The ACW project is progressing nicely ... many new units are being added with more underway. I'm hoping that between Roy Scaife and me we'll be playing ACW Black Powder in 2-3 months with a couple of large brigades a side. My Afrika Korps army arrived back from Artmaster Studio ... and they look awesome. Once I get them based up I'll be posting some pictures ... then I have to get the DAK armour completed. I need to send off my Desert Rats next to Artmaster to keep that ball rolling forward. A lot of new terrain from 4Ground has also shown up for me ... some WW2, Roy picked up the SAGA "Great Hall" and I have a butt load of the new 10mm Urban Zone buildings for use with Robotech RPG Tactics (more on this below). The DundraCon gaming convention is coming up in February and I'm on track with my projects for that con. I'll be running my Pegasus Bridge game there as well as a Dead Man's Hand bank robbery game. Roy will be running some SAGA battles in the great hall to round things out. Brecourt Manor, which we wanted to run, has moved out ... I need more time to work on the trenches, artillery crew and gun positions. Hopefully we'll have that up and running in May. Here are some pictures of the DAK figures from Artmaster ... as you'll see below Toby does outstanding work. All figures are Perry Miniatures except for the two motorcycles which are from Warlord Games.

The great thing about having a reliable painting service is that you can still make progress, even when you are too busy to paint yourself! While I was away my Robotech RPG Tactics stuff arrived ... so I'll be posting about that later today. I'm also looking forward to getting back to making episodes for GameTime.
