A bunch of things on the go this Thanksgiving weekend, including a visit from my Dad and sister to our new digs for Thanksgiving dinner. First up are some more Austrians:
|Battheyanai L, Forgach R|
|Forgach L, Batthayani R.|
These are Hungarians, and are, I think, a later sculpt than the regular Austrian foot. Don't know if I'm getting back into the swing of 6mm, or it's the sculpt, but I found these guys an easier paint.
|Grosbruck L, Kolonrat R|
|And vice versa|
I've done all of these battalions as the first of their regiment. If I expand down the road, I can turn each of the two-regiment units into separate units of their own by painting up a second battalion base.
I've also been plugging away at the Russians for Blucher, and have also been experimenting with some 6mm armour for Rommel. I had some test models for the latter done up on a 3d printer, and will set about painting them when I get the time and settle on basing. Big issue there is space; Rommel scales its playing area nicely, but larger bases let me do some dioramic stuff I'd like to try. Means gaming is a little more involved (as I'd have to rearrange the office to play a game), but what the heck.
In the mean time, Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians out there. I have to go baste a turkey ;)
