I have not blogged in awhile, but I have been making progress on several projects. I have also been significantly distracted by World of Tanks, an online game that I play with my son. I'm not a video game fan normally, but the game is quite fun. The historical aspect has also pulled me in.
I have several ongoing modeling efforts at the "halfway point"
Painting is also complete on a Convergence of Cyriss battlegroup, but the basing work is only halfway done.
This hasn't stopped us from playing.
Ryan once again quickly defeated me this morning - taking out my Warcaster early in the game.
I have my US infantry primed up. I also have started work on the bases for the HMG and 60mm Mortar. I'm planning a separate post on this project once it is complete.
I scored a good deal on a Squadron sale of 1/48 Hobby Boss Shermans. I couldn't resist starting the model build.
A warning for anyone building Hobby Boss tanks - watch out for needless steps. The mid-production 75mm Sherman has several options for road wheels, but the instructions are not clear. I almost built extra road wheels....a tedious effort.
As a secondary distraction, I discovered that the Tamiya 1/48 models can be bought significantly cheaper here in Korea than from US websites. I'm tempted to shift my BA plans from the Japanese to a German opponent to keep costs down.
I have MDF-based road and river pieces ready for finishing. This project has been on hold since the BA and Warmachine bugs bit.
I haven't touched my 15mm Napoleonic project in almost a year. This isn't a priority since I don't really have an opponent. Ryan likes DBA and skirmish games.
Lots of fun ahead!
