Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts, words and sympathies in my dark hour of need since the calamitous frosting of my basilisk/griffon combo, 'Ubique'. Your suggestions and comiserations have been filling me with hope. Thank you all!
Just to remind you (and me), here's what Ubique did look like:
And here are the pics of Ubique now, along with some other stuff I'll discuss below (simply because it was on my desk):
Note, incidentally, that the griffon mortar component did not frost - I suspect the frosting was due in part to the day's temperature, and as the mortar was metal it was already colder than the plastic components. (Ought I to have refrigerated the blasted thing first?!)
You'll note the following things surrounding my frosted vehicle, most of which were the result of me unearthing my box marked "cavalry":
- My part-converted (and tactically abandoned) Cadian rough riders;
- My almost finished and slightly transport-damaged WFB Empire knights (with converted Warrior Priest);
- My part-converted Arbites on bikes. These I got from an eBay win, and they're a great idea - especially in the wake of the recent BoLS Arbites codex!
- A corgi sketch by Kate.
Closer pics of the first three of these are below:
