It's been a few weeks since I posted, but I assure you all has not been quiet. Just ask my credit card! I hope to have photos soon, but here's a brief recap of what I have been able to do, mostly in brief increments between life's issues.
1. Finished a unit of Saxon warriors for Saga. Huzzah! Well, almost. They need a clearcote and basing. I debated going with square bases like my old ones, or some circular wooden ones I found (but are thick and kind of pricey). In the end, I ordered some Renedra bases this morning, and will probably end up rebasing a bunch of old ones too.
2. Got reinspired for Liberators. With John Fletcher's announcement of the forthcoming Osprey Essential History on the South American Wars of Independence, and assurance he is still working on a war in the north sourcebook, I got these guys out again. I have nearly finished up some British Legion, and have started in on some Royalists. Still long-term, but progress!
3. ACW. Yes, I even started painting some ACW guys that have been languishing. Wheat's Tigers, to be specific. What I still really need is some terrain. I am also pretty seriously tempted by Regimental Fire & Fury, but I don't know about basing all my guys again.
4. CY6 - been fairly quiet here, but there are a few things on the desktop!
5. Napoleonic ships - still plugging away slowly here. Rigging a brig and Constitution. I'd love to get a game in this spring yet.
That's about it. I'll try to get some photos soon!
