Turned out that I didn't start painting the last tanks today. Instead I mowed the lawn and went food shopping (it echoes in the fridge after a week abroad). But, I just splashed some paint on my new little "diorama" piece (mainly for taking photos of my tanks), and added some watereffects. I've decided to make a couple of small dioramas just for getting the right touch when I start building a couple of gamingboards.

The first gamingboard will be, oddly, 90x90cm set in France, Bocage terrain-style. Last night me and my girlfriend watched some Band of Brothers episodes, (just because it's the next best tv-series after Twin Peaks and because I feel that it's one of those that you can watch whenever you feel like it and you still love it, just like "Lost In Translation"!), and I got some nice terrain ideas. So I'll start a gamingboard as soon as I'm ready for it.

Well back to the importent part.
As I only have the "Open Fire" starter, I decided to order some miniatures, and start adding infantry aiming to get a playable 600 points force.
First out will be the Germans...

This is what I decided to get:
GERMAN Company HQ (Late)
GERMAN Grenadier Platoon (Late)
GERMAN Armour Paint Set (I already have a few colors here, but wtf...)
GERMAN Infantry Paint Set (Same here...)
ART OF WAR II Book (Is this any good?)

I still have time to change the order, and I'm in doubt if I should get the "D-Day" book or not.
I guess I'll have the night, probably even the weekend, to sleep on it before they ship it...
Or what would YOU suggest me to get?

  1. Sounds good. As far as the D-Day book goes. It really is just a resource book. There are no army lists in it. Just information on the battles, a few scenarios, and some rules for things like bocage. It isn't critical unless you're planning on campaigning the D-Day landings.
