Black Watch finished and a happy new year !

My finished Black Watch... A snapshot at least...
Finally I managed to get the last Highlanders finished. The basing is to be done but the painting is over. Thankfully! Although it was fun to paint those brave sons of Scotland a unit of 24 took it's time. Please excuse the poor picture I'll present a better one and some more information about the unit next week when I've got a little more time.

The Christmas week was rather busy. Fortunately my mother was able to leave the hospital -thanks for all your kind and caring comments! - and we had a merry Christmas Eve with my parents. Christmas Day we spent at my parents-in-law and on Boxing Day we had some members of our families at home. Three absolutely enjoyable just as much as exhausting days.

The time between Christmas and New Year belonged to the family as well. Since my wife and me hadn't to work for this week we were able to spent a lot of time with our daughter. By the way she is just learning how to handle paintbrushes and to chose the right colours for my redcoats.
Viktoria pondering about the right shade of red...

Well then... That's it with my last post of 2012.

I wish you all a happy new year and all the best for 2013. May you and your kin be blessed with luck and health and may all your aims be crowned with success!
