Not a tremendous amount of modelling or painting going on still, although a game in early May has galvanize me into putting some paint onto my 28mm French Napoleonic troops, more about that next month or sooner. I did work on my 15mm Flames of War late war British armoured company however, making the 6 Sherman V’s and 2 Fireflies that come with the Open Fire boxed set, as well as the American para platoon so that I now have a late war company of around 800 points in desperate need of paint. One Sherman V has a fair bit of paint on it, the other Shermans and a trial base of paras has been air brushed in a red-brown foundation colour.
In gaming the Saga tournament went well, with 8 participants and victory only being torn from the hands of my Welsh by the beard on Michael’s chin – literally! The Flames of War Africa campaign has begun, and I kicked off with a very entertaining complete annihilation by Red’s Grants. I didn’t think beyond the possibility of Crusaders turning up and it all went horribly wrong! Finally I dropped round Aidan’s for an enjoyable day of using his Napoleonic collection.
Stats are still the same, but they will change once I get my varnish into play, or make it as far as Triples in Sheffield.
