I would also like to thank Phil Porter from the Hamilton Immortals Miniature Wargaming Club for his help with herding the Waikato painters. We are now busy with our brushes, nearly a third of the way through painting a total of 320 troops. The last batch of miniatures received from the Perry twins includes some Anzacs in a variety of poses, our first chance to paint some kiwis and aussies. Among them are also wounded and fallen soldiers.

Coincidently, Phil Porter is the brother of Alistair Porter, a trombonist that has played in my band! You can hear him on Live at Hamilton Gardens, recorded back in 2006. A small world indeed!
God bless you and have a great week!
