I had an email earlier in the week from the company I am buying my Afrika Korps 6mm stuff from. I won't name them just yet because my feelings on the issue are a little undecided at the moment, but it goes without saying I would have liked to have had my figures by now. I'm glad the company concerned have communicated their stock problem to me although I do feel they could have done so a bit quicker (seven days after I placed the order online). Plus their website was showing stock available when it clearly wasn't so they have some issues they need to resolve there.

A lot is now riding on how long I actually have to wait, the accuracy of the order when it arrives and of course the condition of the models I receive. I'm being very cautious about all this because I am conscious of the fact that I am breaking into a new scale and pretty much everything is a learning curve at the moment.
So while I sit, wait and metaphorically twiddle-my-thumbs I'm trying to keep busy. I've got a veritable production line for desert bases going on at the moment. Once I have painted my first batch of tanks they can simply be glue onto the prepped bases, given a finishing spray of varnish and they'll be good to go. Of course I need the models to arrive before any of this can happen. Sigh...You'd think after all these years of painting and gaming I would be better at this patience malarkey.
