What is worrying, is that I recognise that situation.

The only difference being that my Devil looks looks Anne Hathaway and stands proudly in a Centurion Tank turret.

My angel is prone, behind a Boys AT rifle. Poor bloke's face is in the dirt so I can't hear a word he's saying. 



Anne Hathaway besides being very attractive is a very nice lady .  My nephews wife (niece-in-law??) was in the film Les Miserables with her. My niece-in-law was suffering from morning sickness and she said that Anne Hathaway was always looking after her and getting her bottles of water.

The devil will always win....willpower only lasts so long...

I've been going through much a similar process with the Greeks and Romans and pretty much whole ancients range  I don't want to see

And then, of course, there's the Japanese range that'll be out soon too...
Any year now....

I go through the same process every week  Cry
spend a week debating to myself, then decide to buy (could of saved the debate time as I always end up buying).
then it starts all over again (I need to stop A. reading books, magazines wargames blogs. B. going into shops C. going out generally)  Grin

Last/this week started reading Last of the Mohicans. looked on Pendraken French Indian Wars, Ooh nice shiney but no!  Shocked
then Leon posted the painted pictures up !!!! my resolve crumbled faster than a sand wall on Redcar Beach  Cool
one order for said Indians now on its way !!!!!!

I'm trying to be good and not start any new projects until I get at least one of my current ones to a state of playability.

Unfortunately I have five or six strong contenders pulling at me to start them or suggesting they're not really a new project, just a (very tenuous) expansion of another one. By a few centuries.

Most of my projects are in a state of playability, I just find more things to add to them.

I havev been trying for the last couple of years to actually fiish projects so I don't bother looking at expanding, but it does not work very well

I wasn't aware that finishing a project was something you could actually do? Certainly once I get any of my current ones to a state of playability I already have 2 or 3 expansion phases planned, but that's not a new project so that's fine!

I do have two that I might, possibly, be able to one day consider "finished" but I suspect I'll find an expansion point to them at some point down the line.

But definitely want to at least try and get one or two more projects over the line to give me a bit of playing diversity.

I don't think I've ever "Finished" a project  Shocked
but in my defense its all this damn working away  Cool
I think I nearly finished my 6mm Cold War Commander Soviet tank Division (for the one of the Cold War Commanders games)
set just outside Hannover but then got myself sent back to Germany to work.
current projects:
6mm Star wars (in various stages of build)
10mm Bush wars (undercoated)
10mm French Indian wars (in post)
I wont even list my "long term" projects

See it was all just a bluff, Orcs is a good gamer and isn't finishing anything, he is just fishing for more things to add...

Very nice indeed. I do wonder about the labels though, as I presume the 'EL' stands for 'Elephant' and it would be hard to mistake these for anything else Wink Cheesy.
Have you never been tricked by the "Camel disguised as elephant" trick.
Very convincing, I fall for it every time.

Heresy!!

Everybody knows that God's own anti-tank weapon is the P.I.A.T.
