It's good to be back...

Good news, I passed my certification exam for work so I'm able to spend time on Flames of War again. Woohoo! It's good to be back and focus on something recreational for a change.  It has been almost three months.

I spent the day continuing to base my DAK army, and hope to have it completed by the end of next weekend.  In between, I'll start basing the 8th Army.  The DAK pioneers are going to have to wait since the new Battlefront figures came out and I would like to use them.  I originally had used a combination of DAK Grenadiers and Heer Grenadier Pioneers, but I'll incorporate the new ones somehow.  I'm hoping to have two armies painted for my first game at home with my son, and my first battle report to be posted during the week between Christmas and New Year.  I plan on giving Steve's at WWPD Batrepper software a try.

In the future for North Africa:

DAK:   Finish basing and add vehicle transfers.  Glue and paint new Pioneers.
8th Army:  Finish basing and paint tanks.  Glue four more 25 lbrs and paint so I can Stonk and Murder.
Bersaglieri:  Finish gluing tanks and paint.  Base figures.
