So, I think this will be the last one for today (my first day!). I'll seal this up then post to TMP regarding the wargaming community's newest blogger. Here we have some photos of my "moderns," AKA from Vietnam forward to the present day. It is of note that almost everyone of these 'armies' is from Minifigs, which is what I started with. My first 10mm forces were Minifigs' Modern US Infantry and Modern Arab Insurgents from the 'old' GFI Minifigs in the US. I built a USMC force and Iraqi Insurgent force that saw me through quite a few games of Ambush Alley's Force on Force rules. It wasn't until later that I learned of Pendraken, which is where most of my stuff has come from since. But I will say Minifigs has some great character, and there's nowhere else to go for modern forces. Pendraken has moved forward with both Vietnam and Falkands ranges, which I have *in my possession* for the former and *ordered and on the way* for the latter :-) I'd love to see them getting into modern US/Brit/French/various Insurgents, NATO vs. Warsaw Pact in mid-80's, etc... I'm working on a special project in which I'll be morphing a bunch of current Pendraken stuff into... well, whatever I need it to be.
Without further adieu, here's some pics:
Well, I got a lot done today, my first day in the blogosphere. I will pray for the strength and discipline to keep me going. Heck, I still have a lot to do just in terms of getting photos of all my stuff in here, much less moving forward on my various projects. I endeavor to persevere...
