Some Dutchmen getting flocked
As you can probably tell the Dutch have been much in my thoughts of late, mainly because I'm gearing up for Quatre Bras. Thanks to John and Uwe for their advice regarding Dutch officers, I've ordered some from Art Miniaturen. The King Billy figures from Kamar was very, very nice, but at €3.20 for a figure with an additional €9 for postage, I just couldn't justify it.
However, the Art Miniaturen figures are very nice and include a very dapper Duke of Brunswick.
In the meantime, its been plodding work, adding a river section here, flocking some figures there, but no great leaps forward made in the hobby. Gorman and I took a 30km stroll yesterday in preparation for our trip to the Boyne in July. I won't say it was easy, but it was certainly less murderous then we were expecting. Expect a report with photos shortly.
We're doing this walk on behalf of the Kathryn Casey Memorial fund, a fund that is attempting to raise some money for a life saving machine for prematurely born infants in Temple Street Hospital, Dublin. You can have a look at their website here.
And now with aching feet, I'm off to work.
