On the workbench: September

First up at the moment is my second Henschel Hs-126.  I bought a box containing both the Airfix and Matchbox kits about ten years ago at a model engineering show.  This is the Matchbox one:

When finished it's going to see service as air support for the Andreivian Turks in the big Crisis Point: Andreivia game.  It has one or two special features which will become apparent later.

Also in production at the moment is this Perry Miniatures plastic man-at-arms.

He's nearly finished and will be joining an Impetus unit representing Edward IV and his immediate household (hence the gold trimming on his arms and armour).  Don't yet know if he will represent Edward himself.

Finally, we have the desert gold mine that came as the souvenir from last year's Berkeley HOTT tournament.  With this year's Berkeley coming up next weekend, it seemed appropriate to get it finished and pictured now.

Hi Richard

Loving the Gold Mine model. Look forward to seeing the modifications you have planned for the Henschel.

I've now finished the man-at-arms. I thought I'd try some silver highlights on the armour. I'm quite pleased with the effect but the problem is he now looks noticeably better than my other plate-armoured figures so I may have to highlight all of them!
