Anglo-Something Cavalry

| August 7, 2020

As we announced the pre-order of Feudal Patrol(TM), I am still working on painting figures to play Viking games with the nearly complete Viking supplement. I am pretty happy with they came out, and I am anxious to get all these figures on the table soon.

3D Printed Imperial Troop Transport

| August 7, 2020

I ordered a Prusa Mini 3D printer in March. It was on back order until July — unrelated to the plague panic. I have had a chance to print a few items, including this Star Wars Imperial Troop Transport.

A few more Anglo-Somethings to Fight my Vikings

| August 2, 2020

Early this morning I finished few more Anglo-Somethings to fight my Vikings. I have been facetiously calling them “Anglo Somethings,” because I will use them as Saxons, Danes, or whatever is needed for a scenario. These were fun to paint. I am still not sold on plastic figures. I would much prefer to see plastic […]

Someone to Fight the Vikings

| July 31, 2020

I have been in airports the last two weekends on travel for work, so I didn’t get as much done hobby-wise as I would have liked. Still, I managed to get a few things done. Recall that Greg and I purchased large 60-figure bags of Vikings and Anglo-Somethings (Danes? Saxons? Hottentots?) at Cold Wars in […]

More Albedo Armor (or Armour if you prefer)

| July 19, 2020

My kids got me some Albedo Combat Patrol vehicles for my birthday, and I finished painting them up. I decided to paint them in urban ops gray instead of green or brown like the bulk of my ACP 164 equipment. I spray primed with Tamiya gray primer (absolutely the best primer on the planet for […]

A Few More Victrix Vikings Join the Morning Raid

| July 12, 2020

Now, I will start on the Anglo Danes…

Victorix Vikings

| July 12, 2020

We played a long Wars of Ozz game via Zoom yesterday, but I still managed to complete some Viking figures. Greg and I bought a bag of 60 Anglo-Danes and 60 Vikings at Cold Wars 2019 and split the bags. I have completed about half of my Vikings and hope to complete the rest this […]

I Didn’t Accomplish Much Hobby Related this Week

| July 3, 2020

Here are pictures of the few figures I managed to get painted. Much of the week was spent assembling, priming, and basing some Victrix Vikings. Most of the beaches are open in Florida except for particularly hard-hit counties. Tom is allowed to travel up to 100 miles from Ft. Rucker, so we are going to […]

Stuff I Did This Weekend

| June 28, 2020

This weekend I ran a social-distancing Wars of Ozz game to celebrate the launch of our Kickstarter. That chewed up most of Saturday between setup, executing the game, and then cleaning up. Saturday afternoon I worked off some items the honey-do list. I did have time to get some painting done, however. Some months ago, […]
