Wargaming Week 19/11/2018

Let’s start this Wargaming Week, covering the 11th through to the 18th of Novemeber.

NEWS

Oh boy is this a big one. The long-awaited French from Empress have been finally released. These guys continue their Ultramodern releases, seeing as they are not wielding the trusty FAMAS but instead various items from H&K’s catalogue, the 416 and the 417 specifically. There is a nice variety of poses in the packs, as well as plenty of grenade launchers.

The release includes four packs of infantrymen, a three-man AT missile pack and a set of heads with NVGs. I quite like this range, both for using as modern French but also for generic 416 armed troops if you swap the heads for US Army or Marine Corp

PURCHASES

None, still working on my backlog. I was very tempted with the new French but I’ve decided to wait until Vapa in the new year. Maybe the feeling of the nations I haven’t finished yet (like the USMC and the Rangers and the British) were weighing on my mind.

HOBBY

I finally assembled something! And then threw some paint on it. The BMP1, which has been sat on my desk for a while, is now assembled and base sprayed. I was planning to get it finished off this week and get the write up done but there have been some personal things that mean I’ll be away from my desk for a bit.

I’m also going to get the Dshk turret for the Humvee finished and then this pair will be ready for my next game.

Although speaking of my desk, here is just a glimpse of it. I managed to get a few new things on bases, including the special edition Texas sheriff that Spectre released. He is only made of resin so fingers crossed he doesn’t get knocked over too often

I’ve also decided that my Christmas project (when I’m back down in Leeds) is going to be getting my Fantasy adventurers painted up. You can see them in the back of the shot and it’s been a while since I finished assembling them. However, I am already thinking about picking up a frame of the new female adventuruers when they are released and getting everything painted up in one go.


That’s it for this update, expect more updates next week!
