New Year

Well as always it's been ages since I posted anything, the hassle of trying to take pictures is the main bit that has prevented me from doing more regular updates.

Since the last update I've done a bundle of more things. I finished off those Orcs for use in Frostgrave and I've got enough others from the likes of Mordheim and the rest of an extensive fantasy collection to do me many more warbands.

My Clan patrol for Diasho has been finished off and I'll get round to doing my other Buntai sometime this year.

Got some 10mm Finns from the visit to Leeds and in trying an experiment I've based up and painted enough to try and use in Chain of Command with each base being a team.  I'll pick up some Russians at Carronade and once they're done we'll see how it works out in that scale.

My Brother in law has picked up a copy of the 7TV rules and a bundle of Dr Who figures from (Black tree?) So I've been painting them up, 3 Doctors and 5 companions done so far as well as the Ghostbusters for him from Crooked dice.  Another friend (Who doesn't wargame had spotted 7TV at Leeds and said, "There's a wargame I could get into." So we have and I painted her up the SHIVA set for her christmas.

My other stuff includes painting/tidying up 2 Epic armies, space wolves which was mostly tidying and unifying the schemes  to finish it off. The other was a Chaos force, mostly from scratch so that now gives me 3 fully done Epic forces to use.

My Napoleonics for Sharp Practice continues to be a slow burner, with 2 British units finished and 1 French Unit half way there.

I've also been doing some small modelling projects, including a scratchbuilt Sentry box and trying something out with how to texture a building. I have a load of foamcore which I had made a church with ages ago, but never got round to finishing because I couldn't make up my mind how to do the brick work until an experiment paid off. Hobby craft do A4 Sheets of foam, so I made a small ruined corner of a building and covered it with the foam, and then once everything was dry I etched into it with an old stylus to create the bricks. I like the end result so sometime this year that church will actually get finished.

Looking forward to this year,
Finish that Buntai,
Get the 10mm Russians and get them done for CoC as well. The balance of the models for these forces will just be based up without a dice marker for BKC.
Make 10mm Trenches, gun emplacements etc for our little campaign.
28mm Germans, I got a squad for christmas from the inlaws, so I'll get them done and probably pick up enough to finish off a platoon for CoC.
Continue with Napoleonics.
Blood Eagle comes out and I want to pick up a few more personality type vikings as most of mine so far are from the Gripping Beast Plastic boxes so having a couple of extra stand out models would be good.
I'd still like to get more Victorian period models for use in IHMN but we'll see how that goes, it's not a priority.
