Hey, hey! Had to do some travel for business and travel prep, execution, and recovery have kept me from the painting table. Here's where I go to before I boarded the great silver bird -
Here is a sample of the 6 faun archers that are now completed. I added some Silfor tufts just to break up things up from the usual static grass. Here's a back view -
I started on the next batch, some heavy infantry
And finally, got the antennae primed for the Blue Moon SF building.
Before I left, I also got to play a game with Krimso. As those of you you follow his blog may recall, he finished some WWI planes for a game at Historicon that did not get played. Krimso introduced me to Blue Skies, Wood, and Canvas. We played a few scenarios; I played Germans and Krimso played Brits. It was a fun game that I would like to try again. Most of my WWI aero experience is either from the old Avalon Hill board game Richthofen's War and the now out-of-print miniature game Hostile Aircraft. HA was basically a miniatures based version of Richthofen's and both were on the more complicated side. Blue Skies (etc,etc) is a relatively simple game; Krimso had us up and running in a few minutes, and that was a great change of pace. I got the itch to pull out the H.A. planes that have not seen daylight in a decade.
Well, time to get back to the painting table!
