Because, like cowbells, the world needs more of them. I am starting up a blog on my site, to help me stay a bit more focused on my job, my side business, and of course my hobby. So over the last couple of days I have played around with making flags for my 54mm AWI armies, making roads with latex caulk, and a head swap between an Army in Plastic figure and All the King's Men heads.

My mantra is quick, easy and cheap. You will not find many award winning paint jobs or thunderbolt ideas but you will find how I get my figures on the table in a way that is good enough for me.

I hope you enjoy and feel free to comment and make suggestions.

Like the flag idea!

It's even quicker to simply glue the two sides of the flag together with PVA adhesive and bend the ripples into it while the glue is still wet. When the glue dries the ripples are fixed. Saves all that messing around with heavy duty foil. Cheaper too!

I made some roads like that using tan caulk. Saved a step in painting. Not sure of the price difference so it may be more cost effective to use the white and paint it.

Have fun with the project!
