Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)

And the race is on! - Retail therapy for the painter/gamer

Seems like I have spent way to much money lately on my hobby. Its to the point where I can't seem to remember what I ordered and from whom it was ordered from. So this post is going to serve a few purposes this month. First to remind me that I do really have stuff coming and to be patient, two to not spend anymore money (this month) and third to sort of track how long things take to get to me.

So currently on order (oldest first)

Hopefully, I'll remember to come in and update this stuff. Sometimes writing it down in some form or another is what it takes to actually remember what the heck I'm doing. It should also insure that I don't duplicate an order.

And Sunday was somewhat productive. I have the majority of the Perry Miniature Normans finished. I just have 9 Cavalry to go and all the filing will be done. They still need to be buffed with steel wool though, at least that doesn't take as long as doesn't leave gashes in the fingers.

Reduced this stack to just three of the larger boxes.
