After a few days of enforced rest due to my back giving out whilst overexerting myself with manual work (old recurring injury and not being as young as I once was) I hope that by the weekend I can get back to sorting out a couple of forces for my fantasy Medieval forces for Lion Rampant.
Before the injury I was sorting through literally thousands of 28mm figures that I had in different boxes of all sorts of makes. A hell of a lot were painted & based, but even more were not and they ranged from the around 12th to 15th centuries. Also I found that there are three distinct sizes of figure with the biggest being Front Rank & Essex figures, the middle sizes are mostly Old Glory and some later Foundry and the smaller figures being Hotspur and the original Citadel figures. From this I decided that the best option was to separate the three sizes out and use them for different purposes and armies.
Apart from this I have been almost unable to walk and basically bed ridden so I decided to make lots more flags for my new 'pet' project. I suppose that I have possibly gone a little overboard on this as I now have 15 full flag sheets and more partially finished so it could be that I end up with dozens of different clans to choose from by time I am finished.
