I'm thinking about using Chain of Command for World War Two. I'm not sure how well that will cater for 54mm figures. It is a little bit down the road as the figures take a bit of painting with their camo patterns. I was considering using Germans and US instead, as the painting will be more straight forward and support weapons are more available from Tamiya etc.
The ECW will be for use with Pikeman's Lament. My idea is to play out a fictional campaign in an imagined county during the ECW. The thing about 54mm is that it really brings to life the characters that you invent in these kinds of campaigns.
My final quandary is how I will paint the ECW. There are three options:
- Toy soldier style in gloss varnish (Like the French above)
- Realistic shading in gloss varnish
- Realistic shading in matt varnish (like the WW2 above)
Anyway, that is me, I am still very much around, and maybe I might even start posting a bit more regularly too.
