Weekend Report; X-wing, Renedra News and Give-away!

I didn't get any hobbywork done during the weekend, but I managed to get some gaming in. Namely X-wing together with the local club Starfighters on sunday. It was a nice afternoon spent together with other Star Wars geeks. Also double nice as my youngest decided to come along.

Me and the Padawan trying to come up with a clever strategy.
We played as a team fielding the forces of Order (Empire) against the vile terrorists outlaws (Rebels) fielding Boba Fett, a Lambda Class shuttle and some protection in the form of a lonely TIE Fighter to provide cover and colourful explosions. Which he did by getting in the way of my shuttle, getting ionized by the revolting rebels and then blown to bits. In the end the Empire prevailed though, order was restored to the galaxy and everybody had fun, which is the important bit.

More US Paratroopers painted.

Hi gang. Been slaving away on my paras and completed a big load of them. I was going to do them six at a time but for some reason I nearly completed six and then I started on the next batch. However as I can't count very well I actually painted nine more... well, here they are.

Half a squad of grunts. Note the poor sods lugging around the browning MG.
More after the break.

Painting table Saturday

There's a thing now on blogger where you show your painting table on Saturday. It was started by Sofie of Sofie's Paint Blog who also drew the nice graphic below.

I have forgotten about it previously, or I wasn't doing any painting on Saturdays, but today I remembered. Too bad I'm not painting,  just doing a lot of assembling. But here goes.

Yep, todays painting table is the kitchen table! 

Jump Off Points for Chain of Command
A wrecked cart and a lot of battlefield debris from Sgts Mess.
Oooh look a motorcycle! That will look spiffing in a ditch!
Until next time.

I'm sorry for the lack of updates, but fear not dear friends, I have been making progress. My work sent me on a three day course out of town. I did bring some paints and some miniatures but I mostly did undercoating and shading work. Too dark in the hotel room to paint properly. When I got back home I was a bit tired of painting US paras so I decided to do some scenery items for a change.

A transformer station. No, not the kind that turns into a giant robot.
