May roundup

It all seems to have been a bit quiet in Sheffield blogland this month - I blame the warm weather making people go outside! No good can come of it you know...

Anyway, since I've been shocking on the posting front myself, it's easy for you to go back and see that I changed this month's target to the weaselly "as much Flashbang terrain as possible".

Here's a tour through my results:

As we approach the bank building we spot two stone seats outside. These were Antenociti's Workshop sofas, but they just seemed the wrong shape for sofas to me, so they became street furniture.

Once inside the lobby, you see an information desk and counter, (from Ainsty Castings) and some corporate red seating (again from Antenociti's Workshop) in case you need to wait...

Moving up to the first floor there are offices, so there's some desks, filing cabinets, (all Ainsty) and more seating (Antenociti's).

There's also the water cooler I bought from the Ainsty stand at Triples! I love that model, it was only £1.50 but there's something genius about the use of clear resin for the bottle...

Going upstairs again we come to a store room.

Then, if we sneak up onto the roof, we can hide amongst the (Antenociti's) air con units.

So there you have it. Not a bad bit of work, and I think I've now got enough furniture done for a decent raid on the bank building, which is what I'm planning for a test game between JP and Craig in a week and a half. I have other bits I'd like to prepare for that too, including some stairs - how do you actually get between the floors otherwise?

Anyway, I always like to do a wildcard to go with my monthly targets and this month was no exception. I had a VBCW game planned against Kieron, so I quickly boshed together a few more freedom fighters (including a boys anti tank rifle which I converted to have a historically appropriate monopod rather than the bipod it came with, and which was in no way a response to Kieron having a tank).

I also made the partner to the High Altitude Marksman's Mount for Extended Range (H.A.M.M.E.R), the Siege Insertion Carrier with Knight's Lance Entry (S.I.C.K.L.E., geddit?). Despite being a barely armoured open topped vehicle, this was pretty useful in our game.

Targets for next month? Well, there's still more to do Flashbang terrain wise, so I'll aim to sort out the interior of the other Sarissa Precision building, get the Warbases warehouse I got at Triples ready for the table, and paint the rest of my Ainsty bits and pieces.
