SAGA game report 11-28-12

I got a game in with my friend George before I had to go to work, though tired as I was the game went pretty quickly. It was a 6pt game, after moving towards one another for about 2 turns George made his move with his Norman warrior knights into my one of my Viking units. Deflecting this attack I quickly dispatched his Calvary unit with 2 close combat attacks in a row.

Later I make a brave attack up the middle crushing another unit of norman spearman on foot. In the end his Warlord was all alone with no friends about, running in with my Warlord and Hearthguard I crushed into him and barely did enough to take him out. Victory for the Vikings1

Close up shots of Leviathan ships painted

I figure to start off with my new webcam to take photos and videos of miniature painting I have done or will be doing. Here are some pictures I have taken of my Leviathans ships.

Goals and ideas for finishing off my French Battleship

Oh I so hate the little cannons that are bent or broken, I am in search of brass barrels to replace the lot, though I am unable to find a small enough one but the search continues. I do think I can make this one set I have been eyeing online for awhile that may work out.

So the goals I have thus far left to do for this ship (in no given order)
1. fix broken mast (either pin or replace completely)
2. work on the wiring for the mast area once my online order comes in (and paint)
3. clean up the over paint and paint lines
4. paint the anchors, I really don't know what to paint them. Perhaps black?
5. varnish and seal
6. waiting for my new webcam to come in so I can do a small video to show how it looks and post that online.
7. the smoke stacks look off just being all black, will have to do a highlight on the edges to make it stand out better.
8. I still have to work on the metallic parts and finish those off, they really are not suppose to look like they are right now. Including the bottom area which is a total mess.

Things I want to do:
1. find a good looking railing to put onto the ship.
2. why stop at one, I want to put port holes on the superstructure and perhaps replace the fighting tops entirely.
3. ladders
4. put in little AA guns
5. decal number on ship

WIP Leviathans French Battleship part 2

A updated picture of my French Battleship I have been finishing up. Silly little mast section broke off that I tried to pin, but now will have to try again.  So for now here is a new picture as I come closer to finishing the paint job.
