All Quiet on the Pastime Front

I admit it. There really hasn’t been much progress over the past couple of weeks with my lancers. Partly this has been due to the impact of domestic issues. My father suffered a minor stroke and, although it was thankfully minor and he’s recovering well, I seem to have lost my mojo somewhat since then. Bigger issues like family health seem to place more trivial things such as modelling soldiers into perspective.

I have, nonetheless, been able to basecoat most of the horses and paint / glue the lances. So, here’s a very quick view of some of those lancers with lances. I should point out that they do still need a little work.

There’s a flag bearer that’s still awaiting work on his flag. Hopefully, I’ll be able to find some time and get into gear soon. In the meantime, I’m being careful with those lances, they are all so delicate that I’ll be surprised if I don’t break some before completion!
