Egyptian Chariots

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 ...

Junior Nationals Again

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.

A Little More Dark Ages Progress

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: .  Now I need to do the same.
