And if I want a break from my 15mm SYW or WW2 there's lots of lovely 28mm Napoleonics and Romans waiting for me.
Besides, I need to put my efforts into terrain.
Here's my old 25mm Medieval village, made over 20 years ago:
But on the New Year's weekend I painted up these resin buildings which I picked up for $20 at the Hotlead Bring and Buy. I had them black undercoated and then put them in a box and never got back to them for ages:
|Big house back|
|Big house front|
|Old barn and cottage|
The thatching was a challenge to paint, but I'm pleased with how it came out.
|Some of my Medieval troops check out the new accommodations.|
Reading the newest edition of I Ain't Been Shot, Mum! and then playing with Lorenzo on the weekend also inspired me to push ahead on a second rifle platoon for my Fallschirmjaeger. They're nearing completion and will bring that army up to three platoons (2 rifle, 1 MMG) which will fit into most of the starter scenarios in the rules and give them enough strength to take the offensive once in a while.
