I was able to finish building the remaining ancient ships. Priming and base coat are next.
Well, really not a workbench, more in storage in the cellar until I take them out and do something with them. Anyway, what I am prepping and painting.
For the ancient ships I have finished removing any flashing and have started to glue together:
- 12 Athenian Triremes
- 12 Phoenician Triremes
- 6 Quadremes
- 3 Heptares
For the Babylon 5 ships I have finished removing any flashing and have started to glue together and/or drill mounting holes for a number them including some whitestars, 3 shadow ships, 2 vorlon lt. cruisers and a bunch of earth alliance and minbari capital ships.
And I have put on hold some UK 1/285th armor that I have primed and have applied a base coat to. FV432s, Scorpions/Scimitars/Spartans/etc. I need to get the others built, primed and with a base coat before the cold weather comes.
… peace will not prevail.
War seems to happen when all sides have exhausted their ability to think up imaginative ways of peacefully dealing with their conflict. Seemed like a fitting title for a blog about miniature wargames and a useful counter point to my blog on gaming nonviolent direct action.
The periods I game tend to be:
- 1980s NATO/Warsaw Pact land conflict in Europe (1/285th scale)
- Classical/Hellenistic Greek and Roman naval conflicts (1/900 scale)
- Babylon 5 star ship battles (~1/5000 scale?)
For now there won't be much here until I have more time. Too many miniatures to paint in the little spare time I have.
