2016 wasa busy year IRL so I didn’t get much hobby stuff done. My biggest gaming achievement was running my first megagame, something I have wanted to do for a long time, so that is ticked off the list. Part of this year will be spent planning another megagame for 2018.
The SCW stuff stayed in their boxes so that needs to be rectified this year. Other plans include more naval (starting with the Russo- Japanese War) and some operational level gaming. Continuing with the 6mm Cold War project too.
Still I shall see what happens, hobby stuff is meant to be fun and not forced.
I’ve got these finally finished off since the new year (I’ll also do a looking forward/ looking backward post tomorrow) so I thought I’d do a big photo dump of a post to get them out there:
First up- a 6mm sized ruined factory made from bit of resin I got from a private seller on the Lead Adventure Forum.
A small house from Leven miniatures, again in 6mm.
A barricade from S and S model scaled for 20mm. I’m tempted to give the bus some more weathering.
A Armourfast 1/72 Valentine converted to a Bishop with an S and S aftermarket part; the short coming of the Armourfast suspension are evident in the photo more than in real life. I may yet do some remedial work on them.
A cheak FAI 1/72 diecast repainted and decaled into a Finnish scheme.
A trio of 1.72 Rhodesian Bush War vehicles from S and S.
A Rhodesian SAS conversion of a Unimog,
An armoured lorry.
Another Unimog conversion; this time a mortar carrier. I’ll add the crew at a later date.
Three diecast 1/72 BTR60PBs.
Firstly a simple repaint.
One converted into a command variant BTR60PAU, conversion kit by S and S.
Repainted with infantry seated on the outside Afghan style (they considered mines a bigger risk than snipers). Infantry by S and S again.
In the last quarter I:
Painted 1 28mm figure, finished 4 1/72nd scale vehicles and read 33 books.
Over the last year I have:
painted 91 20mm, 1 28mm, 104 6mm and 24 15mm figures; built and painted 12 1/72nd kits, 73 1/300th vehicles and 2 1/1200th boats.
Also I have read 108 books.
Totals have been down compared to previous years but I’ve been finishing of my MA.
Happy New Year btw; I’ll do a plans for 2017 post soon.
