First up, I've completed the Herman Goering Division commission from Craig. Last photos are here:
The first wave of Team Yankee Soviets arrived, and I've sorted them out:
I'll do a proper review soon, but the upshot is that the figures are really nice sculpts let down by some pretty ordinary casting. A lot of flash and mold lines to clean, and the barrels on the AK-74s are a bit flimsy, made worse by the amount of flash attached to many of them. Sad face for you Battlefront :( !
A repaint of the Animal Man heroclix figure. This was a bit of fun for a project that will get its day in the sun soon, I hope. Needless to say that this isn't Animal Man - he is a member of my own Superteam I've designed for gaming with. His superhero name is 'Groover'.
I sold a few bits and pieces - mostly books - and these have funded my accumulation of the last few Great Northern War figures and the last couple of blisters I needed for WWII in Italy. This came on top of exchanging some figures for three Tiger tanks with Paul.
If these don't look like Battlefront tanks, you are both right and wrong. They are the first Tigers that they produced before going to the grey resin most people are familiar with. These came out before the company released the Flames of War rules. Collector's items, I'm sure!
Of course there was also a couple of games of Commands and Colors in there as well, just to prove I don't only collect and paint in this hobby of mine. These have got their own posts.
