I bought some 6mm yanks from Heroics and Ros a while ago and have been struggling to work out how to paint them. I didn't just want to paint them green, done that before and it's boring. I got some inspiration from a few friends and the Internet and this is what I've done.
MLRS and support
The HQ stand
Sub commanders, forward observers
Lav-25 AT units
Lav-25 mortar units
Now to do the inf.
I used to do my inf on 30mmx15mm bases but this time I'm going to use 30mmx30mm bases, like the vehicles. It gives me a bit more space to work with and looks better
Back from worlds and finally time to sit down. Been a busy week at work and haven't had time to do much other than fix stuff at work.
Worlds was great, martin, the organiser, put on a great event with a really good location and venue. The venue was bright and spacious, it was only a 10walk from he hotel and it had German wine on tap! Local red wine.......
I had six good games, four swedes, one 30years war French and one league of Augsburg. The 30years war French were my only loss, I had to beat Ben to win the comp and just couldn't break him. Should have pulled back rather than keep trying. Something for next time.
So, things for next year, don't expect to do well at Britcon if you have a raging head cold.
I ended up 10th, five draws and a big win.
It was a funny comp, I lost my voice on the first game and resorted to passing notes to my opponents to communicate. As you expect, no sympathy at all! Lots of friendly heckling like " Hey Simon, whats the rule for this?" "Come on, speak up!".
the runners and riders for the Worlds being hosted in Koblenz.
Its a smaller comp, but its in Germany, so, beer anyone?
