Entry for May 15, 2009

What's Up?
Well, my Semovente 47/32 are done (photos taken)-Some trees and approx. 15mm haystacks are done (need to take photos). My Old Glory 25mm Egyptians are 80% done and I just got my flags (from the Flag Dude) in the mail today, so I can finish the standard bearers. Those flags are great! I am going to buy any flags I need in the future from him.
The gaming convention is next weekend, and all is going well. Bruce has everything ready, got my hotel room and I plan to bring my FoW Italians and some Colonials, maybe the 15mm's, as they would be easier to bring and take terrain as well. And Harold and I have played Patrols in the Sudan 1885 at least once.
I'm going to run a Colonial game next Con (Sept. 4th - 7th) The Sword and the Flame. Have to start planning now. Using a scenario from the scenario book I got for The Sword & the Flame makes it easy. Just need to see what figures the scenario needs vs what I have.

Entry for May 6th, 2009

Miniatures Up-date!
All my regular 15mm Peter Pig Egyptians are done, with the exception of the sergeants & Officers, who are nearly finished. The Old Glory 15mm Egyptian's are glued to sticks and primed. I'm going to finish the PP Egyptians 1st, the 25mm OG Egyptians and my FoW Semovente 47/32 (which are nearly finished). Then it's on to painting the OG 15mm Egyptians, basing the Ansar rifleman and something FoW (aircraft? Italian 88's? Captured 25 lbers? Not sure yet) Also need to find something that helps me paint camels.
