I have now almost finished my Sudan British Forces –



Still need to complete one British Battalion and add some Camel Troops. Once done I will turn my attention to the Egyptians

Looking good already, some camel troops will really set it off. Cracking painting.

I couldn't get past the sponsored ads but enjoyed what you posted here.Looks like you have a very nice desert basing recipe and it wd have been nice to get a closer look.

Hi Durban Gamer

I assume you mean Ads on the blog – there is only one ad link and sorry it spoiled your view

The deseert basing recipe is as follows

1. sand & ballast glued onto base with PVA
2. Painted with brown emulsion paint (colur coded to GW's Drab brown
3. Dry brushed with yellow ochre
4. Dry brushed with titanium cream
5. Add desert grass tufts

The edges of most of the stands have been blacked using a permanent marker pen

Which one is Corporal (they don't like it up 'em) Jones?

You have made a very good job of those but like Durban Gamer said the ad is a problem. It took so long to load that I went to another website while it finished. Then after I got rid of the ad it came back and took over half my screen. The pictures I then saw were no bigger than whats on your Blog. I resorted to just enlarging the view of the Blog. It might cost you some clicks if its not worth clicking on the pictures. Pleas don't let that put you off Blogging as its really satisfying seeing someone finishing projects at the rate you do them.

Downloading something like ublock will solve the problem of unwanted ads.

I had been running Adblock for awhile but turned it off as some sites won't let you visit when running it (on an iMac). Also some ads are inbuilt so you can't avoid them. Photo bucket is a horrible mess which I usually avoid if possible.

I do not think that word means what you think it means. evil grin

Are we talking about ads on my blog or ads on when you click on the pictures?
