Scots for Impetus Baroque and A Happy New Year!

These are from my on going Impetus Baroque ECW upgrade project I've been working on and talked about a couple posts ago here. This time they are Scots to compliment the English I already finished.

After the AHPC is finished I hope to get back onto this project again as I would really like to get a game in, but still short a few units. So other then a few small things for this I doubt I'll be back onto upgrading units until after March.

I would say 2017 was a moderately successful year with activity in the beginning and end but not much in between so I'm hoping 2018 will be more consistent in terms of painting and yes more gaming would also be nice.:-)

Goals for 2018:

-Complete enough F&IW figures for M&T and Sharp Practice
-Play some more Chain of Command both WWII and SCW
-Add to my SCW collection
-Finish the ECW upgrade project for Impetus Baroque
-Work on my Goths
-Start my Romano- British
-Get back onto my ACW project
-Add some more units to my AWI for some BP Rebellion scenario's
-Add more units to my Spanish Reconquista project for Impetus
- More terrain for North America and Spain

As always that list can easily change, but as of now that's what I'd like to see happen.

I wish everyone a very Happy New Year and may 2018 be a great year in the hobby!

Spanish house and Merry Christmas!

I've started on my collection of Spanish buildings for my SCW project and needed to work out the color scheme template for the rest of the buildings.

I'm quite pleased with how it's turned out and look forward to getting started on the others. The paints I used were mostly craft paints with some Foundry and Vallejo as well plus my trusty MIG pigments.

This building is from GrandManner which is my favorite terrain building manufacturer as I just really like the style he does them in. Also they come with removable roofs which is very nice so you can place your figures in and build alternate roofing if you wish to get a different look. They come with a price tag, but I'm willing to pay for it. I'll also add buildings from other manufactures and maybe even do some of my own, but will for sure have a healthy amount of GrandManner.

Of  course I can use these buildings for other periods like Naps if I ever I do them which making terrain that works for this does add some motivation and even regions like Italy for say Italian Wars or WWII and even southern US/Mexico with some roof adaptations here and there.

The AHPC here is coming up soon and this year terrain will be allowed which I'm quite pleased about as I plan on entering some more Spanish buildings in it. I've always wanted terrain in the challenge, but were not allowed until now which is great!

If I don't get another post in before Christmas I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas to you and all your love ones and may your stockings be filled with lead!
