Over the past month or so I have been working on churning (picture the steam roller scene in A Fish Called Wanda for actual speed) out some terrain pieces for the RCW game. Trenches and wire. I did about 9 feet of wire and 6 feet of trenches. Here are a few photos.
I added two gaming site links under French Indochina. Both sites offer inspiration on a long-standing interest. Several years back I purchased some sample 15mm figures from Eureka and even spoke to them about some additions to the range (Viet paras and African infantry and gunners!).
One day perhaps I will take the plunge.
I completed my barbed wire lines (I am going to go back in and change some of the post colors to make them stand out better. I also started working on the trench system. I should be done in a couple weeks if all goes well.
I also fished out my cavalry and started basing up the Whites and washed the Reds in preperation for painting. Today I am going to try and finish carving off the MGs from the WWWII Revell Terek Cossacks. I also have lots of Orion Reds to work on.
Lots to do… photos to follow.
Just a quick note on the game of Desperado that Jim E. and I played yesterday. Jim invited me over shortly after I returned from Afghanistan but for many reasons we were not able to get together until yesterday. We played a very enjoyable game of Desperado up in his wargames room. We split up a group of suitably desperate gunslingers and went at it. It was an enjoyable game despite the loss of two of my more colorful characters Sheriff “oops where did I leave my pants” and Sailor Bob and the not as severe as it sounds wounded arm leaving my “Two gun kid” with only one gun. Jim’s mantra in the future will have to be ‘Don’t go out in the street….”
The game was a lot of fun and I have agreed to run a game in the near future. It will probably by a 90mm Medieval slog fest.
I was also finally able to get a photograph to post onto “The Guild” for the group build. I think I have it figured out. Next task is to finish up the barbed wire and get the White Cavalry painted up.
Happy Easter to all.
While it looks more NW/W european, this one will still be utilized.
