I love them....I love every single last one of them.
Toy soldiers that is.
I can't get enough of lead (and resin and plastic) soldiers. Old ones and new ones. Beautiful ones and ugly ones. Fantasy ones, sci-fi ones and historical ones. I just cant stop collecting them.
The problem is I never paint them. Buying them is easy, cataloguing them is theraputic, but then I stick them in boxes in the loft. I want to paint them. I plan to paint them. The problem comes when I have to sit down and break out the paint brushes. Suddenly everything else seems so much more appealing. TV, computer games, reading, washing up, it's all more important than getting started on my latest painting project.
So inspired by some of my favourite wargaming blogs (I'll post more about those later), I've decided that my own blog is what will motivate me to actually get some models finished.
It may be a lifelong journey, or this may be the one and only post, but I hope you will join me for the ride.
