_so darker days and poorer eyesight makes dave a sad boy…
[Yes I have all the kit, I just hate spending money on electricity..]

So some 'bulk' stuff again- undercoated 40 or so figures for future developments;
- tidied up a few facets like horse blankets and horse colouring;
- FINALLY drew the courage to base my new French generals- two versions (mounted/ dismounted) and scenic them slowly;
-ditto an Austrian general who's been painted for a decade + and been waiting forever since… still one figure to apply, a wounded infantryman (Warg.F);
-inspected for the 17th time an entire unit PLUS (about 25 figs- mostly mounted) and on the one sunny afternoon I 'corrected' errors on painting on their sabretaches… whew- recalls that every second figure you can't even see the damn things!
- plus their 'leader' finally received his horse furniture in gold lace; edging towards completion (the figure is done).
- tidied metals and mounted a bunch of Austrian cav for completion of a couple units; half a hussar regiment and all the uhlans (only 6 in each…)

Other than those, mundane things like some new nice slim trays to replace the takeaway ones that hold the 'proposed' and 'semi-organised' lead pile; plus the tissue lined trays of 'painted' and unallocated fgures of yesteryear.

Oh well time marches on…
