Finished paint on unit #2 of "Retreat From Moscow"

Well, the basic paint is done... time to get finishing!  These guys are a real challenge to paint; SO many different colors and cloths and all sorts of random bits and pieces.  Plus, they are a crazy mix of infantry, cavalry, and random civilians, so uniforms are a nightmare.  Thank you for huge, covering blankets and the like.  Next up, I reward myself with a sled, and then maybe two stands of light infantry.

Finally... a fridge in the House of War!

Well, a neighbor was selling this little fridge for twenty bucks, so I snatched it up!  It isn't PERFECT, because it is a tiny bit deeper than I'd like, but it works fine being in the corner of the room like this.

I then threw some drinks in the bottom half (some sodas, seltzer, water, and juice) and then some snacks in the top... a glass bowl of different sweet miniature chocolates, and a huge assortment of individual chip bags.

And now, I'm ready to truly entertain!  Now, I just need some friends... :)

BTW, it is amazing what you "see" in photos... all of those white wires for the lighting are basically invisible in real life.

Made some planets for "Armada"

Hey all!

Well, I did up a few planets!

Now, I did say they are for Armada, but actually, they are for a new game that is being released; "Freejumper," by the veteran rules author Sam Mustafa.  Sam mentioned he needed to do some photos for the rules, and I said I'd be happy to knock up some stuff for it!

So... voila!  A moon, an Earth-like planet, and a sun looking thing!

Some paint on the next Perry "Retreat from Moscow" infantry unit

Hey all!

Got some work done on the base coats for the next Perry "Retreat from Moscow" infantry unit!  Trying to keep the colors somewhat limited, so it doesn't get overwhelmingly colorful.  The figures do take a lot of work to paint up... they have SO many random cloths and stuff wrapped around hands and feet and faces and guns... tough to get them all on the first time through, or second time through, or even the third time through!:)
