First of the 15mm

Last night I finished the first batch of my 15mm sci-fi minis.

These are from Rebel Minis, Earth Force Marines Infantry line.

Next up is some bases for my Mayday Basic Impetus game.

Had some friends over last night for a couple games of Imperial, published by Rio Grande Games.

The game was roundly enjoyed by everyone. The game came handle 2-6 players, we played with 4. Post game discussion came to the conclusion that 2 players would be rather dull and 6 players would be a long dull grind. Four players is probably optimal. I look forward to playing this game again.

Quick Update

Been a while since I've posted anything. Presently I have 48 15mm infantry to base and then they're done, hopefully this weekend I can get that done. I've also finished assembling the remaining units for my Mayday game. Prime tomorrow and then I'm off to the painting races.

I might also be playing another game of WFB in late April against Dave and his High Elves. Need to do something for that to try and deal with the Always Strike First as it's harsh and in the hands of Swordmasters is just plain grotesque. I think the solution for dealing with these guys is either use a greater daemon of Slaanesh or shoot them as they have got to be some of the best infantry in the game.

I'm also having some friends over tomorrow evening for a game or two of Imperial by Rio Grande Games. If I remember I'll post up a pic.

Last Daemons & Next Project

Tonight I finished the last of my Daemons, till I get my hands on a Bloodthirster and a Keeper of Secrets. This final batch is a unit of 5 Flesh Hounds.
Now that I'm done Daemons, I'm about to start on my next project. I've got two projects to start. First, is to finish the bases I need for my Basic Impetus game for Mayday. Off the top of my head I have at least 3 bases to do and about 7 weeks to do them, so I'm going to put this one off.

That leaves me with starting my big project for the year - 15mm sci-fi. I'm planning on doing three armies to go with my Full Thrust units: a Chinese Union army, a US army and an alien army. The first army I'm going to do is the Chinese Union army. I've got all the minis assembled and waiting to be primed.

The vehicles are all Ground Zero Games and are from the Hi-Mobility Wheeled Battleforce.
The infantry are all from Rebel Minis Earth Force Marines line. Not having painted 15mm before, I'm looking forward to knocking these off hopefully rather quickly.
