So after a few hectic weeks where i was a lone worker in my work due to organised leave and then another team member having pneumonia (!) this week was finally back to 'normal' and I found some hobby time. Which is good..because this wednesday it will be 4 weeks til i fly to Australia to visit Rex and Family and then he and I and my nephew Daniel are going to MOAB in Sydney for the 2 day bolt action event! ( anyone wanting to know more should listen to the 2nd episode of our podcast, see link in older posts).
So: following our guide to preparation, hows Mine going??!!?Well..there are rumbles in the mediterranean..but that could be traced back to the Italians rations of Garlic eclairs.....
I have been working hard and now i have a truck, 88mm gun, SDKFZ 7 and recce Kubelwagon to weather and detail, and the Kubelwagon crew. I feel like i have now just got out of the red zone for time vs tasks !
Ideally i would like to do a display board, but i dont know how i would get that to Australia, so I may have to live without it this time!
Where are the photos of them you ask?!? ...thats delayed for another task i given myself; getting a themed table worth of terrain together to take over for a themed game Rex and I will have, which will also be the subject of a podcast......once i have some more of the terrain finished i will take photos with it.
In the meantime, practice games continue....Had a 'blue on blue' game vs Germans last week, ( photo above) but this coming Thursday a game is set up to play Gordons Brits , i believe his army list is RM armour..? should be an interesting learning experience..
Heres pics of Gordons army facing off against Nathans Italians next to us at last Thursdays meeting;
heres some more pics of the game between Dave and I . This one was key positions, 4 objectives. It probably could have been called 'key dice rolls' as there were so many fluffed rolls it was laughable! in the end it was probably who rolled less bad dice and i just finished off the better by a nose! another great game thanks Dave.
So, some future projects and some 'only got 4 weeks to go!' projects have /will arrive this week in mail drop. first up was this bargain buy;
I got this zug on Trade me for only 75 NZD courier post included! Buy- rinse- repeat.
The next thing i have had to wait for from the UK....no hints will be given becasue youll have to wait and see!
....awww...OK Just one hint:
