Today the whole Baltimore-Washington area was blanketed by sleet and snow. As a result, work was closed. That gave me time to spend four hours on my consulting job and to shovel a ton of snow. I also had time to finish a couple of small projects I started after I finished painting 16 battalions of 10mm Russian grenadiers for Fate of Battle.
I only watch about three or four hours of television a week. I consistently struggle to find things that we can all watch as a family without worrying about excessive language or people yanking off their clothes. Netflix has been a godsend. Lately we’ve been having fun watching old episodes of the A-Team. The first four seasons are fun. The fifth season isn’t nearly as good.
I got the bug to find the van and paint figures to use in my town of Granville for pulp-style games. The van I found by Ertl on Ebay. The figures are from Foundry. They were fun to paint and a nice diversion after all those white belts and red turn backs.
I’ve also begun picking away at some of the larger Bones figures from Reaper. It was these large figures that enticed me into the Kickstarter project. Many of the regular fantasy figures I ended up selling in the flea market at Historicon. I wanted the larger creatures to work into my GASLIGHT games. This tree monster didn’t take a lot of time or finesse, but I think it turned out okay.
