Cygnar Trenchers Complete

So I finished these trenchers a while ago actually, but never took them off of the dullcote table.

FoW Vietnam: Pattons and ACAVs

Some more FoW Vietnam painted up. Here's some ground forces for my US, although I kinda want to switch to ARVN (Can still use all of this as ARVN support).

Photo Dump: Huzzah 1780 LW Tournament

This past Saturday, we had a 1780 open LW tournament at Huzzah. We had 20 people show up, 10 axis and 10 allies. Overall I think everyone had fun. Lots of good games, lots of good people, and too many doughnuts.
Look at these happy people

Catch-Up Post - Mostly FoW Vietnam

Been fairly busy the past few weeks with work. Actually had to work FOUR days this week - the HORROR. (Don't worry, I've taken a week off to recuperate!)

Painted up four helos for my US Vietnam Air Cav.

Group shot


Got a request from a local cat to borrow three universal carriers for the Huzzah tournament this weekend. Didn't have any painted, but did have about 20 sitting assembled on a shelf from a project long forgotten. Speed painted these up in 40 minutes Friday morning. 

And some early WIP shots of the new Battlefront ACAVs (very nice kit!) and some Pattons.

And last but not least, some pics from some Vietnam games I've been playing with Chris. I'm loving FoW 'Nam - maybe it's just the new game syndrome, but I'm hooked. These pics were from a Tunnel Rats game. Chris was playing Anzak tanks.

Wherever you go, I shall follow!

BOOM - Centurion down to rocket fire.

And more rockets blow an ACAV

PAVN Support Weapons

Finished up the support weapon box and local forces box. Today you get the support weapons. Did not assemble the mortars as I don't expect to use them on the board anytime soon.

Also picked up another box of basic boots, so I can expand the core force a bit and hopefully have a playable army by the weekend.

AA guns. So important, and really the main reason I bought the box. Heres to hoping BF makes them available in single blisters soon so I don't have to keep buying full support weapon boxes for three guns =)

Recoilless rifles. Good for punching APCs.

Army shot so far
