Easy tank assembly

I just realised that last week I promised to bring some 15mm german tanks for a game this thursday so with the utmost haste I found my box of Panzer IV's from the Plastic Soldier Company. Now this is the first time I've tried any of their products, but I have to say I am pleased. The assembly of the Panzer IV ausf. F2/G was fun and quick.

Tomorrow when I get my camera found I'll post some pics of the tanks as well as a lot of other ongoing projects...

Something new from Strange Aeons

Something very neat coming up for those that are into Strange Aeons. If you go to the Lead Adventure forum you will see that Strange Aeons is going to start up a program of sorts which is lifetime membership of Cult of the Black Goat which will earn you a T-shirt and an annual miniature. I know I'll be waiting anxiously to join the fun and the quest for world domination ;)

For those of you that don't know Strange Aeons, then it is a very nice little skirmish game based around the Cthulhu mythos and the works of H.P. Lovecraft. It basically pits the protagonists which are a group of special Treshold agents against the evil lurkers. Lurkers which may be everything from lowly cultists to demons and things men were not meant to see or even know about. It's fast paced I would say with the option of character development for the Treshold team, allowing them to face more and more sinister creatures. More info can be found and the website and LAF (see the links section).

A Little Progress

So finally got a few weapons and shields mounted on the vikings, however the spears especially suffers from flashings and seems a little below par in the casting. Still the minis are a joy to assemble, fairly decent fits and possibility to add weapons of choice to most of the poses. Most of the bondi however seems most correct with spears, as it should be, so no complaints there.

So that didn't really kick of very well

Well all the best intentions and nothing came out of that initial attempt to get a blog going. Anyways, time for round 2 here in 2012. So far there are a few projects already competing for my attention (and this is only the miniature related projects) but I guess I'll try to spread my time a little over them.

First of all I'm eagerly awaiting some 28mm napoleonics from Perry Miniatures. Some french line infantry and som calavry, then we're going to give Black Powder and perhaps Waterloo from Warhammer Historical a spin.

Secondly I took the opportunity at Horisont III in November to stock up on Dystopian Wars so now I have two fleets lying ready for priming and painting. However, while they are in "dry-dock" they have gained the full attention of my son who finds it so very fun to play with daddy's warships...playing AND learning, for we have now discovered that ships are not just ships, but there are frigates, cruisers and battleships (or well the equivalent danish words at least), so for now I think I'll let him have his fun with the DW minis.

Finally, and this one just put all my other projects on hold. SAGA vikings, these I just have to get painted ASAP. Currently the minis are based and tonight I hope I might add weapons to the hands of the brave and fierce vikings.
