Accompanying this blog’s first ever post are pictures of a very old and very unrealistic-looking hill that I made way back in April 2007. Unrealistic because I chose to glue together a stack of thin foam boards, one on top the other, which gave the piece step slopes and thus a sense of artificiality. The palm trees are paper ones sold by Siam Marketing at Central World; I have since discarded them in favour of shiny plastic ones available from Jatujak’s many aquarium stores.
The Japanese pictured above are from Sgt. Majors, while the Punjabs seen patrolling below are from Stonewall Figures. The latter are excellent little figures, being Paul Barnshaw sculpts, but are marred by indistinct looking sticks that are supposed to be, but look nothing like, .303 Enfields.
As I currently do not have my camera with me (the joys of having two homes!) this weekend’s posts will only feature old photos that should be familiar to visitors of the Guild. Hopefully I will manage to be consistent, and able to post on a weekly basis.
