Well, that was a pretty hopeless month in painting and gaming terms, despite my best efforts to crack on with the backlog of stuff to do. My only real achievement was to build the pirate sloop from scratch. Other than that, I singularly failed to finish anything that I set out to do at the start of the month.
On a more positive note, I have started the pirate gun crew which hasn't made much progress yet but has to be finished for the 9th. I don't think the holiday painting plans were very realistic but I now know that it's feasible to paint away from home without too much hassle, although decent lighting is essential. I'll take some figures to France at Xmas to continue the experiment.
It looks like November is going to be pretty busy at work, to say the least, but I'm definately going to finish off the pirate gun crew and try to start and finish the Rapid Fire! Tommies by the end of the month. I also have several games lined up so at least I'll get to enjoy a few evenings out instead of marking!
