Really, really need to try harder!

So as you might have guessed I didn't make my Christmas painting schedule! A busy few weeks of work and a variety of little jobs sucked up the time instead, plus poor weather limited my spraying.

I've finally got the halftracks finished, plus the objectives and the billboard (plus a tree base that isn't) shown.

February's aim is to build the pylons and finish the desert tanks (Grants and Stuarts). I'm halfway through the tanks so it shouldn't be too hard (there's my excuse gone)!

If I miraculously complete early, well there's plenty extra to paint!

Must try harder

So, I didn't complete my challenge. I've got most of it done, but the German halftracks are not finished.

Soviet Command teams

Grants (and OP Stuart)

Halftracks and clutter on the painting table

The plan for next month is thus as follows:
Finish the halftracks
Finish the objectives
Paint the Grants and Stuart
Build the Pylons
Paint the Billboard.

If I get time I have the Bounty Hunter, more 250 Halftracks and some more terrain to work on.

November update

Hello again,
I know I'm a bit late with an update this month. I have managed to achieve my objectives for the month however, then forgot to upload pictures!

First we have the Imperial Fighters.

Then we have the German half-tracks.

This month's target is to finish the following:

Soviet small base (HQ, observer, light mortars)
8 Sd Kfz 251 half-tracks
Build and undercoat 6 Grant tanks and a Necromunda Bounty Hunter

So far the Soviets are nearly done, just got to do the rest!

Yet more Star Wars Squadrons

Well I've now got some more friends into Star Wars Armada so I'm celebrating in the logical manner, by buying more stuff for it. I now seem to own every expansion and my armada box is looking a little full! Part of this has been some more Squadrons. As before I've tried to replicate some of the X-Wing schemes, as well as paint up some of the unique squadrons from the Correllion Conflict.

Here are the Rebels

And two more Decimators for the Empire.

I've also noticed that I've been really bad with the challenges recently, so October's challenge is to finish the remaining Imperial fighters and paint my Sd Kfz 250 half-track recce company.

Here Come the Cavalry!

The German Cavalry.....

That I can't really use in Flames of War.....

So the funny story behind these is that a friend bought them, decide not to do an early war cavalry army, and gifted them to me. I got them built and undercoated, and put them on the shelf expecting them to be there for a while.

Suddenly the Strelkovy are finished and need varnishing and basing which is hard to do when I'm away with work (which has been a lot recently). Need a new project quickly, to do while I'm away, I spot these on the shelf, the results are below!

The Human Wave Finally Arrives

So it's been a long time since an update on this blog. A busy summer, together with a large painting project has limited the updates I could put up. However I have finally finished my Strelkovy company together with a HMG company.

 HMG company (6 Maxim Heavy Machine guns)

 And the Strelkovy Company (with command for 2 companies if needed)

Hopefully I should have some more updates soon!
