I apologize for the delay, there's been two issues:
1) I've been pretty damn busy with work and family stuff, so not a lot of time for wargaming stuff. Which is not to say I haven't been doing anything, but that leads to number two.
2) I've been getting lots of 'grunt' work done. Lots of cleaning up, assembling, prepping, priming, painting, basing, etc... It's not that I don't feel like playing, I do; hell, I always feel like playing. But I don't always feel like painting, etc..., and what I've learned is that when I am in the mood for that stuff I need to maximize it, and that's what I've been doing.
The only problem is that I'm too much a butterfly, can't keep my eye on the ball, so I didn't finish anything. Rather, I simply made some progress on several different projects...
First up is stuff for the upcoming rules, "5Core Brigade Commander," which I'm doing with multi-based units in 6mm, mostly GHQ, but some CinC as well.
I think, due to my lack of planning, I may have gone a bit too far... I am really not sure what I'm going to do with all this stuff, as I've got way more than I need for Brigade Commander.
My old 'khaki' WarPac, which I also put on bases.
Another problem is that I haven't really done anything with infantry for all this stuff yet. Though I do have 8 million US and NVA infantry based on pennies...
1) the strange German uniform color. Does that look right to you guys?
2) assembly issues. These are plastic guys with plenty of parts. I didn't pick a good example as these guys all have the same weapon, but that's not the case with a lot of figures. Here you can see all four guys of one pose, with four different heads. They all come with the same head, so you have to cut off the head, pull the new one off the sprue, then glue it on. No big deal I'm sure for a lot of you guys, but I'm pretty much a 10mm guy, so I'm used to simply pulling off a little flash with my knife, then grinding the base flat (on the bottom), and I'm ready to put them on sticks and prime. Putting these guys (four boxes!) together was quite an undertaking for me.
So, I have plenty of work to do still, but I've got a long weekend coming up and I've resolved to knock out the final four fights of my Polish campaign, so stay tuned.
