Like I had nothing left to paint ....

Sometimes you don't see a single miniature for over a month, and then all of a sudden they start to appear out of nowhere. I had that same experience today.

This morning I bought a standard ogre box to create the maneater mordheim warband. Some greenstuff required but that will be all fine. I already assembled parts of them today, removing a little of the points where the ogre's where attached on the sprue. Also they all have their slippers on and are ready for combat.

So what happened when I emailed Arjan to check if the Open Fire box was already in? Indeed, "it's on my desk a.t.m.".

That's even MORE to paint :D . I made a deal with arjan where I could have the rulebook and the US troops (though they are mostly Brits in the box), along with some counters and dice, where Arjan would have the rest. We split the cost and all was well.

I am a bit dissapointed with the build quality of the tanks though. The entire left side, top and bottom are great, but the right side is completely out of shape, for all the tanks (did not assemble the FireFly yet). Have to do a lot of shaving there. Also a lot of greenstuff required, but ah well.

All in all.... painting and assembly time!

  1. Sad to hear the tanks are a bit 'pre-battle-damaged'.. You could try sending the Battlefront guys a mail, they do have a great reputation in the field of 'recovery'..

    With holliday season starting in a few weeks you'll have the time painting all this stuff before our campaigns in Mordheim (?) and Flames (!??) will start.

    Can't wait to meet you at the battefield!
