I've been steadily chipping away at the mountain of models I accumulated this summer. I think I went on some sort of lead-based feeding frenzy. There's too much to paint for a long time to come. But I've been serious about my 28mm WWII miniatures. I've started with Crusader miniatures and have been filling in gaps with both West Wind and Bolt Action minis. Here's what I've got done.
So my American force now has a little more variety than just straight up rifles and LMGs. Next up for the 28mm WWII project will be my Japanese forces.
As a side note, I've been running a solo campaign with these models. I've been using Flying Lead rules with Nuts! for the solo rules. It has been a blast. I've been keeping a campaign diary, which really helps drive the story. It's also fun to write and re-read, even if it's just for myself. I don't put a lot of work into it, as it's just for me. But I've started to add pictures. Maybe one day I'll post the write ups when the campaign is over. Here's a shot of the US forces accepting the surrender of the remnants of a German panzergrenadier squad that tried to infiltrate US lines. It's one of the US squad's rare victories.
