So I printed the grunt in 28 and 15mm and had a good look at him. This range is a bit squat to be honest, but for 3D printing it will mean they don’t snap off at the ankles.
Very tempted to jump in. I will get US, NVA as well as VC. Vehicles and heavy weapons and of course the Huey,
But why I hear you cry? Or possibly it was my good lady.
Since the 80’s I have had a fascination with the conflict and ran a LRRP role play game in the club a good few years ago. I found the cardboard miniatures and maps the other day and got all nostalgic. This Kickstarter appeared when I had a mooch. I have looked at their other ranges in the past and have gone straight past… thus one actually made me pause and consider.
There are three days left before the end so big thinks are going to have to be thunk.
So it may be time to board the slick. Lock and load and head out into the boondocks and look for Charlie.
Well okay that is a massive over exaggeration, but I have to admit that these are probably the brightest things I have painted since the Imperials from the Italian Wars.
The really pale blue isn’t really working so it is either another colour over the top or another coat or two. I have yet to decide. The unpainted one is there as I didn’t want the paint to run into the wet blue.
I also worked on the tusks on the big beastie. Not perfect, but better than the very first attempt…
Tonight Joe and I went to the club to play Silver Bayonet… it was a brutal game where we had to root out a changeling from amongst a group of bandits who were holed up in an old barn.
The Bandits were all armed with muskets. I killed the first bandit, which happened to be the changeling, which galloped straight towards me!
It was a hard fought game. I managed to down the changeling, but Joe nicked it’s book, thus winning the game. Casualties were high on both sides. I had three of my eight left standing and Joe had two of his.
Madame managed to curse most of the opposition… my officer was downed twice, only a quick sprint by the doctor saved an early demise.
Joe was definitely unlucky when all but one of the remaining bandits headed in his direction.
The lights were out again tonight, full on swirls and banding with a lot of pulsing too…
