Welcome to my blog. I have upwards of 100 projects in various stages of incompletion or total abandonment, so you may well find something of interest. I try to post about everything I do, not just what goes according to plan, so it's a blog all about stumbling along in a roughly forward direction rather than reaching the destination, with lots of ideas for potential projects that will probably never see the light of day!

Back of Beyond Expedition Extras 
Well that didn't go quite as well as I hoped. The armoured guntruck scratchbuilding ended up in a bit of a creative cul de sac yesterday, with the end result just not looking quite right. I've decided instead to paint up just the gun and crew to stick into the back of one of my existing unarmoured trucks, using a drop-in flatbed so that I can use it as just a machine gun armed vehicle as well. I'm also looking to add a second Texaco tanker model to use as a baggage element, so all is not lost.
I've have done most of the basecoating on the Chinese labourer figures though, using a wide range of drab or dusty shades rather than lots of colour. These will get a further two layers and a highlight to finish them off over the weekend. I also have a unit of twelve Japanese infantry complete with a sword wielding officer and an attached machine gun to complete. I may swap them over with the White Russian mercenary troops that normally accompany my expedition team for the next game.
