Hi,
If you mean the link in the signature - that seems to be working at present (13 May, 11:15 BST). I don't have any control over the accessibility of the site as I rent the web space from a third party. Usually it is fine. Sorry.


(A little later...) I have edited my sig and put "www." in front of the URL. It shouldn't make any difference, but you never know with computers...

I need a bit of help here.
I decided to name my locos after witches - but of course there are a few exceptions.
I've got
GYTHA, HILTA, ESKARINA, ESME, TIFFANY, LILY, ALISS, SYBIL

SHEPTON (This loco is of the type known as "Mallet" - after the engineer who designed them so it had to be named "Shepton (Mallet)" - a small town in Somerset)

SADIE and DOTSIE
Dotise and Sadie are diesel engines and aren't usually seen on the layout, so I decided I could get away not using witches names for them.

So... I'm running out of witches. Any suggestions would be welcome for my next batch of transfers. OK I admit to MAGRAT, but she has twice not printed well and the results were unusable (some trans-dimensional influence there?) Also I know SYBIL isn't a witch - but it's a nice name. Do you think I can get away with ANGUA for a loco?

Well technically Eskarina isn't a witch, Sybil isn't a witch - although Lady Sybil would be a great name. There's Lettice (Earwig), Hilta (Goatherder) - what about Petulia? :D

Apologies for resurrecting this thread, but some advice would be appreciated.
I have primed the werewolf and "golem" figures for Angst.
What sort of colours/shades would be good for Angua - and for a golem? I'm thinking of perhaps dirty terracotta for the golem, but Angua? Blond? - What sort of blond? and shadings.

I'll see about posting photos of the figures in undercoat..

(PS I think the golem will need a Post Office bag!)

I think she's described as "ash blonde" both as a human and a wolf.

Angua is, on first appearance, a well-developed young lady with a mass of ash-blonde hair, and an annoying habit of looking at one's neck. She is also good at her job, even if being a watchman is an unusual occupation for a lady.

When it is full moon, she is a pedigree Ramtop wolfhound with an ash-blonde mane round her shoulders.

Isn't it just painted with the royal blue and gold uniform?

The book isn't clear on how they were painted

‘Thank you, gentlemen,’ said Moist. And now all that remains’ - he nodded to Stanley, who held up two big tins of royal blue paint - ‘is their uniform.’
By general agreement Anghammarad was given the unique rank of Extremely Senior Postman. It seemed . . . fair.
Half an hour later, still tacky to the touch, each one accompanied by a human postman, the golems took to the streets. Moist watched heads turn. The afternoon sunlight glinted off royal blue and Stanley, gods bless him, had found a small pot of gold paint too. Frankly, the golems were impressive. They gleamed.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Here is Angua:

(The camera is cruel... the figure is only about 12mm long...)

And the golem:

I have put a blue patch on the front and back for starters; I didn't like the idea of painting it wholly royal blue. Is it worth trying for some Post Office logo? Perhaps on his satchel...
