New Stuff and Japanese on the painting bench

Now that the Perry 28mm Brits are complete, it's only natural that the next miniature acquisition will be their old foes, the DAK, and wouldn't you know it, the Perry's just came out with a plastic box set.  These guys will likely see the business end of a brush in a few months.

 As you may have inferred from previous posts, I've been bitten by a terrain making bug (which seems to be catching).  As this weekend promises to be rainy and cold, it's a great time to further build out the 'old terrain inventory.   So a quick run over to Ernie and his Architects of War shop (it's very dangerous having his operation only a few miles from my home) and I've got some more terrain projects!  Who knows?, I may actually finish enough terrain to host a game in the next month or so.

Lastly, what's currently on the painting table are some 28mm WW2 Japanese (from Brigade Games) to flesh out the force I'll be taking to the Bolt Action tournament at Fall-In.  Pictured are 12 riflemen, 6 suicide anti-tank troops and a medium mortar team.  Also pictured in the extreme upper left is a Ho-Ni assault gun with a 150mm howitzer.  HE guns are all the "rage" in the current Bolt Action "meta".  I need to get these guys painted up quick for a local tournament on 11/2 at Huzzah Hobbies.
