Yes, indeed - any rumours of my demise are exaggerated. Sorry 'bout that   ;)

We've moved house - crazy, crazy stuff - got confirmation of completion with 2 days notice so it was totally manic...vastly overrated experience if you ask me.

Anyway, it means that we're now living in the middle of nowhere - in a holiday cottage on Exmoor, which is beautiful but it does mean that I have no landline, mobile signal or internet which is leaving me disconnected. It was great for the first week (last week) but this week I've been twitching a bit...and work is bonkers at the moment so I haven't even been able to get on here courtesy of my employers.

So - expect sporadic posting from me for the next 2-3 months...and try to behave, natch.  :D

And very glad I am to hear it too! Thought the Totty thread had been somewhat neglected of late :D

Take care of yourself buddy and see you 'back in the bin*' very soon.

Good to hear everything got sorted out OK!  We'll hold the fort until you get some interwebs sorted, I'll do some Totty research tonight.

Actually, I've just Google'd 'Naked on the Moors' and it didn't come back with anything... useful, shall we say...

Nice to see you back Mr Harwood.

The big news is that there's still no Centurion, but I think Pendraken could be described as "dilated".

15mm is dead. It just doesn't know it yet.

Welcome back Nik !
Hope things get back on a much more even keel asap.

Cheers - Phil.

Hi Nik

Glad the move went ok.  Think of all the painting you can do without the distraction of the forum.   Thats with a roller and bucket of emulsion though  ;D

Nik - a-ah - painter of the universe
Flash - a-ah - he'll paint every one of us
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Nik - a-ah - he's a miracle
Nik - a-ah - king of a bit of Somerset

Paints faster than everyone of us
Paintes better than everyone of us
He'll buy a lot of figures
Every man, every cannon
Every horse – painted in a flash

Nik - a-ah
Nik - a-ah - he'll save everyone of us

Just a man
With a lot of 10 mil
He knows nothing but the lead
But he can never stop
Has a 15 – nought brush
for all their eyes
Oh oh - oh oh
Nik
I have neither the time or the crayons to explain why you are wrong.

Very good ! ;D ;D
Don't think he's likely to be back this weekend.
Sounds like the weather's going to be as awful for him as it's destined to be here.....Lovely. :( :( :( :(

Like it lots  :D

Just grabbing some internet whilst the kids play in one of those mad places with slides etc...so particularly appropriate to be feeding the Totty thread from here...

Phil's right though - major storm on way which will cause chaos on higher ground (like the top of Exmoor where I am) & probably take the present Mrs H out of action for the next 48 hours as she'll be coordinating the response from Highways gangs & tree chaps clearing the debris etc.

So, I see a few drinks, some DVDs and some painting...not got any 10mm prepped at the moment that aren't in storage, but those 28mm WW2 might get some paint lobbed at  them later  8)

Sometimes I wonder - why is that frisbee geting bigger - and then it hits me!

Good luck Nik !
Just preparing to batten down the hatches here.
Hopefully it won't be half as bad as the media are suggesting...But you never know, do you ? :-SS :-SS
Cheers - Phil.

Still only forecasting 25mph here, although the wind is picking up. Meant to peak in the early hours of the morning.

Appears as though the real 'poop' is going to be South of us now.....Whereas before, we were supposed to be bang in the middle of it.
Fingers crossed...and good luck to those that get the worst.
Cheers - Phil.
