Yesterday was a tough day here in St Michaels. My lovely wife ( pictured to the back right) hosted her Women's Dental Students Association summer event at our place and I was "required" to play the dutiful host. Yes, It was a very difficuly duty that required me to muster up enough food to feed this ravenous horde. Don't believe what people say about young ladies eating like birds - it's just not true. Many fish, chickens and crabs were required to sustain these "dental scholarinas". OK, maybe it really wasn't all that tough....
I did manage to get a little work in on some mini's before the "Assault of the She-Wolves" and assembled the first box of Perry AWI plastic Continental Infantry and a general from the Fife and Drum line. I really like assembling plastics. Each Perry figure comes with 4 parts - a body, 2 arms and a hat choice (from 3 options). Not hard to assemble at all and you get a chance to inspect the figure closely to plan the painting. Next step will be to prime there lads.
Overall, I really like this box set. In additon to the regulars which I built this time there's an option to build out milita with different arms / rifle combinations. All-in-all a really nice set.
