That could probably describe events in the hobby arena as of late. Lately life has been busy but I've been managing to get in a game here and there or to slap some paint on my patient miniatures - there are alot of irons in the fire!
I have also been slowly assembling a UH-1D "Huey" for my upcoming LZ X-Ray battle. Here are some interesting pictures of all that nonsense going on:
|this is the Italeri kit. It comes in several configurations you can choose from - West German Search and Rescue, Italian or Spanish Army, or US Army in Vietnam. I obviously am choosing the latter.|
|Here is a shot of the troop compartment so far...|
|What a pain in the ass these pieces were to put on.|
|the model builds shape...|
|fuselage - now they are all OD Green after spraying along with the additional pieces for the external body. I taped off the nose and will have to HAND DRAW the 229th Aviation Regiment's crest on the nose. I am going to be modeling a ship from Major Bruce Crandall's A Company.|
|Everyone's attending this party...|
|French infantry and cavalry waiting for their uniforms. These will turn into 2 more French Battalions.|
|SURPRISE! Quality Castings 15mm BMP-2 for my moderns...I imagine when all the Zvezda Modern 15s I've ordered come in, these guys will take center stage.|
|Orc Regiment - the Warmaster troopers are also part of the rebasing project, and are being based on 3 x 1.5" "Regimental" stands now.|
If this was a squad leader game, my stand would be red...
