Home again

I am back from Fall-in and I had a great time. I used the convention as an excuse to get together with my 2 best friends from Virginia. I hadn't seen these guys in almost 2 years and it was like we just saw each other yesterday. Of course being  busy acting like a fool with my buds when I wasn't shopping I didn't spend much time checking out the games going on and completely forgot about my camera. I did see some great games however. It was great to see some beautiful tables and some larger scales you don't see to often. I picked up a bunch of terrain for my in progress Eastern front table as well as a few bits to dress up any of them. I picked up a bunch of stuff for my newest 20mm obsession, vehicle kits, some plastic soldier Germans and the eastern front supplements for NUTS!.  I will showcase the haul soon. I have even already started painting stuff up, which means I am back on board the hobby train.

I haven't had much to say on the hobby front this month. Real life has left me feeling down and depressed and just not feeling like painting at all. On the bright side I will be going to Fall-in this weekend for some gaming goodness and meeting up with my old friends from VA for an excellent weekend. so long as I remember to bring my camera I will have some good gaming pictures to share next week. Lets hope this weekend brings me back to life!

Painting for profit....or not.

I Recently agreed to paint some battlefront Early war french. I received the models over the weekend and have begun the prep work on them. I have not taken the time to look over the list in blitzkrieg yet so I am not sure what the break down company wise is but there are 25 tanks and armored cars, an Infantry platoon and 2 artillery units. There is quite a bit to get done here and as I am being paid to paint these I cant take my usual super slow approach to them. 

 On the other side of things I have decided to take a break from my usual Flames of war group for the month. I have been Playing a lot of FOW this year and decided I needed to slow down a bit. Of course this is temporary and in no way means I am not working on stuff for myself either. I have picked up some 1/72 plastic Germans and soviets which I am painting up for some games of  NUT'S!.  I am enjoying the scale change quite a bit, The figures are painting up nicely and I like the variety of vehicle options available in the form of Plastic model kits.
