Carrying on-Some good bits and some failure.

Well I got on with the campaign preparation and there were some good bits and not so good bits.

Not so good bits. I really dropped the ball with my dry brushing and got this!

These require a repaint.

On the mediocre side, I went a bit mad with the Lady Jessica and got this.

Further meritocracy, I needed some civilians, I had some Imex American Pilgrims and pressed them into service. They're out of era but I don't think that badly.

On the plus side I managed to finalise the house rules for the adventure and sort out the PEFs as well as building a map the actions.

What did I learn from this week?

You need to keep on top of your modelling and painting skills. As it is not far off a year since I did anything you really loose the knack. I'm hoping to start my campaign next week but I may try a couple of experiment games to get back into it and I don't want another failure week.

Keep your skills up and thanks for popping by.

Let's get back on topic.

Well after that brief sojourn I spent the last couple of days trying to get back on line with my current project.

I cracked on with the main characters for my tale.

They need: washing, dry painting, varnishing and generally tarting up. You'll meet them all, individually, as their adventure develops.

The Lady Jessica got a bit of extra modelling which I wasn't intending to do, but a lick of paint and I don't think she'll look too shabby.. Do I build a more significant role for her, she was just to appear in one episode.

Anyway, a bit more rule building to do this week. But first off to the big city for my eldest's driving theory test and (hopefully) a celebratory Chinese with the family.

I forgot how enjoyable modelling and posting is. Thanks for visiting.
