So, what have I been up to since my last posting?
Apart from spending five days at Blenheim Palace for the horse trials (see facebook post from my dog: https://www.facebook.com/paul.wisken.7/posts/953008101487847?notif_t=like¬if_id=1473884147211044), during which I drafted the rules for my new game “Bomber”, I have been painting models and constructing terrain.
For Bomber I have been painting up 14 1/600 Lancaster bombers and some 1/1000 buildings. At the same time I have painted 5 GHQ 1/285 Shermans and about two dozen 30mm Plastic Spencer Smith Grenadiers. I also painted two regiments of 6mm MDF figures for ny “in period” Napoleonic games.
My new method of getting things done is to leave new purchases on the painting table until they are ready, even if I have moved on to a new interest while waiting for delivery of the models.
For the ongoing Operation Sealion campaign I have made some new hexagon tiles for the engagement at Postling (see the image with this post). Several new hedged roads were needed for this scenario.
So, what for the future?
More MDF figures to be painted, mainly cavalry. Bombers to be finished, and JU88 night fighters to be started. many more 1/1000 buildings to be painted and based. Rules for Bomber to be playtested.
