Current Events

For the last several weeks I've been working on a couple of things.  I'm currently learning Flames of War and have built a few platoons of infantry and armor for that.  I chose to start with late war British and have had a great time with it so far.  FoW has easily become my main game (at least for now).  I haven't really run into anything I don't like about it at this point - with the possible exception of some of the pricing for 15mm vehicles.  While not exorbitant, I do think the prices from the "main" source of models for this system is a bit overpriced.  But, it's a great game and I love it.

I've also been working on 28mm Duchy of Warsaw figures from Front Rank Figurines.  My local gaming group is planning an 1813 campaign for late summer/fall.  These figures from Front Rank are superb.  So far I've done grenadiers and voltigeurs.  They've been a joy to paint - especially after weeks of brown and green for FoW and months of brown and green for Bolt Action.  Murowski miniatures have just released new Vistula Legion miniatures and they look really great.  I was planning on adding Vistula plastics from Warlord, but I think now I'm going to use the ones from Murowski.
