Sally Forth's Terra Formers

Over on the Wargames Website, I have a thread documenting the ongoing saga of my experience with Sally Forth's terra formers - mdf frames designed to 50mm 47mm thick polystyrene; it is here:

Anyway, I've just posted an update to it:

Fighting 15s Sale Now Over & What I've Been Doing

Well I took another shot at Fighting 15s OO sale (now over) and the results arrived yesterday - a whole stack of 3mm ACW that I intend (at some point in the far future) to use with my Aeronef & Land Ironclads for a Horizon Wars VSF / ESF (Victorian Sci-Fi / Edwardian Sci-Fi) game.

Well, it's a cunning plan anyway ...

At the moment, I am actually painting figures - 15mm in fact!  I've caught a Conan-style fantasy bug from the efforts of Mike on the Wargames Website - his posts are very inspiring.

My efforts will be more fantastical than Mike's have been though, as I've got Skeletons, Beastmen and Lizardmen antagonists.  Not sure what rules I'll use but I'm thinking of Pulp Alley at the moment.

I'll update more, and maybe even post some pictures (!), at some point ...

But don't hold your breath :(

This week, I have been mostly ...

... suffering the effects of a hiatus hernia (which gives me constant trapped wind & general feeling of malaise) & reading, although I have painted some of my 15mm fantasy

I got a tatty copy of Starship Troopers by Robert Heinlien from Amazon - which I'm going to return (although I've read it first!) and I'm now onto the Complete Hammer's Slammers Vol1, which is good so far ...

Starship Troopers though, was absolutely excellent IMO, and I'd recommend it to everyone
