Currently on my painting table are 12 Gripping Beast 28mm civilian figures, which I bought recently following a recommendation from Hugh/Colgar6. He pointed out that the school master set of 4 figures included a suitable nurse I may be interested in. Having looked at her, she is very close to what I was after for my St. Trinian's school nurse, or Matron, as she is called. The other three, a teacher and two posh schoolboys, will come from a rival boys' school. The other two sets I got were the Squire and his family (wife, daughter and maid) and a sci-fi family (husband, wife, son and daughter). I have plans for all of them and I hope to review them before the end of April. I have made three more St. Trinian's schoolgirls by converting three of the Wargames Factory plastic female survivors. I made a first former with a tennis racket, Andrea the Emo with a hockey stick and Chloe the Posh Totty with some sticks of dynamite. The first former was simple conversion but the two older girls were much more complex conversions, involving a lot of work. A review will appear just as soon as I paint them.
I have another secret project on the go, that involves Team Vampifan but it is far too early to give away any more details. I'll tell you more about it in my next Monthly Musings.
I have only just started reading The Tale of the Vampire Bride by Rhiannon Frater, one of my favourite authors. The book is about 600 pages long and as soon as I finish it I'll be reading the first sequel, The Vengeance of the Vampire Bride. The second sequel, The Lament of the Vampire Bride is on my shopping list. These will keep me very happy for the rest of April.
I am still making my Stoelzel's Structures' Brummie's Burgers fast food restaurant. Work has slowed down on it because I am making lots of furniture items to add indoors, and they are always fiddly to make and time-consuming. Still, at least progress is being made.
Look out for some very cool figure reviews next month, including a two-parter on the best zombie apocalypse figures currently on the market. The best, you say? Who can they be by? Keep on reading!
Finally, today is Mothers' Day, so a big thank you from me to mums everywhere. God bless them!
