May 2012

Good hobby progress this month. I finished the 1st part of my imagi-ancients/fantasy project by painting all the on hand lead and rebasing the mixed batch of ancients figures I bought to serve as enemies to my forces. Part 2 of this project will be in adding fantasy elements. This is a Pandora's box of a project as there are so many nice fantasy figures out now in 15mm.

Started work on the 100 or so sci-fi figures on hand...plan to have them done before Historicon in mid-July.

I also broke down and bought 10 units (5 cav, 5 inf) for my Katzenstein project. I want to paint them as motivation to begin texturing/flocking my Katzenstein forces this Fall.

44 x cavalry: 88 points
3 x character figures: 3 points

Plus rebased the ancients.

TOTAL: 91 points

1 x Tomorrow's War with my son

Registered for a total of 13 games for Historicon with my son.

Project Update

Finished 4 cavalry units and 3 character figures to complete the imagi-ancients project. I plan to transform this into a fantasy project in the future. 1st purchases will probably be Gnomes and Halflings from Splintered Light Miniatures at Historicon.

I am now flocking the bases on the painted ancients figures I bough and will be done that by the end of the weekend.

Next up will be about 100 Khurasan sci-fi figures that I want to get done before Historicon.

I am also contemplating adding 5 infantry and 5 cavalry units to my Kingdom of Katzenstein imagi-nation forces before I start a major basing/flocking project later this year.
