With my budget cut (I need to spare money to survive) this month is mainly about repainting.
So far I have started working on the Zvezda Winged Hussars (undercoat, white, red pennants, horses) and glued the Mars Polish infantry on plastic caps.
I'm going to strip the Zvezda French cuirassiers and Lancers and repaint them (as they were - for Jackewlinese units, but with better execution). Guess I'll bring them back to the dorm and work on them here - the only trouble is about transporting brushes. Any good tips how not to damage them (besides putting them behind my ear or holding them with my teeth)?
I may also rebase - and paint my Jackewlinese steampunk figures (from the Strelets WWI KuK set). The problem is they need to be fixed on the bases beforehand as the plastic thingie below their feet is cut off. This probably means I'll have to paint them together with the base.
Then it comes to reading - besides the effort to have myself prepared for the next term (figured I'm good at extracting knowledge from books to notes) I shall indulge in reading Jomini's and Clausewitz's books on war theory, finish Scott's Rob Roy, Joyce's Dubliners and read some dramas by Shakespeare.
I lag behind with saying 'hi' to four new followers, in alphabetical order:
Abwehrschlacht (took a while to get it right)
Envoy (fellow Hungarian, no blog on your public profile?)
With them the follower count is above 75 which is quite grand really. I still feel I don't comment enough on others' blogs though.
Back in March I made a poll to help myself out choosing which parts of history should I focus on. The results were 1/72 Imperial Romans and 15mm WW2 Ostfront. For the latter I have produced a series of vehicles (partly thanks to fellow blogger Loki) and even managed to play with them, adapting the existing homemade rules to the challenge. Nothing of the Romans though as I switched to Renaissance (Polish Commonwealth) and some 28mm Nappies. I plan to change this in the next half of the year.
