Progress of a minor note...

So it's been a while. Real Life is still kicking my ass on a regular basis.
I did finally manage to get my airbrush set up and tested it out a little bit.

I am getting familiar with it and already I can see the need for a better gravity feed version.

The siphon feed cheapy I have works, and I should be able to get a decent amount of use out of it, but it's a bit sloppy. I don't know if it's just crappy fitting of the cup, or I just need to work on positioning while painting.

We'll see.

After I get a couple things painted with it I'll post pics.

Life is full of....

Well, life seems to keep my away from gaming. I haven't been able to get any play time in for anything lately. Mainly the holidays, with lots of watching the kids in between.

Things are looking better, as I received more reinforcements for my SoTR 1949 forces.
My US force now has backup in the form of Mecha! I traded with a friend for some AT-43 walkers: 4 Kolossus suits, a Medium and a Heavy mech.

This should give me the ability to vary my support options, or use some models as objectives in games.

Now I need to get back to painting. I did get an airbrush for Xmas, and I'm almost finished picking up doodads and accessories so I can put it to use.

I'm hoping to start familiarizing myself with it next weekend.
We'll see...
