Interesting Giveaway

There is an interesting giveaway offer that Gunners Wargaming is doing. Take a look at his site. The giveaway is for his birthday. A very cool idea. It is one that is worthy of copying. I put in my entry. You should too.

Terrain for the Ukraine

I have been batting around the idea for a sunflower field for a while now.  So i decided to attempt to make one.  I used a sewing pin, a post it note, a piece of green paper and some tacky glue for a proof of concept.  This is the result.

The miniatures are WWI Russians that still need a little dullcote.  Let me know what you think.

Progress and tinkering

Well, I managed to secure a copy of Luoni's "La Pasubio Sul Fronte Russo". This is the book I have been hunting for. Hopefully I can get started on this and make some more progress on my CSIR campaign.

Next, I think I have finally figured out how to make sunflower fields. I will attempt this by taking sewing pins and wrapping them in green flower tape. Use a bit of the tape to make a leaf or two. Then take some yellow paper to form the sunflower. Pierce this upon the pin. Bend the pin head down a bit and paint it black. I will try this later today.
