Pooch's May update

May is done now too? This is getting ridiculous.... 

1. Finish a table of terrain

Ooof. My plans of doing big pieces of terrain aren't really getting anywhere. But what I did do, was two sets of the Star Wars Legion barricades. That counts as progress, right?

They are barricades. Need I say more?

2. Play a game a month

This month, I played Flames of War at our club competition at Valleycon, playing 5 games over two days. I used my US Cavalry, so zoomed around Italy with Greyhounds and generally was about as effective as you would expect lightly armoured vehicles to be.

Stuarts and Greyhounds looking cool!

Some of Bob's excellent Tigers doing mean things to my Greyhounds

Overall, it was enjoyable, I do like Flames of War! It prompted all of the nerds to think about playing more FoW, which I think is a good thing.

3. Finish a 1,500 point 40k army

Probably my biggest disappointment of the month. I got a bunch of odds and sods done, but nothing really substantial. I finished....

Three Repentia- just needing their bases

Two Death Cult Assassins, repurposed and tidied from my Krieg army

Stained Glass panel from the Immolator, using Contrast paints

Some guns and bare heads

I guess the Death Cult assassins count as a unit finished, but it is a bit of a stretch! Need to make some serious progress on them next month, otherwise I won't be able to have 1000 points done for August's games!

4. Finish armies that I have part started

Ok, so not only did I finish what I needed to paint for my army for Valleycon, I painted all of the 15mm US that I own!

Six M10 Tank Destroyers

3 M3 Stuarts, 4 M5 Stuarts

8 75mm Shermans

3 76mm Shermans

I'd like one more box of Shermans, but I think these guys are done until the US later-late war book comes out sometime in the future!

5. Buy, build and play a new game

A terrible photo, but a very cool model of Asajj Ventris from Shapeways. She will be a 'counts as' Maul, for when I decide I don't want to use the double ended lightsaber loony, and instead want to use a twin lightsaber loony! 

Asajj Ventris- a 3d print from Shapeways

Not just Asajj, I also have yet more droids done!


Droid Specialists!

But I still didn't manage to paint the next batch of B1 Battle Droids. Next month maybe?

You had better get painting those sisters!
