I am. I’m always looking for something new. It’s not enough that the current painting and project queue consists of 15mm DBA Ancients, 1/6000 World War 1 ships, 1/3000 World War 1 and 2 ships, 1/1200 scale Aeronefs, 2mm Land Ironclads, 1/300 scale Napoleonic and Ancients (and lots of the Napoleonic’s I might add), a nominal 1/3000 scale space fleet and 6mm World War 2 and Future War Commander armies but I need to look for more.
What did I do?
I ordered a sample pack of the Oddzial Osmy 1/600th scale (that’d be 3mm) figures. Given the stellar performance of the Aussie dollar at the moment, the sample pack of these figures only cost me Aussie $10, including postage from the US. So, I order the Yom Kippur War sample pack from PicoArmor.com of Illinois, USA. The pack contents includes:
- 3 Centurion
- 3 M113
- 3 M109
- 3 T-55
- 3 BTR-50
- 3 Polish M-30 howitzer
- and 3 Infantry
It’ll be fun to paint these up and test out the basing of these vehicles and figures. If, as I expect, these vehicles and figures work out as well as I think they will, then the creative juices will be flowing and I’ll think about adding another project to the list – perhaps something around the Middle East – or perhaps a mini collection.
First – let’s get the figures and have a look at them. Then let’s worry about the project queue.
