French guns - Fixed at last

I have finally put right a previous mistake where I had accidentally painted some French Crimean guns blue. They are now a more traditionally French green, which is handy as the original was embarrassing and led to awkward questions at parties. 

I have erased this appalling blot from the Kinch escutcheon. You may go about your business.


  1. Sleep will come more easily tonight.

  2. It's the sort of thing you loose sleep over, Tony

  3. A faux pas that luckily did not lead to a locked room and a loaded revolver, but I'm sure it was a close run thing.
    Best Iain

  4. Dear Conrad,
    We, your friends and admirers, can only but commiserate with your former plight. The spectre of repressed giggles as ladies glimpsed the offensive blue paint, the heads shaken in disapproval, the eyes averted in embarrassment...we've all been there. But that will happen no longer as this dreadful affront to all reall wargamers and their wives has been forever erased. Well done lad...and as the invading Brits might have said, you can now carry on with a stiff upper lip.

  5. French green you say, must remember that!

  6. Gentlemen, thank you for your kind words of support at this difficult time.
