So, what I have I been up to recently?
Let's call it a form of "Mickey Mouse Camo"
After 11 days in California, visiting with family and friends, I came back home to a pile of units needing attention. I will say that I am becoming afflicted with the "ton of unpainted lead" (or resin!) disease that cripples so many of us. So I need to knock that pile down.
I know reading about painting without pictures stinks. But until I get better lighting, I can't really do anything about it.
Brit Paras - I have one of my companies (the Arnhem force) base coated. I also have the crews from the 17pdr AT guns base coated. The guns themselves are completed and waiting for the men! I am using a little bit different approach to the paras. I found a thread on FoW that seems to be more to my liking, so I am following it. If they turn out as expected, I will post pictures and tutorial. And to think I complained about American Infantry! To go along with the paras, I have bases from King & Kerr, as well as the new Cassino bases that I will use to model the Arnhem paras.
Typhoons - I am so happy! I have them completed and glossed, awaiting decals. I am happy with the results so far.
Brit armor - This one just snuck onto the table and expanded in every way. I know have 2 full platoons of Cromwells, with Challengers / Fireflies. They are awaiting decals and weathering. Again, they look pretty good. I also have my HQ and a platoon of Shermans.
American - I have two priests waiting decals, weathering and crews. I have a single Sherman ready for weathering only.
Terrain - Several buildings are in process. I hope to get them done - if only from a "something different" view.
Upcoming - How do I explain? I am from the Midwest USA and every winter we see a blizzard coming on the radar several days out. You know it will hit, so you prepare. You know it is inevitable. That is how I feel about Early War. I know it is inevitable. So I am preparing. Brit Armor is my choice! Silly reason for it and not the one that everyone would think. I am not going this route because the list is really strong in EW. I just like painting green. Funny I know. But it is the truth!
Hope everyone is having a great summer so far!
