A few new guns

Below are a few pics of six Soviet 45mm AT guns I recently finished.  There are a couple of pioneer supply trucks as well.  I'm taking a little change-of-pace break from the Templars and decided to get a small start on the huge 15mm WWII Russian army I acquired last year.  Enjoy.

Something a bit different

Back in the 80's I was pretty heavy into AD&D, 1st edition in those days.  I've played a few times over the years since then, but never kept up with the additional rules.  Last year I played a few sessions of a 1ed campaign that a local guy was running.  I had a good time and met some good people.  It brought back a lot of fun memories, but I wasn't really into the DM's stlye.  A few months ago one of the guys I clicked with at these sessions started running games using the new 5th edition. He told me it was a good set of rules and that I should check it out.  I looked at the Player's Handbook in a local store, but put it back pretty quickly after seeing the $50 price tag.  I'd much rather spend that money on miniatures these days.  One bored night last week while perusing eBay, I saw a guy selling the Player's Handbook and Starter Set.  Retail for these two is $70.  He wanted $26 plus $3.50 for shipping, so I bought them.  Got it in and have started going through it.  I really like what I've seen so far, but was amazed that this PH is about 3 times the size of the 1ed. It's more like the old DM's guide in number of pages.   Anyway, maybe I can find the time to get this going on a semi-regular basis before too long.
