Whoops, missed these from January.



More Eclectica



von Tiddenheim ... sightseeing ...

von Tiddenheims expedition is on its way by air to the far east; their route takes them via the Middle East, India, Malaysia onto their final destination of Batavia in the Dutch East Indies where they will board the expedition's private yacht (which will be supported by a small feighter).

The flight out to the far east was going to be long; being cooped up in the plain for many hours. So von Tiddenheim had arranged stopovers along the way - with the opportunity of some sight seeing for himself and the expedition members

The first stopover in Athens, on the acropolis looking at the caryatids of the erechtheion....

then at their next stop in Egypt, a must see - the pyramids of Giza
they will soon be back on the plane....

A Cast of ....Lots.


Or what came off the Paint table for January, February and March.




Not just for Pulp.The Eo-hippus will appear in Paleo games on my other blogs, along with the slave girls and toy soldiers. The Vikings are of course destined for the Nothelm Chronicles.

Again, vikings for Nothelm, Harpies and Snowman for Eclectica and the Armoured cars For Somewhere in England.



Another Mix. Death, The snowman and bathing beauty are for Eclectica. The young Girls will appear through the ages along with The Creature from the Deep.
The Megalacaurus is for Paleo Games.

Have I lost all sense of Focus???

von Tiddenheim and the rest of the expedition members on their way to board the plane for the first leg of their journey ....

Desert - rocky outcrops ...

I coughed up some dosh and bought the Battlefield in the Box desert escarpments set. To fit them in with my table I covered the rear part with the felt I am using and put some sand scatter on to cover the edges at the top ....

Desert - the dune dilemma ....

I wanted to represent some sand dunes on the table. Eventually I settled on sticking some felt over a cardboard base with former ..

 I made up a short section of add-on backdrop to indicate desert in the distance; small sand-dunes in front
 and a view across the table ...
simple and dune-like  😁.  I have some felt left and may make a couple more....
