I’ve been quiet around these parts, but not inactive.
I’m still a little high on painting vehicles. That LVTA(1) has been hanging around since Historicon, and the M3 since the Historicon before that one (the final unpainted model in my USMC starter). The Sherman’s more recent. They’re ready for weathering, in need of some touch-up thanks to sloppy stenciling, and in need of painting respectively.
There’s a Flames of War – Great War tournament at Huzzah in July, which I’m using as motivation to finally get around to painting all of the Germans I have for it. They’re trucking along: the first platoon was done back in December, as a palate cleanser while grinding out slightly larger figures for Amiens, but the second platoon was knocked out over the weekend along with substantial progress on a bunch of weapon teams.
If I can keep this pace up, I might have everything done by early June (and not just the bases I need for July)… but that might just be me getting cocky: painting 10 bases in a day and a half doesn’t mean the next 60 will fly by in no time.
Finally, I’m almost done getting a company of Red Devils assembled for the Market Garden game we’re eyeballing in September. I’m 7 Riflemen short, plus whatever I need to do for an Engineer squad. These should get painted quickly, I think.
