This week has been spent doing a couple of things. First up, I set up a Facebook account for my blog. You can click the link on the right in order to follow me there, where I am trying to give a few more regular updates, etc.
I also continued to work on my 144 RAC Sherman I's and some of my Polish Sherman V's.
I mixed some 'Magic Wash' up. Seems to be working ok, but needs to be mixed with ink before adding to the mini's as I've not got the shade right yet.
And lastly, I played 2 games! One was even Flames of War! The other was a 6mm battle between York and Lancaster (?) during some English civil war or other. This game was the first at a club being set up by Yorkie, over and 'Little Legions' in a village hall about 45 mins from me. It was the inaugural meeting tonight and we managed to get 6 of us there for a multi player game. Some lovely mini's, good banter and a pretty quick playing game. Here's some pics:
|All set up, we were on the left - no idea which army we were! Each player had two 'battles'. The hill to our North split our forces a little.|
|The enemy line! Some great looking units.|
|Our battle line - the hill that split our forces can be seen in the distance.|
|Aftermath of the battle in the north - one enemy and one friendly unit lost, with another enemy unit shaken. My own force carefully deployed just out of initiative charge range...|
|Getting ready for the big clash!|
|Exchanging arrow fire - Thankfully Yorkie's dice were poor and he was just out of charge range.|
On Wednesday I was invited round to Yorkies house for a quick game of Flames of War. I picked two 1000pt infantry lists and we used my figures (although his own are stunning). I only took one picture of the game, but it resulted in a Highland victory.
Magic Wash wise, the concotion looks like this:
|German MG bunkers, resins casts. I've since put the static grass on them so they should be finished this weekend.|
|This was them after a wash of the Magic Wash mixture and a drybrush of Russian Uniform. More highlighting still required!|
