Carthage arrives!

After breif negociations at Drums last weekend, a Later Cathagian army has join my ranks of DBA armies. And they brought 2 elephants!
They need a little clean up and repair, and I am planning on doing a little work on the bases.
This brings my feildable DBA armies to 3. And I only have 4 waiting for paint...hmmm.

With my recent change to fully employed status, I think I will be hiring more DBA armies while I focus on painting the ships.

Drums at Fort Miegs 2010

Here are some pictures of the games that were going on at Drums this year.

I played in the afternoon DBA tournament and placed 3rd. This continues to be a great little convention with really nice games and great people to play with.

The Ocean arrives!

The HMS Aeolus is now at sea!
There are a couple more touchups and to brush on some clear coat over the touchups.
Next is the sails for the HMS Shannon.
This coming weekend is Drums at Ft. Meigs convention, so no miniature work.

HMS Aeolus gets standing rigging

Here she is with the standing rigging in place.
Still needs some paint touch ups from the rigging work and painting the base.
This took most of a day to do. I hope to get faster as I get more done.
I hope to be done with this one this week.

Then only 9 more to go after this for the 1812 event.

next weekend is the Drums at Fort Miegs convention. I hope to play some DBA and once again defend to honor of Michigan in the Michigan-Ohio war.

Here are 2 shots of the HMS Shannon in process.
The first is from a few days ago and then second is from a few minutes ago.
The hull just needs some final touchups and then on to the masts.
