Has a date for 2020 been set yet? The sooner I hear the more chance I can avoid work bookings and family holiday get-togethers getting in the way, as for the last few years. In fact ever since the first one!

Yes, there was a sign up during this year’s BOYL. Friday July 31st to Sunday August 2nd and I understand Deincourt rooms are going fast.

Harry, I know the banner you saw in April (top-right of the picture) still hasn't made it to a standard bearer yet!

^I confess, I am really impressed that you manage to plan this stuff that far out in advance. Me, I just need to plan how to get stuff there next time. Anyway . . . looking forward to it! Hard to argue with a bunch of beakies and the old pantaloon marines are especially nice.

Nothing to do with BOYL, here's what's currently passed over the painting table in the last few days - Knights ( I know still abit of work to do, but their getting there, OK) with a scattering of infantry in the background!

Who is that grinning feller crouching behind the table looking at the figures' rears from a model's-eye point of view?

PS: 'Loverly' paint-job on those figurines.

A photo of one of my older brothers, sadly no longer with us, but fondly remembered.

Thanks for the kind comment

I've got a shed load of those ex-Citadel cavalry in a half painted state as well - but your paint job there is quite inspiring. Might have to fish them out and finish them.

Thanks for the kind comment, I have to be honest - it's a fairly basic paint job with just dabs of colour to enhance the overall look, my terrible photos also help hide the fact just how basic the painting is. :lol: :lol: :lol:
