So what have I been painting? Well the past few months have not been very productive. I have managed to paint some Peter Pig 15mm Spanish Civil War figures. I am painting these with the intent of using them as both Spanish Civil War forces and as the base for my fictional Latin American 1930's nations. The South American project is based on a war between a republic and dictatorship in the 1930's over control of a third weaker country. I have been developing these three nations for years and at one point even painted some 6mm modern figures for them. About a year ago I decided to move the idea to the 1930's (I think 1890's would also be cool like a Great Pacific War type of thing), so I can use all the cool 1930's equipment. I hope to get pictures up as soon as I have some stuff based.

I also placed and received an order from Reinforcements by Post for a 6mm Baccus SYW starter army. Those following the blog know that I have built French, British and Austrians (well bought the Austrians), so I thought the natural next step was to get some Prussians. These figures will form the base for my Prussian force which will be expanded as I think I will need many Prussians since they will probably be fighting either Austrians and French or Austrians and Russians once I get some Russians painted. A good thing is that I now have some nice matches and can even do some WAS with the Austrians against the French in Italy. Just need some more of the great timecast Italian terrain.

A few pictures of the new terrain I have been sampling. I purchased these boards from a company called TerraScapes http://terranscapes.com/products/playingsurfaces.php.
I think they are very nice especially with 6mm figures. As soon as I get some extra cash I am going to put together an order for a few more. As usual you should be able to enlarge the pictures by clicking on them.
