Le Bucentaure!

I give you one of my son’s GHQ ships. His research and details are second to none. When he’s home from college he takes over my painting bench! I don’t really mind since I really appreciate his passion for Napoleonic naval warfare. This ship is A 1/1200 scale model of “Le Bucentaure”. Launched in 1803, Le Bucentaure was a French 80-gun ship-of-the-line. She suffered heavy losses in the Battle of Trafalgar (1805) before being captured by the British “HMS Conqueror”.

She was captained by Vice-Admiral Louis-René de La Touche-Tréville.
And the ship!!

WWII Table

Almost done. Three or four more hedgerows and some street rubble and I’m calling it done. Just in time for my son when he gets home so we can play our brand of FOW and Crossfire.

FUBAR in Chechnya

Son was home from college for a couple days and we got into some skirmish games. First up was a game of FUBAR. I had the Russians and he played the Chechens mostly represented by Afghan mujahideen in Chechnya around 1999-2000. All miniatures were painted by my son. Terrain was all his effort as well except for a couple Battlefront buildings.  Had a great time and in the end my Russians held the town but barely.  We also played some western skirmish and once he's done his AAR I'll post the link.  Now for the pics. Hope you enjoy.

The Long and Winding Road

Well straights for now. Completed some city streets and dirt roads in 15mm. Going to add some T sections and I think I will have enough. Pics below are somewhat progessive but I forgot a few steps.

And the dirt roads with puddles.

 And what I need after building roads!

More WWII terrain and planning factors for streets, parks etc..

Some more ruined buildings made from foam board and other craft items. I'm  also working out spacing for streets with sidewalks on the eventual village I'm working on. I think I've decided on the two Stug wide street.

Some WWII terrain work

Since I've finished my airborne (pics coming) company my attention has now turned to completing my terrain for WWII. More pics soon
