Update and Merry Christmas

Hi folks,

I'm still without internet access and have been using what time I have free after work and unpacking to sort out my new painting room and continue to work on proofing/editing my sisters newest novel. The Analogue Painting Challenge started on the 20th and so far I've not picked up a paint brush! On the plus side I now have a decent sized painting room. Book shelves are up with plans to add a third, my Spitfire picture is on the wall, I've plans to add a 2nd desk and office chair... really pleased with it so far, even with replacing the bulb in the room with a 100 Watt LED bulb to improve the light!

Anyway, later this month should see the return of net access and paint and chats while I get geared up for Gunuary!

I'm planning to get my limbered 17 Pounders done for the start of January to get some points on the board. I'm also thinking of getting my 5.5's done with transport... so the whole command group as well. It looks like V4 Flames of War won't use command stands and lots of OP's - but I'll paint them anyway! I'll also look at any transport needed to finish off my 25 Pounder batteries. My Polish Sextons are also on the cards for early January!

If there is time, I've German artillery and AA to do, British 3" Mortars (another platoon for my planned Poles).

Gunuary is for all things artillery related, so feel free to join in and start the New Year with a BANG!...

In the meantime I'd like to wish all my gaming community friends a Merry Christmas! I hope Santa is good to you all and your lead pile grows accordingly!


  1. Season's Greetings, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

    I can paint up some 10mm ACW artillery and limbers for Gunuary. What do I need to do to take part - any special blog to post to, or group?

  2. And a merry Christmas to you too


    1. Thanks Steve, we'll need to get a game sorted!

  3. All the best to you and yours at Christmas mate!


  4. Merry Christmas. I love seeing your Brit/Polaks. I feel less alone in my megalomania....

  5. Merry Christmas, good to hear you are getting sorted

  6. Sounds like the setup is coming along nicely Jamie – hope we get a pic so we can see it once it’s presentable?

    My Xmas mate and a very happy new year to you and the wife.
