Really....can things get any cooler? I think not!

They did it again - another very impressive run of releases from the guys at Back 2 Base ix.  I really cannot get enough of this stuff that keeps coming out.  The price is great and really affordable.  I can see all of these units on my work table.  I cannot wait to see whats next - and I am loving that colour too!  Although I think they offer like 12+ colour scheme - really cool feature.

Check them out: http://www.back2base-ix.com/

Spotlight of the week!

If your a wargammer or a modeller, or both like I am you owe yourself a visit to Back 2 Base ix.  This is a site a stumbled across last year and since then have found myself drawn to the site, each visit I just hope to see something new.  The guys there have really been busy bees as of late and have turned out a few products resently that I have found myself wanting.  Actually, scratch that...needing.  The paint rack and the tool rack are just a few of the products they offer.  But hey..don't read about it see for yourself at their site.  I know for a fact you will be thankful you did.

Its all about the scenery.....

Here is the very fun video series I filmed just prior to sending off the board to my good buddy.  I really hope you enjoy watching the vids.  There are many parts so I figured maybe posting 3 parts each day will be fitting and keep you on the edge of your virtual seats....of course you can watch more if you choose.

Cheers,

Today's TO DO list.....check!

Knocked out a metric shit ton of odd n'ends plus fixes today.

Deadline has me frantic.

1. Beach - adjusted the gap add sand to edges to fill the gap to managable level.  Non-visable at model level. 
2. Completed sand in all areas including running up the edge of the newly build hill and far end of the table.  Opposite the cliff face, this is the transition area between woods and sand.  Using pine trees here to extend the section previously done on the river edge.
3. Blacked out the house bases and vineyard bases.
4. smoothed the vines edges to allow slightly better fit.  Exposed some brown around edges to clearly define linear edge.
5. Soaked about 8 more feet of bocage to harden, about 2.5 feet left - time about 2.5 hours.
6. Filled in the gap in between bocage section
7. Test fitted board - looks great
8. Painted some tree washers - had an idea that perhaps having the trees besides the pines on washers would be good as you could move wooded sections and linear lines of trees around for more diversity.
9. Laid ground work around barn - last building yet to be worked
10. Did ground paste for entire hill
11. Inked ground work and laid rock to accept broken ground flock for pines.
12. put in final small rocky outcrop to boarder river.

Thats about it for today.
