The Weekly Update - Sunday, November 19th, 2016 - Short Takes

The trireme shows her colors

Torchbearers, with removable torches

No long post today, and comments replied to later; the cold I've been nursing for the past two weeks has come back with a vengance, and I've had to cancel all my appointments for the weekend and stay home in bed with fever and chills. More, when I feel better, and in the meantime a couple of photos of things that did get done...


  1. Get well soon! Amazing trireme and great torchbearers!

    1. Thank you! Wound up going into the ER last night, as I still had a bad headache from Friday as well as the other symptoms. Long night, but doing much, much better today. Just resting up and taking it easy.

      Glad you like the trireme. I thought she turned out very well, and she looks good with either two or three banks of oars. took the color scheme from 'Olympias', as I figured that she was a good example.

      The torachbearers were a quick fifteen minute project. using the tiny magnets and the Litko 'flames'. We'd never had anything like this, back in the day, sooo... :)

    1. Thank you! I am trying to. Had a four-day weekend, and will have another coming up, so plenty of time to rest and recover.

      Glad you like her! Simple decor, but a lean and deadly-looking ship if you asked me...
