Here comes trouble

To coincide with the end of The Old World... Here is my son Tobias!  Ain't he a cutie?


This kit is awesome.  Though it takes two people nine months to assemble and you are not really supposed to paint it beyond a tiger or spiderman face once in a while.  Costs slightly more than your average Warhammer army, but it does not require gluing and the sprue is a single cut to remove.  There are no rules or instructions supplied, but it will keep us both entertained for decades.

This little blighter is all thanks to the wonder and miracle of hard, medical science.  Thanks to the hundreds if not thousands of hard working people behind IVF, dopplers, safe Caesarian section, rhesus negative anti-d, heart rate monitors and, most of all, to those who donated the 2.5 litres of blood required to save my wife's life.

Donated blood recently?  (I mean, not offered to the hobby desk boggart through the rite of slipped scalpels?). It would be lovely if you did.

Awwww look at that puddums!

I am a mum :)

  11. Congratulations to you and wifey, D. He's a real looker.

    So, how long before the painting lessons start for the little guy? :)

    Give my best to Kat. Sounds like she had the rough bit of it. I am very glad to hear she's recovering.
