The weekend is ticking down with no games in, but I've been a painting (and basing) fool. Today I finished up my Castro Regime regulars (using Pendraken Argentinians), and I finished painting my Liberation-era CLA Regulars/Airborne (using Pendraken US Vietnam range). However, I didn't get them based up because... I ran out of pennies! I'll have to see if I can pick up a couple hundred new bases tomorrow...
In any case, with all this painting and basing going on, you know what that means: the invasion draws nearer. There's really not a whole lot left I need to get taken care of before it's time whoop it on. I got some palm trees that I need to put flock on, and I've got a few more figures I need to get sorted out for the Liberation fight, but the biggest deal I have working against me is buildings. All I really have in my inventory are (extraordinarily bad-looking) WW2 ruined buildings. I've got plenty of them, but I don't know that they will work out for me in Cuba, unless our plan is to destroy every town in the process of liberating it ("we had to destroy the village to save it..."). Not sure what to do; I don't have a ton of money lying around to go out and buy some buildings, so this is gonna get interesting.
On to the pics:
The battalion commander's arty: 81's (there are actually three of them in the pack).
I need to find me some pennies and get these guys done up. I also need to do some Pendraken Vietnam range guys in boonie covers up for the CLA UCW guys that will be leading Popular Force units, flock all the palm trees, and get some suitable buildings, then it will be time for D-Day, February 1, 1990.
