Yes and not in wargames shops.
In the envelope all the way from China is a pack of "Fimo". I have not seen Fimo in the UK for a dozen or more years. So for the price of £3.49 including postage I ordered it from China (Via eBay). For those not in the know Fimo was a clay that you fired in the oven. Like "Das" but finer smoother and with a more plastic quality. I am not at all worried about the colour and I am sure it is cheaper to import it from China than to try to source it locally. I am sure to show my "attempts" with this in the future so get set for disaster!
Additionally I acquired a grass matt from a kitchen shop. This is for rough ground in my pacific war games. Again the princely sum of £3 and as it is 10 inches wide a single pack should be more than enouh to represent rough jungle in the pacific. If it had been 12 inches wide it would have been better but what does 2 inches matter in a game of PBI where everything is measured on a grid!
In the wargame shop I had an interesting chat with a guy on how to paint figures as he is now in the process of writing a book on the Subject.
This Batch of Burpas are now finished and the Photos sent to Matt so he can suggest any changes he might want to make. Assuming no changes. (there usually is not) I will show them on Saturday.
best wishes Clint
