Update 21 April 2014

While I spent this Easter weekend relaxing, sorry didn't do anything exciting, it gave me time to work on my miniatures. I sat down to scratch build some APC's for my Retained Knight Regiment. I've started to organise my miniatures in Lances à la Ion Age, so I have made three so far, enough for one Lance of Retained Knights

Painting Update 13 April 2014

Hi all.

The last few months haven't seem much hobby time for me, but I am managing to get through my little lead mountain and not far from finishing, as much as you ever finish, my Retained Army.

Below is a picture of the whole army so far, followed by pictures of the individual units. Only a unit of Desteria Knights and a Duxis MkIIID 'Anti-Infantry' Battlesuit are left unpainted.

Warning: Image intensive post.

Orford Castle.

Orford Keep.

Today, my wife and I took a trip to Orford Castle. Orford is a village not too far from us in Suffolk, England. Only the keep remains intact on this site, which was built between 1165 and 1173 by Henry II of England to consolidate royal power in the region.
