Let’s start this Wargaming Week, covering the 21st through to the 27th of October.
No news! Last week was a pretty major dump while this week is pretty much silent.
After last week’s post, I grabbed some of Sarissa Precision’s compound walls – I’ve been looking to assemble these for a long time so being able to grab some pre-designed saves me a chunk of time. And honestly, walls help to really set the scene.
I also picked up a few more pieces for my Dark Eldar project – more details when they are ready, I’m looking forward to getting them built as I’ve loved them as a unit for a very long time.
Most of my hobby stuff this week has been behind the scenes, undercoating and basing. However, I did get two more Aeronautic Imperialis aircraft completed – ready to fly with their Thunderbolt wingmen, the pair of Maurdaer Destroyers are now online. Painting in this scale is a real change of pace from 28mm – four base colours, an ink wash and then a drybrush
The rest of my hobby time was eaten up by the arrival of the behemoth knows as Call of Duty Modern Warfare. It’s safe to say, I’m really enjoying it. Technical side, it looks wonderful and the crossplay means I can jump with my buddies on console while using a controller so I don’t get curb stomped.
But more interesting for this blog is the campaign which is packed full of interesting scenarios to borrow ideas from. The game is very definitely Modern warfare – there are several elements of the fictional nation that, if you squint, you will see exactly where they have come from. However, there are also some really interesting setups that you might see at some point on the tabletop – I won’t detail them here as the game has just come out but expect something on it soon.
That’s it for this update, expect more updates next week!
