so far I'm about 3/4 complete on an American infantry battalion for rapid fire. i made a start on my acw cavalry and my Romans but got distracted with some rare TV time.
not that i find much to watch these days. i did watch lost season 5 ep 3, very good twist and turns in it still even after 4 other seasons.
battlestar galactica getting better all the time can't wait for the next episode. life on mars USA version still think they could do better as they are taking it to seriously and not for fun like the British version,
also watched the new underworld film my opinion was crap could do better, didn't even last for hour and a half shame as the first two were very good films, much better was the wrestler bit like the first rocky film in places but very good with an ending leaving you wondering if he is alive or not.
looking forward to outlander as it's supposed to be like alien/predator films.

born to be wild!!!
just added up the total for the month/year so far is 189 figures and 19 vehicles painted.
most of this is made up with valiant minis for eBay in 1/72 scale, 15mm desert ww2 and 28 mm ww2, near future/kill zone types and Romans in 25mm scale.
started today was the next batch of figures another us infantry battalion (valiant miniatures) roman veterans (warlord games) and ACW cavalry (perry miniatures) just cos i fancied doing them, don't know if they will sell or not but i do need practice on horses so we shall see.
so that's another 80 figures (or do i count the horse and rider as 2 figures?) to the years total when finished,
after adding up last years total i estimate over 1000 figures were painted by me with most being done in the second half of the year. we shall have to keep a tab on the amount i get done this year.
these are both 15mm scale from battlefront , most of my 15mm desert is b/f with some peter pig and QRF added in

valiant miniatures new Germans in Normandy painted up for winter war games,
these are not the best from valiant as they have more flash than Gordon but on a plus side they mix in well when cleaned up . and if you look closely the zeltbarns have epaulets on them!!!
as with the other box sets you get plenty of extra bits to add to the bases or to vehicles.

i watched defiance this week, a very good film set in ww2 about the partizans in the east. most impressed by the use of a panzer 3 in the film rarther than a modern tank with a cross painted on it.
