Another highly irregular post, just to say hello, really and to acknowledge a lovely piece of kindness. Recently a box arrived in the post, all the way from California, and inside was this lovely painted 15mm Flames of War Stuka
It was a gift from Dai, the gamer who runs the blog The Lost, the Damned and the Stunted, which I greatly enjoy. In one of my fitful posts here, talking about my efforts to field an early WW2 Germany army for the Eastern Front, I was lamenting how the Germans fare against the Soviet KV1. What you need, Dai said to me, is some air support, and I just have a Stuka that is surplus to requirements. So he very kindly painted it, boxed it, and sent it all the way from California to Canada as a gift. And it is a nice little kit, done up at least as well if not better than I could have managed.
Thank you, my friend, for your lovely and thoughtful gift. As young Kinch has said, the Freemasonry of our hobby is a wonderful thing, and it makes me feel fortunate to have found this community.
I am hopeful too that this gift might nudge me out of a months long painting and minis gaming slump. Some of you who follow me on Twitter (@madpadre1) know the reasons why, and I’ll leave it at that for now. I wish I was visiting your blogs as they deserve, and I thank you of you are reading this post.
Anyway, thanks Dai, you’re a good chap, and I hope to get this fellow into the air soon to clear the road to Moscow.
