Too Long...

Well looking at the calendar I realize that it's been way too long since I've last posted.  It makes it appear like I haven't done anything...while that's true on the painting front, it's not true on the gaming and overall hobby front.  I haven't painted much...just finished up some 15mm horses for a Marian Roman army is all.  Next up are some 28mm Dark Ages figures for my friend Mike and I.

That said, I've been busy with my collection since the last post.  I acquired rather large 15mm WWII German and Soviet forces which has allowed me to get rid of some excess (I realized I didn't need 54 T34s!) and work on building out these armies for Flames of War to cover all periods of the war with different options.  I have some additional units to purchase, but I should be fairly set after that until the Barbarosa book comes out and I end up doing early war tank forces for both sides (currently working on completing infantry based forces). 

I also got rid of my 15mm DAK and picked up a nice 15mm Italian force suitable for the desert; I've added to it and can use it for early war through mid war.

I've been playing Black Powder and got in some games of Hail Caesar and Pike & Shotte and I enjoy those systems, so I'm going to be working on converting my 28mm ancients armies for use in HC.  I'm also going to work on a couple of 15mm armies for Pike & Shotte.

I've also decided to build a couple of forces for 28mm WWII skirmish.  A lot of the locals are playing Bolt Action and I'll be giving that a try, but I also want to check out some other rule sets that I haven't tried before.

That's it for now...look for more updates soon...hopefully!
