Thunder Along The Mississippi........Part 5


Much brushwork has taken place - certainly on the ironclad contingent - and I am at the tidying up 'twixt metal and woodwork stage on all those that have some wood on display i.e. NOT the monitors! I am hoping to have this lot ready for early next week with the added bonus that I have already started the sail elements - they are lovely models and will look nice on the tabletop. The whole collection will be finished by mid August at the latest and I then need to look at the land side. I have a pretty radical idea for this - details of which will be forthcoming once I have the mock ups ready. I also have yet to decide on the rules but there is no immediate rush for this either. The stuff for the land side, should my plans work out, will only take a couple of weeks to complete so September will see the OGRE project tackled - prior to starting at college.

DC -if you havent seen them before, run DONT WALK, to Spartan Games and check out the Shroud mage line of models. VSF monitors and ironclads...

I must confess that painting them has been quite an enjoyable experience and I hope to have them on screen over the next few days. My other small order arrived and the Gloire that I shall be using for USS New Ironsides is a truly lovely model.

They do look very nice - as for disposal of items my collection has been pared to the bone so it will be body parts next!
