Procrastination happens on holidays too!

Hello everyone.

Being on 2 weeks leave (and the current crappy weather!) should have given me ample opportunity to get a serious amount of painting in. Trouble is it hasn't.
I find it absolutely astounding how much time I have been able to waste by eating copious amounts of toast and watching far, far too much Oprah and mid-day Television...

So, in the first week of my break I have only managed to get 2 Stukas completed out of the goal I set my self for the first week of 8 stands of infantry, 3 stukas and priming all my Tiger tanks.
I suppose I can console myself with the fact that I do have 4 stands of infantry that just need to be based.

Here are my completed Stukas.

I'm quiet liking how they turned out at the moment. I was a bit apprehensive of the colour scheme I had set out on, but it certainly grew on me while painting. There are a few things I would do better next time around. Perhaps some better research into making them look more historically accurate and I have made a few small mistakes on the decals but I can live with that.

Another thing that needs to be worked on is finding a better place to take photos of the miniatures...

Please feel free to comment, suggest and criticise!

Apart from that it has been a fairly exciting week in which I have spent large sums of money on buying Rulebooks and Boardgames!
Warhammer Historicals is currently having 50% off all their historical gaming rulebooks!! If you have been weighing up whether to purchase any of these products now is your chance! The average price of one of their books with the 50% off applied is about  NZ$20, with shipping to New Zealand at a flatrate of around NZ$12.
Between Mike and I we now probably have their entire collection (whether or not we utilize them is another matter).
I'm unsure of how long this promotion lasts but I kind of gather it will be a very limited time and a once in a blue moon opportunity.

The other thing I am excited about is my Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game from Fantasy Flight has arrived and I hope to be giving it a go sometime this weekend. From the reviews I have been reading it looks to be a fun game!
