A group effort has led to the completion of our first pieces of bocage! It's only a matter of time before we have enough for a Normandy scenario! I'm tired, so I'll let the others update this post with more information...

LotRO Tuesday Nights

The Dale Wardens return to Eriador on Tuesday nights starting around 8:00pm (Central). That's around 4:00am Wednesday morning if you happen to live in Cairo.

Next week - Tom Bombadil. Rumor has it Tom remembers the first raindrop and the first acorn...he knew the dark under the stars when it was fearless - before the Dark Lord came from Outside.

FoW US Rifles

This is my first FoW Army, US Rifle Company! Many of the pieces are not complete, and I have plenty more to add, but I thought I would go ahead and post what I have (2 Combat Platoons, 1 Weapons Platoon, 5 Stuarts, several Bazooka Teams and a US HQ Objective Marker).

Here's a closer look at a command stand. I used basic block colors with a magic wash. It gives pretty good effects for the time invested. However, it does leave a little shine that the dull coat doesn't quite get rid of...

JR - Flames of War US HQ

This is my 'almost complete' US HQ. I still plan on applying a little flock or tufts, I just haven't figured out how I want it to look.

I used 22 gauge wire to pin the officer and sentinel to the base. The officer just about lost a leg in the process, but a little wire and glue fixed him up.

It took a couple attempts on the rocks (which I originally thought were just sandbags) to get something I was happy with. I was attempting to make the rocks consistent, assuming they were all from the same area. However, they are all rounded, implying that they were probably river rocks which would be varied in color.
