It's been a busy couple of weeks. The move, an ER trip (our daughter managed to break her arm two days before we moved), work starting up, and, oh, yeah, a hurricane (Dorian), have come and gone, and despite everything, we seem to be okay. Move went as well as we could hope, kiddo's arm seems to be healing, work is all good, and miracle of miracles, we seem to have weathered a category 2 hurricane that caused untold destruction and chaos with no damage. Someone has been looking out for us.
|Minis are almost unpacked|
|Slowly getting there|
On top of it all, my Carthaginians arrived. Despite my last minute waffling, I ended up opting for Hannibal's lads after all. A major factor ended up being that I already have a successor army in 15mm (Antigonus). While I can manage having the same period in two scales, the same army was too much ;) I ordered a box of the Victrix Warriors of Carthage from "Nanny Ogg" online, which turns out to be a subsidiary of Caliver books, and the figures arrived within the week. Nice service from the UK! I've put a few sample figs together, and am part way through painting the first ones, so they seem to have grabbed my attention.
|Finally have room to put my books by my painting station|
|Still lots of boxes to sort out.|
We're at the stage of unpacking where critical stuff is all set up, but we're still tripping over boxes. Hopefully we'll clear some space out later this week once garbage / recycling gets picked up (figuring out the draconian rules of which took a little while), and by next week I'll be patiently enduring the "no, the other left" stage of picture hanging and final details. This weekend was a bit of a write-off between getting ready for the hurricane, sitting anxiously through the hurricane, and then wandering around in mild disbelief that we got through the hurricane, but normality will soon assert itself I'm sure.
