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.
Lovely looking new houses.The thatching looks excellent.ReplyDelete
The old ones I like as well..:-D
Sounds like madness and nice buildings sir.....ReplyDelete
The old ones certainly gave me good service for many years.
What madness? No new armies?ReplyDelete
That's just me trying to be restrained.
Watch this blog, by the summer (assuming I've improved my employment situation) I'll probably be rabbiting on about 'my new WW2 Russians' or something when I should've spent the money on buildings.
Really like your work on the buildings James. Well done.ReplyDelete
You did a great job on the painting, very efficient!ReplyDelete
Lovely bargains and a real steal of a price. Deus vult, I'll shop the Hot Lead bring and buy this year.ReplyDelete
Your resolutions are admirable. Very similar to my own - top of my list: No Zombies. No Napoleonics. And definitely No Zombie Napoleonics, though zombie Old Guard grenadiers would be totally cool.
Zombies have never really tempted me at all. The occassional game with Peter's Zombie set up is enough.ReplyDelete
I dunno Wierd Napoleonic Wars sounds just kinda... :S
