Right so, since the last update I have moved half the length of England and now am living in the seaside town of Broadstairs in Kent. It's not bad. We are yet to get the internet connected, however there are a bunch of networks that we can connect to and use (and more are legally done!). I still lack most of my stuff, that arrives a week on saturday, so no painting just yet. However, I have assembled a number of dwarfs, namely - 16 warriors with hand weapons, 16 thunderers and a cannon (all kindly donated by PapaJJ in a very gentlemanly give away he had on his blog). Some of these have been very slightly converted. Like the warriors all have axes - started off accidentally but looks good - some of which are converted from great weapons and some small changes to the command and such. The thunderers are just a normal unit, much like the cannon. So I have stuff to paint when it all arrives.
I also went to the local gaming group, just to see what it was like. It's small, but there seem to be a nice bunch there. Hopefully I can make some friends with these guys and get some actual gaming done! In addition to this, I am trying to add or write my dwarf fluff to give it character. So far it is not that good, but I am just trying to get down the basic structure and build a better one on top of that.
