Can't say I've done much since last post, but I have decided to take some photos to brighten this place up a bit.
The friday's gaming night went well. One guy was really interested in trying Strange Aeons and we managed to squeeze quite a lot of games in - I think around 7 or so. At first, he kept winning without any trouble, but by the end, one of his guys died (and after he put the same miniature in the list, he died again :D). Apart from that Infinity and Flames of war (early war) were played. I came home with those *great* ideas for new projects:
- SA board with Ljubljana's three bridges - it is an old idea, but I should really start working on it, so I can occupy myself. It is rainy outside and I'll go mental if I don't start working on something large-ish.
- I like how Infinity plays, but I don't really like the sculpts. Or the prices. So I was thinking about getting something similar to get in a game, as a side project and that's very low priority.
- FOW EW. I haven't played game in a while now, but seeing Finish ski guerilla company, I instantly figured making partisan army that could be played by those rules would be a great project. The army has special ambush rules that would really fit the whole idea of partisans. As an all-infantry list, it wouldn't be competitive, but hey, I don't remember the last time I won anything! :D
Apart from thinking, I've done some actual doings, too. Here is what I'm painting at the moment:
I haven't been sculpting a lot lately, but I have made considerable progress since I've last shown any of my work.
Do remember some of the things you'll see were made multiple times, so all together I was working on them much more than it shows :P.
Here is my sculpting "table", so, the chopping block.
That is a GL on the left gun.
I have decided to go for a variety of covers as they're used with the old uniform - I still don't know what the covers will look like on the new, if there will be any at all!
First has multiple strips that allow you to tuck in grass and other vegetation as much as your heart desires. This is my favorite as it has more "going on". It doesn't look that bad in person, either.
I have decided I will make the Special forces pack first as all the ad-ons will make them not only suitable (and accurate) for moderns, but also for any low-tech sci-fi, as gun itself is quite futuristic looking.
Oh, on the private life front, I'm also growing my Mo, but being a blonde and gifted with little to razor, there's nothing I can show that would be seen on photos on day 4 :D.
Thanks for looking and feel free to comment away!
