My first priority is to work on Japanese figures for Bolt Action. I have a box of Warlord Imperial Japanese Infantry, along with an 81mm mortar, Medium Machine Gun team. Hopefully that will provide enough figures to provide a good opponent for my Australians.
I’m planning some more solitaire gaming this summer. Although unlike last summer’s solo game, this year I’m going to try out the solitaire boardgame Silent Victory.
For extra-credit this summer, if I get the Japanese figures done as quickly as hoped, then I’m thinking about painting up some figures for Osprey’s En Garde rules. I have some old Swordplay! Figures from Task Force Games (back when they were trying to do something besides Star Fleet Battles miniatures). I’ve got about a dozen figures, which I’m hoping will give a couple small forces to skirmish around with.
Finally, to add a few more photos to the blog entry, I thought I’d post some photos of the Imperial Assault figures I’ve painted up. A while ago I picked up a used copy of the Imperial Assault game. I haven’t had much of a chance to play it, but I decided to go ahead and paint up the figures. I just used block painting followed by an application of stain (essentially the dip method, although I use brushes instead of the dip). This was a nice little diversion project done while I was painting up other stuff for Enfilade. The figures turned out pretty well (although I left a little too much stain on Luke, so he turned out a little dark, but not Dark Side).
