Just when you think you can't possibly discover yet another past life the Universe says, "Oh yes you can!" The evidence has lain forgotten in the loft buried amongst a myriad of treasures for years. Over the next few weeks I shall resurrect that said evidence in a process that will be both definite and cathartic. As with all my discoveries, my subconscious came tapping like Poe's raven a couple of weeks ago, early April, 2015. It took the form of an urge to convert some old 54mm Britains Toy Soldiers into Imperial German Landsknechts 1500 to 1525AD. I have always wanted to create some since first seeing the 70mm Preiser Elasolin ones for sale in Deventer, Holland on a trip one Saturday whilst living in Germany working for the M.O.D as a Physics teacher. The process of material creation focuses the mind like a laser beam and suddenly a dusty corner of my subconscious burst into light as I received a euphoric Archimedean ah hah, moment!!! Of course in retrospect it is all so self-evident once one has seen the light! Bloody obvious in fact!!! So much so that one cannot believe that I hadn't discovered it before!!!
