It has been an veritable whirlwind of activity (nothing to do with Ciara and Dennis mind) on the domestic front with a pair of significant birthdays, two trips away, a wedding anniversary, parcel packing, two shopping expeditions and the assault on the man cave.
Despite all this I have made some fantastic progress with the Del Prado collection. All the Allies - Prussian and Anglo-Dutch - are now off their old multiple bases and on their new individual ones. That is some 70 mounted and roughly 250 foot. I am very pleased with this effort and so tomorrow will see me starting on the French with the first batch going into soak.
I reckon I have lost around 3 or 4 figures to irreparable damage sustained whilst removing them from their original bases which is pretty good in my opinion.
I have a few packs of figures acquired from eBay en route and I have also arranged a trade for some surplus figures from the collection of Bob Cordery that I shall be acquiring later in the month. I am really pleased to have gotten this done and although there is still a lot of work to do I am looking forward to the next phase which will see me getting the paint brushes out.
