Saturday marks the beginining of Anibal Invictus' family summer break, and as usual in August every year, we leave this hot Madrid town and head to the mountains. I'll have limited wifi availabilkity so it is unlikely that you'll see any new posts in this blog until late in the month.
I eagerly look forward to have a period of real relax and above all to disconnect from the world around. The term has not been easy for this family (although no health problems, thanks God) with an unexpected employment problem in Christmas time; luckily I could find another job in record time, although in a radically different professional environment (farewell big company, hello partner in what it is now my own small business...) and withouth the time to get adapted to the frenzy itr brings... never felt soooo exhausted.
Now, I take a lot projects in my suitcase. I'm aware that I will not be able to accomplish all, but I will have enough choice to jump around as I fancy
- First, with Dux Britanniarum already out, in addition to get familiarised with the rules, señor Dalauppror has planted a seed of desire to paint the Romano British Army brought from London at the time of my visit to Salute last April.
- Señor Thanos and his most excellent Minatures & Terrain blog, has also feed my appetite to undertake a couple of projects explained in detail in these tutorials: explosion markers and the Normandy Houses.
- Of course I will continue expanding my Vietnam US army, including some new terrain features that I have in mind
- And last but not least, I may try this year to emulate Sidney Roundwood's unsurpaassed WWI scenery materials, starting with some small piece and perhaps planning to develop my own "dead marshes" terrains (a real challenge for my limited scenery-making abilities)... and just today he came with a new idea that flamed my heart with desire...I cannot resist to at least attempt it.
Farewell, my fellow readers. Looking to contact again in 3 weeks time. For those also leaving over the enxt 3 weeks, wish you amost relaxing time wherever you willñ be heading.
