Despite my very busy playing schedule with the Cuba Libre campaign, I've also had some other stuff going on. First, I bought the "Command and Colors: Napoleonics" boardgame, as well as the Austrian expansion. I intend on playing the game with miniatures, and what I'm using are "10mm," which in this case is actually little plastic Risk game pieces. Several years ago I bought quite a bit painted from Gunner of "La Petite Armee," but I need quite a bit more. I'd bought a bunch of the Risk pieces off of E-bay a year or so ago, and now I finally have something to do with them. The other issue is that, for the third time in my short wargaming career, I've gone big into 15mm. The first two times I bought a slew of 15mm WWII stuff for company/battalion-level games, painted it up (or mostly so), then gave it away. Now I'm looking at 15mm modern skirmish gaming, and so I've ordered up quite a bit and been working on it. With more on the way, and more in the purchase queue.
Let's get to it.

I've got to tell you, these are the lazy man's dream: you pays your money, then all you do is lift them out of their precious little boxes.
Then I calmed down and actually took a look at it; I grabbed some Elmer's Glue (PVA, to you Brits) and slapped it together in five minutes, no sweat. It was actually super easy, I just need to get around to painting it!
Well, that's what I've been working on the past month or so, when not gaming. There will be additional pictures and separate posts once the various elements are finished.
