I made a last minute change to my French list for this week’s Early War Bolt Action tournament, and decided to finish my Char B1 Bis. This was a very quick turnaround – about four hours not counting prep, priming and drying time. I brush painted it with Vallejo acrylics and weathered it with acrylic washes. The markings are from Warlord and I-94 Enterprises.

In late March my FLGS, Huzzah Hobbies, is holding a weeknight SAGA tournament. I’ve decided to participate by building a six point Monty Python and the Holy Grail themed Crusader army. The first completion is my take on Tim the Enchanter, which I plan on using as a priest. He’s Leisynn, Mercenary Mage from the Reaper Bones Collection. I really phoned in the paint job on him, but I’m a little concerned with the looming deadline. One point down, five to go.
In a few weeks I’ll be participating in a 650 point weekday Bolt Action tournament at Huzzah Hobbies, my FLGS. The theme is Early War and as I’ll be running my French I dug them out for a few photos, including my newly completed Motorized Infantry squad. The regular infantry and cavalry are from Crusader, the MMG Team, Somua S35 and 75mm are from Warlord, the Panhard P178 is from Army Group North and the Motorized Troops are from Battle Honors.
My first completed project of 2015 is a carry over from 2014. These rail fences for my AWI and FIW games were built using some precut wooden (either balsa or basswood) sticks from the craft store. They were glued together with white glue, airbrushed dark brown, given a wash of Vallejo Sepia, dry brushed with Vallejo Yellow Ochre and then finished off with a dry brush of Vallejo Stone Grey.
