To be fair, 75% of the actual painted armies were already boxed up under the table; the main bit of work has been and remains to some extent in the 'office/studio/Dickensian garret' I share with my wife where the visible part of the infamous and ever restless creeping mountain of lead is located, along with about a zillion pots of paint, brushes, sharp and pointy tools, shade, dip, paint, glue, basing materials, more paint, uniform books and half a tree's worth of mdf bases, etc. etc. Oh the Horror!
I've been trying to preserve some off cuts of polystyrene foam insulation board from the clutches of Katherine, who is being very focussed when it comes to de-cluttering. A little handy sawing and knife work would transform these (treasured off cuts!) nicely into the glacis and covered way/ditch for my Vauban fortress. That, as they say, is the plan anyway. Thankfully, the removals men will be doing all the packing (NOT my soldiers, they are packed, but everything else), carrying and unloading at the other end. I will watch with interest as they work out how to safely pack and transport my two rather large 28mm frigates.
