Da da da......He's back?? & Kirke's Lambs


As you may now all be aware, the Mad Irishman Fran is back. I spoke to the old git yesterday, he said he'd be online in around a week, but the lying git is back now!!! I'm sure over the coming weeks he'll explain his near 9 month absence from Blogland, the tit!
You really could write a film about his exploits!
Anyway, he said he's been going crazy with no internet these past months, but at least he's hit the brush bigtime, (unlike myself!) painting nearly all his leadpile, including the lovely placard holders above!!! ggggrrrr!
The Arse!


Lastly Loki, posted this pic on Facebook, he's painting up these Warfare Miniatures figures  and others representing Kirk's Lambs & the Tangiers Horse for some lucky sod's Donnybrook excursion???


Yep.....Me!

  1. Kirke's Lambs yes I am aware of them. I have mentioned a "LIving history" group in the Medway area which portrayed them but I don't think they ever got more than 5 members and have since folded.
    I am Glad "His Huge wibbly-wobblyness!" is back

  2. Yes, he's back, so you'll have to (mis)behave yourself (more) now :)

    He's done a good job on those protestors, but I think he should have waited until the Challenge to do them...

    Nice figs from Loki :)

  4. Is that the full force you'll be using for Donnybrook, Ray? 18 figures sounds like my type of game!

    2. Thanks for the info, Loki.
      50+ (20+ more like) is way beyond me, so I'll probably stick to naval boats.
      Lovely painting, mind :)

    3. It is the largest Donnybrook army I could muster, you don't need that many to have a game....its just me and my megalomania!!

  21. It is indeed very nice to have Fran back! I think things were getting to civil on the blogs and we need a bit of anarchy back.
