moif world update

Only a few weeks left before our second daughter is born, and things are running slow but steady. Mette is as big as its possible to get now and eager to get it over with and I can't say I blame her. It looks very uncomfortable when she has to get in and out of bed, or pick something up off the floor.

In other news, being unemployed again isn't so bad but the economic situation is starting to look desperate. I may have just saved myself though as on Wednesday Goeg, Mette and I attended a meeting with a publisher and she expressed a desire to publish a series of children's colouring books, illustrated by yours truly. If the deal works out, then its potentially good enough to keep me employed for a year. Nothing has been officially signed yet though, Fingers crossed.

The Eighty Years War project is moving slowly. I've ordered another batch of figures from Perry and they should arrive within the next week. We've still not got a set of rules but we may go for 'Field of Glory; Rennaisance'. I still have no idea which colours to paint Nederlanders of the Dutch Rebellion, and I can't find any info on the net. I'm leaning towards earth tones and shades of brown with lots of orange sashes, feathers and flags as I gather the Dutch weren't all that organised into regular armies during the early days.

Some great news there.

Earth shades for the Dutch sounds good and especially if they show off the nice orange colour they are famous for.

Congrats on the coloring book opportunity. I hope it turns out well!

Best of luck on the birth of your daughter!

LOL. Yes I do. I envy you those first few golden years. Enjoy them whilst they last because they really are special.
