Mutton Chop BEF Command (Pack BEF9)

Things have not been as bad at work as I feared. I've been able to dabble with the paint over the past couple of weeks and complete the other three figures from the Mutton Chop BEF Command Pack. Deep joy!

I've just noticed the varnish bloom around the Officer's holster and binocular case. Will rectify.

Mutton Chop WW1 British Stretcher Bearer

I've had the latest Mutton Chop releases in the queue since they came out some weeks ago. Having returned from the Salient last month I've been desperate to start them but other painting work has had to take priority. I now enter June, the annual fallow period when I put the brushes down for a month as the next four or five weeks are pretty grim at work and time to paint will be very short and energy to paint quite low. So I don't bother.... but before I took the annual break I had to paint just one Tommy! Here he is, the Stretcher Bearer from pack BEF9. See you all again in July!
