  2. While I come to your site for the cool miniatures John, I love seeing the beautiful pictures of England you post. That bluebell wood is gorgeous! Living in Southern California with its endless vistas of asphalt and desert makes me appreciate what you see and experience even more.

    And I may need to model those woods for 40K...

    I used to give visiting lectures at Riverside. I ended up dreaming about rolling green hills.

    PS Bluebells are the only plant, i think, unique to the British Isles. They have colonised to coast of nearbye France. They are regarded as a weed, traditionally.

  8. We had a civil war? In 1938? That'll be bloody Spode and his Black-shorts...but didn't he 'get his' with the cow creamer? Or was that another war!

    Love the paint scheme on the Austin.
