And to get the Charge-esque juices flowing, here are a couple of shots from the archives featuring Stadden figures in the main.

I must admit to have been otherwise engaged these past few months, and the hobby has taken second place (well, in truth it has been well down the pecking order, not even qualifying for Europe to stretch a football analogy). However, I enjoyed a short visit to the Falkirk show last weekend, and caught up with a few old pals, and I've even had the paint brushes out this week, doing this n that... not amounting to too much yet, but it's a start.
The funny thing is, the hobby is like a comfortable pair of slippers that you can easily fit snuggly back into, even after considerable distractions. It's good to be back. But don't hold your breath waiting for excessive blogging. It will remain sporadic I'm afraid. But then... it is a hobby, after all.
All the best
