First up, five nights here where I met and worked with other veterans, very cool
After that a trip to the Brisbane Library to meet and hear my favourite fantasy author, Raymond E Feist; before this stuff I only ever read history and politics with maybe the odd biography. Ray is a very modest man who writes good stories including, one of my top-books-to-read-ever- A-lister, Magician
Next up, to the Sunshine Coast, where I found this little underground wonderland, Nambour Hobby Centre, which produced the following...
Been working away on a few more infantry figures to prepare for a game
And, have added two more companies
All of the latest additions are carrying ammunition boxes because I had originally wanted to build them as an engineer unit, but lacked the necessary picks and shovels, etc, that would have made them look a bit more 'engineer-like'
I managed to achieve a few more poses by mixing what I had left between the infantry and machinegun sets
Here is the full battalion, minus its support company, which is still in the process of being built.
More cheap scenery items added this week with help from my Jungle Animals Playset, this time fences...
First I cut them in half and then based them on pieces of flooring tile
Two different colours and styles give me a little bit of variety, the only thing missing now is flock on the bases, which I don't have so will have to worry about that later on
Slowly starting to build up the basic necessities for a modest game, the first of which is in about three weeks time with my nieghbour Phil, who has been furiously reading the rules for CD3 and getting a grasp of the game mechanics since I met him about this time last week. Keep you posted...
