15mm Terrain Progress


I haven't posted in a couple of days as I've been busy working on terrain and studying Chinese! But I finally found the time to post this update.

The first update is that I've made much progress on the Sci-Fi Centurions. Sadly these pictures are a day or two old but I wanted to show how I did each phase. As you see I sculpted the armor of a few more guys. I also have the weapons on most of them now and as seen in the picture on the right I've started working on the heads. I thought about leaving the heads seperate and having to cast the heads but in the end I attached the heads to the bodies. Almost done with 8 Centurions... not the 12 I originally had planned but will still be enough poses to make a wide variety of squads.

The next update is about terrain. I've decided I wanted some more terrain that is "tangible" instead of 2D so I am reworking the houses to include clay walls and windows. I've also started work on woods, landmines and making railroads out of some sprues that I have. Hopefully I'll be able to finish them for this weekend's game! I'm excited to see how the landmines work out rule wise and the railroad will be for show.

The final update is more armatures! As you see I've made 16 armatures for more "War of Resistance" miniatures. That is what the Second Sino-Japanese war is called by the Chinese. 8 for each side and these guys will be sculpted out of green stuff. These will take around 7-11 days to complete fully as I'm going to take my time with them. First do the feet then let that cure; then the legs, then that cures, then the torso etc. I also need to finish up the rule book so I can get that printed so that is another thing I've been working hard on. I'll add the Japanese forces, the campaign rules, and some smaller details tonight then send it off to be printed!

I've also been painting some Skaven for Blood Bowl and making some EFL miniatures but that is on the back burner at the moment. Well, I'm off to finish the rulebook!

February 28th - My Fourth Week in a Kung Fu School

A Tired Me eating my Friday Chocolate Drinking Hot (Powdered) Milk Afternoon Thoughts Man, Fridays are always a great way to wind down as it is just the perfect ending to a hard week's training. We have the Morning Tai Chi class (that I don't go to), breakfast, power stretching and then forms. After a usually delicious lunch we move on to cleaning the whole school making it, and ourselves, ready for a new week. But before I get to today, let me talk about yesterday. Thursday was interesting as I realized my knee was getting better but I wasn't pushing it too hard. I wanted it to heal fully. I could jog for a little bit but I just walked the morning 2km. Then came Qi Gong (气功) class taught by Master Yan. We learned/reviewed Yi Jin Jing (易筋经) which I realized I had forgotten almost everything but luckily "The Ten Tiger" Shilat and Master Yan were willing to explain some of the moves to me. So thanks! We helped build 3 out of the 4 stone tables there

January 22nd - Travelling in Shanghai

My Thoughts 🤔 我的想法 I've finally arrived in Shanghai. After a long journey from Minnesota to Dallas and finally to Shanghai, I made it. No flight delays, no bad weather, just a simple day of flying. The hotel that I stayed at was pretty good. I tested my Chinese by trying to check-in and out using only Chinese with a little success but I didn't do that well. I did test myself one other time and that was to order breakfast today! This I did really well and I even understood the hotel staff on the phone, which was surprising. I have felt weird coming back to China. A few things happened that made me think, "Yup, I'm really back in China". People staring at me, check! The crowded metro stations and sidewalks, check! People talking about me in Chinese because they think I don't understand, check! People arguing on the metro over dumb things, check! Just so many things that make me realize, no, re-realize how different life is here and in America. I'

May 19th - News

Me, Flying Lots of News Quite a lot is changing at Maling Kung Fu School in the next few weeks. Master Ning, our Tai Chi/Baji Quan teacher, is leaving the school to go home and "study more" but, from his own mouth, he said there isn't enough students at the school and he doesn't know if he'll come back. Then, next week Master Yan is going to be helping the kid summer school owned by headmaster Bao. He said once the classes start up he will be gone for 2-3 months. This means we lose a valuable Sanda coach and Xing Yi Quan master... which leaves us with Master Peng and Headmaster Bao. That's not all! Next week will be the last week for two classmates, Shilat and Terina, so our number is shrinking to seven students in total. From what I've heard, Master Bao will be taking over Sanda and Tai Chi classes while Master Peng will teach us Basics and Forms. Power Stretching and Power Tr
