With friends like these...

...why bother to plan things?

I had a plan for my hobby this summer:work on the LRDG project. I had purchases planned out and everything. Then Laffe told be about the new Group Build over at the Guild, themed Fall of the Reich. Oh well, I have a Tiger II and a bunch of late war CP Models Germans waiting to be painted, I'll move them up the queue, the Con where we intend to run LRDG isn't until November. Plenty of time for both.

Then, yesterday, this lands on my doorstep completely unannounced:

Notice anything? Yes, that's right: 28mm! With alternate heads for use as LRDG!
Down the toilet goes the plan and instead I was up late putting these together:

Absolutely gorgeous figures!
Anyone care to start a pool on how long it will be before you see one of these reviewed here?

  1. I wager 43 days, or the 18th of july.

    1. You are a week off, payday is on the 25th!

    2. I expect you to crumble this month and then I added a couple of weeks for delivery and write up.

    3. Nope, this month I have other purchases planned. LRDG in 20mm in fact. And I'm saving up in case we can make it to London for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary later this year.

  2. Hmmmmm.... I have a vague recollection of last year.
