Next up is a rather simple project that took very little time but turned out well. It is a power generator for shields or remote stations etc. This is made from two Hubba Bubba gum strip packages and two bits from my bit box. I may add some decals at a later time but she is ok for now.

I have dusted off some old figs and have been painting them. I am surprised with the 8th Edition of Warhammer Fantasy Battle that the Bretonnians have not received a new Army book since 2003. I used earthy tones for the archers along with blue and off white for them as this will be the same colors on their command flag. I am repainting and painting my army with just a couple of colors. Some units will be Blue & White, some Red & white and a few others Red & Blue. I scratch built the archer stakes with balsa strips, skewers, and plastic card to the bottom of the balsa wood to add a bit of strength. Once I get my hands on 10 metal squire archers I will make two more stake bases. I am going to attempt to build some braziers from scratch.

FIW Indians & Pallisade

I haven't blogged in a while and I haven't gamed in a bit either. I have just recently finished 18 Conquest Miniatures woodland indians. I scratch built the pallisade from skewers and balsa wood. I did it in sections and learned stuff along the way. I wish I had built the gate first but oh well. It does open and close. I may add a firing step eventually but for it is good. The nice thing about the pallisade is that I can use it for ancients up to the wild west. Let me know what you all think.
