Ship Models for BTH2

Well the ships came in and it turns out that they are for the Axis and Allies board game. Not what I really wanted and it explained the great deal I got on them. Oh well. A quick coat of gray paint should get them to be usable.

Went looking to find some but have not found a local store that has the real miniatures yet. But I should come up with something this week.

Bag the Hun 2 Over North Africa

I am really enjoying the 1/600th miniatures from Tumbling Dice. I have painted up 8 P40s and started painting another 8 Hurricanes. I just drilled and added magnets to 12 Bf109Es and another 8 Ju87s. And I base coated these.

Giving into temptation offered by reading about Kev using these, I made a purchase on Ebay of some Axis and Allies ships. I will have to use these for the next game.

Hard Luck Miniatures

Ever have miniatures that bad things kept happening to them? I have a mounted officer and trumpeter of the Lauzon legion that I have dumped on a concrete floor not once but twice now. The officer's horse has broken off at the ankles and the trumpeter has been knocked off of the back of the horse yet again. The other miniature on the table with them - why they are just fine. This pair seems doomed for some reason.

This Land Divided's 8th Month in Print & other nonsense

Well, since its publication in August of 2009, This Land Divided has sold 141 copies! I am quite happy with that. For a campaign that covers a marginal segment of the AWI, that is actually quite good that 141 copies actually sold. I must admit, that this has the best name of any supplement that I have published. I just wish I could take credit for the name (thanks Rich). Hopefully, if I ever finish it, the follow up to it should do a little better as it covers the war in South Carolina. But I have not had any enthusiasm for it at present.

I just finished a campaign for Bag the Hun 2 that covers several of the principal battles between 1941 and October 1942. We will see where that goes.

The only other things in the works are a campaign for Troops, Weapons & Tactics related to the siege of Hill 192 in 1944 and the follow up to This Land Divided.

So, what do you think I should finish first? The Campaign for TW&T or the sequel to This Land Divided?
