Memorial Day, US Infantry, sheep!

Had some fun tonight basing up the sheep. Haven't applied the field around them yet because I haven't settled on the scene. Probably a trail through a field, we'll see.

I also finished the Peter Pig and Essex 15mm US Infantry figures and started on the Skytrex and QRF figures. I don't want to say too much about the review, so I'll stop there. The paint jobs are pretty good, if I do say so myself.

We posted Escarlata today, and I will be finishing up final edits on the Irregular Miniatures 6mm Battle Set review in a few minutes - soon as I'm done here and write a good morning note to my wife. 

We took a lazy Memorial Day, not too much done - played a game, but I'm ashamed to admit it was a Fantasy RPG, not a Wargame. You'd think on Memorial Day... But The Ninja has a character that he's trying to build up, and we don't have a lot of free days, so we took it.

Anyway, tomorrow night I'll finish up the Sheep and hopefully the Skytrex/QRF figures. That will leave BF, BH, and RR if I'm remembering them all.

Just realized today that I don't have True North Miniatures for the 28mm US and German Infantry reviews. I'll have to order those in the next week or so to get them in.

Finally got through to Stronghold about a six month old order this weekend, we left it up in the air. I was trying to get the figures if possible, but not wanting to leave my money slotted for something that may never come, Mike seemed to be trying not to drive business away without committing to something he can't deliver. I left it with a direct note saying "if you can guarantee shipment by end of July, please keep the order, otherwise, please cancel it, let me know." That should clear it up.

That minor upgrade I made? Yeah, I applied it to add dates to RSS feeds so we could Twitterfeed them... And it whacked our RSS interface completely, darn it. Now I'm going to have to either figure out how to fix it, or do the major upgrade. I was hoping to avoid that. 

Anyway, it's very late. So I'm off for tonight.

Don.
