Work at the painting desk slowed considerably this week. "Slowed" is an understatement. "Stopped in its tracks" is more like it. After having spent a week on vacation, I returned only to be hit by a debilitating flu with complications. With very infrequent and short sessions, a second unit of U.S. Volunteer infantry makes its way off the workstation.
The figures are Old Glory and bring the total U.S. infantry to 60. I may be getting close to giving a small SAW game a try. I plan to continue working SAW figures into the painting queue and a unit of U.S. cavalry will be finding their way into the queue soon.
The volunteers are wearing a mix of trousers but all have the ubiquitous blue shirt.
Next off the painting desk will likely be a large handful of 15mm WWII German paratroops. The 15mm WWII project has not seen much (any) activity since the beginning of 2014 so why not give it a boost? What prompted a return to this project? Well, Peter Pig recently held a sale and I was sorely tempted. Upon reflection figured I ought to burn down the pile a bit before bringing in new recruits. What? I passed sale? It must be my weakened state of mind and body.
BTD USA is holding a 50% discount sale too and I thought I had made it without buying anything. I received an email, however, this morning stating that the sale had been extended through Monday. Oh, the pressure...
