I finally had some time today to sit down and work on a project which has been nagging me for a while: finishing the last two chariots for a 1000pt WAB Egyptian army. I've had the army on the table already, but have had to borrow a couple of allied chariots from my son, the Great King of the Hittites.
I don't have all my basing materials with me, but I at least have them attached to the bases proper, and will do sand and grass tomorrow or Saturday.
This pair of chariots completes the original plan, and I therefore ordered a little reward, an Atlantic Pharaoh's Court set to gather a few civilians, and possibly to build a little vignette of a scribe counting a pile of hands, with which to taunt my opponent.
We're back home after my son and his partner won their event in Salt Lake City. Things have been made more exciting by the fact that he came home with some serious flu-like symptoms, but that seems to have cleared up this morning. Now, back to planning Sunday's game ...
Wargames are on hold for a couple of days while my son competes at the US Junior Championships in ice dancing. I almost brought a scenario book for review, since we're having an NQSYW game on the 26th, but figured that I'd be too distracted....and so it is.
Time continues to be short lately, but I have had time to add some paint to Beowulf figures. The fellow on the far left is currently awaiting a final spray varnish coat...Here's to hoping for some time at Christmas...
On a brighter note, Buck Surdu has been adding some Not Quite Seven Years War figures lately, as noted on his blog: www.bucksurdu.com/blog . Now I need to do the same.
I post a little about my ongoing projects, recent games, how I got to where I am, and where I'm going, as time away from the workbench, and a somewhat busy life, permits. I'll try to keep cooking and ballroom dance down to a minimum, but they do seem to take up a lot of time.
This is my really short, no explanation included, list of projects: 54mm Medieval Mayhem (skirmish), 40mm French and Indian War, 40mm NQSYW, 40mm French Revolution/Scarlet Pimpernel, 40mm Renaissance, 25mm Dark Ages (Saxons and Vikings), 25mm Darkest Africa, 25mm Fantasy, 1/72 scale Bronze Age, 1/72 scale 2nd Punic War, 1/72 scale fantasy (travel skirmish), 6mm Ancients (travel DBA), 6mm Fantasy (travel HotT), 6mm Spanish Civil War.
