only managed to get one game in so far this month this was a 1920's ganster game over at GHQ, click the link for all the gory detail. All things being well I will be over at GHQ again this Thursday, John is coming up from Cheltenham for a three way FIW bash.

  1. Keep on keeping on old boy, I always look out for new posts from yourself and Dave. I feel off my blog for about 12 months, to busy having a crap time with real life etc...

    All the best

  3. We all go up and down. I had an unremarked hiatus of almost 5 months. After all, the blogs are labors of love. Do it when you can. Love the T-70's! 1/72 or 15mm?

    1. Thank you Mattias, lots more WWII to come, I am finding it easier to fit in around the paying stuff, three vehicles a unit for instance being quicker than 20+ figures.

  5. Nice photos, especially the detail shots of the Chrysler Building. Know exactly what you mean about blogging, have been considering 'resting' my own blog for a quite a while but enjoy reading your posts.

  8. Phil, I gave up blogging because real life just got too busy. I sold up lots of figures, however I started up again but sadly I have nothing to look back on.

    All blogging deadlines are self-imposed, no one out in the wibbly - wobbly - wonderweb is "owed" anything from any bloggers. I would miss your work (and corrections of my Spanish).

    We do what we do, when we can and damn the torpedoes!

  10. Phil, Stumbling across your blog a couple of years ago is what encouraged me to start recording my own efforts. You have such great projects and I follow them avidly. Mark
