My display case is almost finished and I am looking forward to finally putting a large amount of my painted lead on display. I should be able to do a few pics after we return from Holidays. This year I intend to keep a record of purchases and painted so i can keep track of the lead pile!

Priorities for 2010
28mm WW1 Australian light horse
20mm modern Australians and Afgans (for demo game)
28mm Pulp and terrain for Feburary
28mm A & A Sassanids
28mm Front Rank WSS
Rebase 28mm Normans
28mm FIW British and French
28mm French 7YW
28mm Napoleonic French Infantry and cavalry and rebase and touch up some more German States Infantry
20mm Germans reorg and paint a absolute ute full
20mm WW1 aircraft.

I hope to take some pics in the holidays of my new table that i am doing for the Pulp game.

Have a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Thanks Paul, but still not happy in my finish as I wanted to get some more stuff done, as I think I bought as least as much in unpainted lead:). Excited that I got my ECW done though a few here, I do plan on a photo shoot soonish
