Better service means paying for something you already get for nothing.

Since August 2000, Beth and I have maintained a small website dedicated to our wargaming hobby but recently my ISP decided that it will no longer provide the free websites it had been providing for it's customers. Apparently the need to upgrade infrastructure and provide a better service means that the customer should pay for something the customer already gets for nothing or at least that's the impression I'm left with.

So Now Beth and I are in the process of migrating our website to 'Google Sites'. The site can be found here and as with all such moves it is inevitable that there will be some renovation involved but hopefully that won't take too long.

On The Workbench - 05 July 2009

Finally I managed to break through the choke point that a 15mm 'Flames Of War' late war British infantry platoon had become and completed them. In truth these shouldn't have been difficult miniatures to complete and I certainly didn't attempt to wash or high them, this was a basic get the colours in the right place, over a black undercoat and varnish to finish. They sat on my bench for some months now defying all attempts at completion and no matter how I attempted to motivate myself I found my attention wandering to other distractions.

But now they are finished and I've already almost completed the next project, a mortar platoon to accompany the recalcitrant infantry.
