'MYST' in 28mm - CHOICE of COLORS.

Hi....I have decided that for my MYST Theme I shall employ a beige ground cloth, black to grey dry brushed buildings, blue felt rivers and aquarium plants with linchen.

I thought about the overall look of the MYST Game and tried to imagine what it may look like - this afternoon I re-painted the bases of the three Foot Guard figures with Jo Sonja's 'Unbleached Titanium' and set up my beige canvas table cover and set out some aquarium plastic plants with linchen - to asses the look- most pleased and I think it is a better choice than going for a green ground cloth. 
Having chosen the look of my future MYST games - I now eagerly await my two figure orders from Wargames Foundry in the UK- I'm allowing six weeks for delivery and do not expect that either order will be here before the New Year - such is life.

Fully pleased with progress.

That is my news for today.

Stay well Friends across the Globe.

Cheers. KEV.

'MYST' in 28mm - ROYAL NAVY Sailors.

Hi....I'm certainly looking forward to the arrival of the Wargames Foundry British Navy Sailors. I'm expecting that my MYST Project may not get off the ground until the New Year as I'm allowing up to six weeks for delivery of the items I've ordered from the UK- anything less will be a bonus.

From WGF I've ordered a batch of Royal Navy Sailors & Officers and a 6lb Cannon and Navy Crew, Gentlemen and Ladies Civilians, Baggage Mules and Donkey and Indian and Afgan Tribesmen. 

I'm not sure where my Project is headed- at the moment whilst awaiting for the figure order to arrive I can spend some time drawing up designs for water craft and buildings and collect the paints that I will eventually need for the project. So far enjoying the challenge of 'MYST' as it is something I've thought about doing for a very long time- now, with the chance to get something done- I'm very pleased.

Well- that is my news for Sunday.
Stay well Friends.
Cheers. KEV.

'MYST' in 28mm- STEAM LAUNCH.

 Hello...Last year I made these Naval Steam Launches and foolishly sold them. Now, I need to wait on obtaining the Royal Navy figures - paint them up- before building new water craft.



I've been thinking that instead of building conventional Steam Launches I may also try to build some 'Landing Craft' -similar to what was employed for the D-Day landings....as yet undecided- I still need to wait until I have the RN figures -then I'll decide what to do. What do you think?

Well- that is my news for today. Stay well Friends. Cheers. KEV.

'MYST' in 28mm- GRENADIERS.

Hi...Today I painted up some Guards - and Officer, Drummer and Ensign. I chose grey for the uniform as it seems most logical for my 'MYST' theme.

I'm going to have to wait until next year to be able to order the rest of the Foot Guards from Wargames Foundry in the UK as my bean pile is somewhat low. In the mean time I can do some design work on Steam Launches and Buildings - I will probably make a start on modelling some Launches tomorrow- these will be for the British Navy Sailors and the Guards.
Well- that is my news for Sunday Night.
All the very best Friends.
Cheers. KEV.

'MYST' in 28mm- A NEW PROJECT.

 Hi...I'm just starting a new project which I call 'MYST' using Wargames Foundry figures in 28mm. Tonight I've ordered types of the Royal Navy and  batch of Indians- Afgans. I've owned all these figures before and foolishly sold them.

Above is shown the last batch of Royal Navy figures which were sold last year- I intend to replace them now- with exactly the same Navy figures- only difference will be that the bases will be painted Green.

I'm not exactly sure of where I'm going with this Project -and not sure how it will end....all I can think of at the moment is to obtain the figures from the UK and enjoy painting them up. In the mean time I can attempt to build some steam launches for the British Navy and try my hand at designing some suitable buildings to suit my theme of MYST and think about the type of Terrain to be employed.
Well- that is my news for tonight.
Until next installment- stay well and safe friends.
Cheers. KEV.

STARGRUNT in 25mm - Global Slow Postage.

 Hi...I've placed an order with Jon Tuffley of GROUND ZERO GAMES in the UK. I'm waiting on seven Power Armor Figures and it has been 20 Days so far since ordering- and I believe the slowness of Airmail is because of the Global Pandemic. Jon has indicated that the package was posted some 17 Days ago.

The UNSC Marines.
The ordered Power Armor figures are destined to join my ARCON EMPIRE Troops and I'm looking forward to another game with my STARBURST Sci-Fi Rules.

Well- that is my news for tonight.
Stay well and safe across the Globe.
Cheers. KEV.
