GHQ WWI Battleships and Other Historicon Purchases
I finished the assembly and basic painting of my first GHQ 1/2400 scale WWI ship. The model in question is the British Battleship Royal Oak. As you can see in the picture the model is just three inches long but the casting has a wealth of detail from anchor chains and capstans to life boats. The GHQ micro-naught line is very impressive. The model was very easy to build and paint. This one went from out of the blister to painted in about 90 minutes. There are a few places that need a touch up but I'm happy with the results. I used a thinned down version of the GW baddab black wash to highlight the details. I'll finish this one up tomorrow night and get a few others started.
On the gaming front, I'll be organizing a 6mm ACW game using Black Powder for my club in the nest few weeks. Hopefully they'll be enough interest to run a campaign during the fall.
