On a unrelated note, my son came in 2nd in his warmup for Adepticon tournament. He and his partner were the youngest team and pulled off a great showing! Way to go!
Ok, back to FoW:
My wife and I picked out a digital camera to take on our upcoming trip to Arnhem, err The Netherlands. I am excited about the camera because of the macro function. I took several pictures with my SLR today and they look poor. We will pick up the camera tomorrow, so in a few days I should know how well the pictures look.
|SLR - Could be better|
But now I have started the British Airlanding Company! Well, I am starting with the Armored Platoon and the Typhoons first.
I have been chatting via email with a great guy in Arnhem. There is a LGS that sells FoW that he highly recommends. So I have decided to do TWO British Para Companies - the first is the Airlanding group that I will model after the forces at Pegasus Bridge. The second will be a Parachute Company that I will model after the forces in Arnhem. As I mentioned earlier, I really want to get the troops in Arnhem. So now I will have two distinct basing themes! And this from a guy who really does not like to paint infantry! I am thinking that the support platoons can be shared, so no need to duplicate that work!
And that should last me for the next 6 months.
