What a pleasent surprise this afternoon on arriving home: my new toys from The Assault Group finally reached destination!! Forget the office, forget the bloody heat wave!!!
I decided some weeks ago to beef-up my US Vietnam troops aiming to have a full infantry company finished for the autumn season at the club. I bought one special forces and 4 regular infantry blisters including a command group (as we play 1:2 scale, each blister is roughly equivalent to an 8-man squad sized unit).
M113s, as well as some 0.5 cal HMGs to replace the original ordnance of my AFV models that was very low quality.
Now I only need to start painting. But where to start? Projects for this summer keep piling on my table. But blame Thanos from Miniatures & Terrain blog and his recent amazing explosion marker tutorial post (really worth taking a look!) or his also remarkable Normandy House tutorial series; and of course Señor Clarke from TooFatLardies who's pushing me really hard to start painting my Romano British army to play his incoming Dark-Age rules Dux Britaniarum... decisions, decisions!!...where to start??!!!I... Can anyone imagine a more stressful life than that of the wargamer???
