Thank you guys.

Happy New Year everyone. I had a rest from military modelling over Christmas and made a gem tree (which I'd been promising my wife for over a year!) I also made here a small flower garden for Christmas and have plans to do tutorials to local friends.

Here's the gem tree - made from twisted brass wire.

and the flower garden. The box is a from some 1/87 model cars we get for models at work. I've collected some so that my friends can take away the garden they've created.

I'll post you my workings this lunchtime after I've had supper....

I decided to make a copy of Wipers Times for my sections. There are many scans available on the net. I pasted them onto a Word document, which allowed me to reduce it to the 9mm high that I needed (11ins in real life.)

Here's one of my guys having a read. I was shocked looking at the photo that he's covered in dust! I have been putting off the figure paintingblush.

I meant to say thanks to Tim Marlow for the idea to do the Wipers Times. I'll be looking for a space on my dugout floor or nearby. It's pretty full already.

Darren has announced my latest base, which is a section of German trench. Nino is sculpting a couple of British trench raiders for it.

Hi Andy

The tree is very neat. The miniature garden is typical of your superb landscape stuff. The Times has come out well. Is it printed onto ordinary printer paper? Did you have to alter the printer settings to 'best quality' ?

John, Peter, Jim. It's good to have your company and thanks.

Jim. I used my company's laser jet printer with good quality paper. I didn't change the settings, but you can see it came out sharp.

The new base won't be released until about July, and I won't show any photos until Darren does, but its obviously larger than the 5x5 range.

Afternoon Andy - thought I had already commented on this, must have fallen asleep again before pushing the go button!

Nice bit of gardening again and the times looks great - little details like that lift things above the norm
