It's been a month since my last post and I've not really been in the mood to post. I have, however done loads of stuff. I played a couple of games, another 7YW epic with Matt and a Bolt Action cold war gone hot battle of my US armoured infantry platoon vs Ian's Russians.
The 7YW battle was great, we are getting better at the rules and controlling our vast armies. This was the battle of Koln and once again I was the Austrians.
This picture is jsut a teaser and Matt's full write up can be found here. As you can tell still not really in the mood for writing.
The 2nd battle against Ian was fun. THe main issue with Bolt action is tat tanks are very hard to kill, generally you need 3 consecutive 5+ rolls to take out a tank. In the 1st battle, sorry no pictures, I killed both his T34s in the 1st turn! So we set up again and once more the tanks died easily but this one was closer, another victory for me.
The painting challenge is approaching and I have been restocking the lead pile. This challenge will focus on Sci fi and fantasy for a change. With that in mind I have started collecting and painting a Lizardman army using 3-D printed resin figures from Sundered Studios., the figures are exceptionally good. I've made a start
