Today I went upstairs and glued all the painted figures I already have done for the diorama on the bases. The good thing is this is cheering me up as I see it is going forward. The other side is I see all these uncomplete units and know there is much more work to do....
When my son was old enough to get his own room I had to leave him my hobbyroom. Hobbyfriends who know me have seen all the stuff stored away under the roof, in the cellar and in a small room where I had to store all my books in boxes. Not even a whole room, but just always parts or corners of them - a real shame....
Here are the photo from under the roof, first a view through the door where I sorted all the bases and glued the units on them.
Mysore troops ready to advance. In 1783 these guys usually had a white uniform. Three years later Tippuh introduced the tiger shaped purple uniform. So these guys are good for Seringapatam, but not for Cuddalore. On the other hand I like the painting.
And just to show you with which little space I have to deal here are some photos from my upper rooms.
Half a look at my archive. Beside collecting 1/72 figures, "Uniformology" is my favourite hobby. All these binders are sorted in a special system which I took over from my friend Alfred Umhey who brought me into this hobby over 15 years ago.
and filled it up with painted figures too.
I guess you can imagine that I hope my little ones are growing up soon that I can chase them out of "my" room and give them the appartement under the roof? :-)))
