Well, inspired by the recent new releases for Artizan's North West Frontier range I have finished the first figures for my British force. The officer on the left comes from North Star's delightfully eccentric tea time range. With his properly extended little finger he makes a nice contrast with the grizzled chap on the right, from the main command pack. More on them on my Subcontinent blog.
Eric had to postpone his latest Shed Wars this week which meant I could escape and have an illicit free evening, which I did with my friend A. Wondering what to take her in exchange for dinner (which I ended up cooking - so wondering what to take her in exchange for ingredients would be more accurate) I found a small (50cl) bottle of Tawny Port at the bottom of my wine rack. We had been discussing Port during our last breakfast and as I'm not really meant to drink that much of it I thought having someone to share it with would be a good idea. More about this on my food blog, naturally.
