logo's for the local leagues

For the past few years I have had a couple of project that I have not followed up due to timing and family issues and of coarse being lazy. One was customising fields for local BB leagues. I have also done some logos for these teams as well. I have lost some of the art between computers but here are a couple. I have some more as well that need to be finished.

Pinky swear!!!

Well I made a promise to myself not to spend any money on anymore miniatures. Mainly due to the fact that I have hundred of miniature that are unpainted.

That lasted about a week...

I have found that I seem to collect more than anything else now. I have tried to traded off or sell some over the past few months. But yesterday I bought a Warhammer 40k Imperial Sentinel. Not because I have a 40K imperial army. Well I don't! I bought it for a Weird WW2 project, in the vain hope that I might play it at some stage. Due to a large amount of 28mm WW2 figures I have got.

The Sentinel will be an American War walker of some type yet undisclosed. I have also been trying to get some AT-43 Mechanoids for German and Russian Walkers. I have seen a lot or Weird WW2 stuff out there but Dream Pod 9 with their Blitz Krieg game was the influence for me.

Movies that have influenced my gaming....

I have always been a sucker for a good war movie. Some of the older classics are still my favourites.

There is no particular order and the what I can remember:

Kelly's Hero's.
Where the Eagles Dare.
The Eagle has landed.
The Bridge to far.
The Battle of Britain.
Battle of the Bulge.
The Dirty Dozen 1 & 2.
The Great Escape.
The Guns of Navarone

I'm sure there are many more and happy to have some to be added.

A couple of more pic's from the phone.

These guys are hopefully for a range of games. A friends has talked about some zombie related skirmishs. So the top picture are SWAT, the next are miniatures from Eureka, Some Russians in Chemical suits and some German Bundeswehr. So hopefully they will get a bit of use one day.

Some pics from my phone.

I took these a few months ago before I moved. None are finished at this stage and nothing more has been done so far. These are ust some of my Germans, a mixture of different unit types. I really need to get onto them and finish at least some of them off.
Some more pics to follow later.

One of the Distractions.

As mentioned before I do get distracted. This is my current time waster, Company of Heros. The first and second one. Not historically correct etc... But a nice game none the less. Also the Brothers in Arms is also a good one.
I'm in the process of organising some pics of my rather large pile of unpainted miniatures to get the scope of what I am up against........

Coming soon....hopefully

The reason for doing this is that I have recently moved from an apartment to a house which has allowed me to have my own gaming room where I don't have to pack up a project I'm working on every time as I did in the apartment. My wife has been understanding but there are limits....

So I am trying to organise some small bite size projects to get me back into the swing of things. I have plenty of half painted miniatures hanging around, terrain to construct and some graphic work as well.

I really need to get my Human Bloodbowl team finished for MBBL. We are 2 games into the season and only got the base colours done....

I went mad on 28mm WW2 figures that are there as well which I am dying to use.... The list is quite extensive which I will work out later.

I will hopefully start to put some images up when I have something decent to show. (Well decent maybe a to strong a word...)
