Belated updates - ASOAIF and Bolt Action

 I have been hobbying and playing for the past two months (although FTF gaming is over for the time being, thanks Omicron!), but seem to have lost my will to post on my blog. So, here are some belated updates.

Tully Sworn Shields:

Savage Cave Dwellers and some NCUs

Commandos for my Bolt Action British:

Bolt Action French - these are Crusader with a 3d printed flamethrower ordered from Etsy:

Wargames Atlantic (nice figs!!) Senegalese for my Bolt Action French army:

Sidekick for the flamethrower - I thought the cigarette nicely complements the gas mask

And some Warlord Games New Kingdom Egyptians for something different:

And some shots of the 13.5mm ACW project - cavalry from Kallistra to go with the Warlord Epic troops

Epic ACW and back to some Bolt Action

The blog has been quiet for a couple of reasons - house renovations mean I don't have a hobby room ready yet, but also it's been busy and I have fallen out of a blogging routine. However, I should keep it up if for no other reason - it helps me keep track of projects!

I finished enough Epic ACW to run a Kernstown battle scenario in Black Powder in a couple of weeks with some new gaming buddies. Here they are:

960 Union infantry with guns and cavalry:

Plus another 600 Conferates:

I have also fell in with a weekly Bolt Action group, and have so far managed about an even record of winning and losing (actually more draws than anything else yet). But this has inspired me to do a few new models to reinforce my Soviets:

And I am still doing ASOIAF - even though I have nobody to play it with, here are the Boltons (Neutrals)

And another 220 Yanks

Last of the free folk and some Epic ACW

 Here we have some War Mammoths - which are great models but complete rubbish in ASOIAF, and some Thenn Warriors to round out my Free Folk for now.I think they were designed for contrast paint!

And three frames of the Epic ACW starter set from Warlord games. 300 done, another 2100 to go! But hey - troops on strips paint up pretty quick. I used contrast paints on the Rebs and conventional style on the Yanks.
