As I'm sure you noticed, I didn't get any gaming in last weekend as I was working hard on finishing up my WWII early war stuff. They are now ready to go, and so I have the minis ready to play out Germany's invasion of Poland (mind you, I don't have Poles, so Soviets will be standing in for them). I just need to find time today to 1) clean up my toy room (get the troops and table ready), 2) get the admin side of things cleaned up (my German order of battle, and mission and force generators (need to modify Ivan's 5Core Company Commander mission and army generators just a bit), and 3) map out the campaign fights (I intend on doing a 'tree,' i.e., this is the first fight, which progresses to one of two different fights dependent upon who won the first one, and so on. So here's what I've been working on:
For the whole force, I glued the turrets, glued the tank crewman on, gave them a green spray prime, painted the tracks and MGs (and crewman), put a little rust on exhausts, maybe a dark green box or something, give them a blackwash, glue them to the base, flocked them, and maybe threw on a bush or two. Even with that limited amount of steps it took me way longer than expected to do the whole force...
That was a sentiment that came up a couple times during this, but I don't want to wait to start my campaign any longer, so, "you go to war with the army you have."
Well, that's what I've been busting my butt trying to finish. For those interested in seeing my other early war stuff:
Here's a link to my French:
And the Germans and Soviets:
All that stuff should get me up to my campaign detour to the North African desert.
Standby for action!
