Been kindova slow week on the hobby front. I suppose that the combination of getting pasted in the tournament last Sunday & the nice weather this week has really dulled my enthusiasm for a few days. As you can see from the photo, my first Storm Warden tac. squad is nearing completion. Need to add the lightning bolt & squad # decals, give 'em a bath in Delvan Mud, then some touch ups, highlights, flock & they'll be done.
In the foreground, you can also see my sole remaining mini from Classic Battletech, a Maxim infantry transport. Lately there seems to be a sudden interest in resurrecting the game locally. Murl's all over it, whereas I recall selling everything as he didn't want to play anymore & I had no other opponents. Well that, and the contents of the Total Warfare box was garbage IMO (though via ebay, I made a handsome profit on selling those contents off...).
Anyways I've been resisting the urge to return to the game, but as anyone that knows me will tell you, that effort is probably a futile one. At one time (lumping all of the factions & their myriad paint schemes together) I could field a combined arms regiment (Mechs, tanks & Infantry) as well as an additional reinforced tank regiment. Whereas currently I just have the IFV above & a platoon of infantry using old EPIC Imperial Guardsmen who amusingly they can be armed with lasers...
I had never put any of my hordes of tanks on bases, but finding one on the bitz box, I decided to just for shits & giggles. I built up the center with plasticard & filled in the gaps with LGS. No idea what I would paint it as since literally every faction in CBT has access to it. Oh wait, I'm supposed to be resisting that urge...
