Then there is my academic artist sister who has come to my rescue as I could never find any Gesso when I've visited art supply shops. Now I can finally get to try it as an undercoating medium. Thanks sis!
Finally, there is my sister's clearly bonkers partner, who decided he'd found the perfect present for someone into toy soldiers.
This door stop, clearly Airfix-inspired(!), weighs a ton, stands a foot high and comes from a company called Suck UK Ltd. Magic. Well we all like gag gifts from time to time don't we?! :)
Now, I know someone into 54mm WW2 and that's pretty big stuff, but I'm thinking I'd quite like to see a game using a bunch of these!
