This is the first time I've experimented with using Static Grass (yes, I'm bit slow on the uptake!). I'v seen some great looking results and I've seen some bases that look like the figures were mugged by a tennis ball so wasn't sure if I'd like the result or not. I mixed the bright green (which I hate) with some of the autumnal one and also added a bit of woods scenics medium turf for good measure. Am fairly happy with the result.
Still, this isn't helping to get my French started!
I also think I've settled on the para force for the Masters.
|1x||Para HQ + 2x bazooka||70|
|3x||57mm AT guns + jeep||125|
|3x||105mm Artillery (CT)||90|
|4x||Shermans (2x fireflies)||390|
The main change is swapping the glider infantry (155 pts) for 7x Guards infantry, the main reason for this being that the guards are veteran so harder to hit- not sure if this is the right way to go but want to at least try this version out. The infantry can be justified as a platoon sent to protect the Shermans.
I also hope to get a game of Impetus in vs Kent soon- its been delayed a couple of times- such as for the game with Steve last week. The guys at the club are playing Rapid Fire in 1/300th tomorrow so might turn up for a look see.
Kent has ordered a truck load of 28mm Western figures and has a few figures for my own posse so it looks like we will be dabbling in yet another era/ruleset.
Other news- we are starting to plan for next years Day of Days event and its looking like we'll run Firestorm Market garden. Numbers are already looking very promising.
