Legion League: Week Three

I had the bye on week two, so my second game of the league matched me up against someone I had previously played at Kublacon, Nick.  We both had Imperials, and he had a pair of tanks vs. my single.

My single tank helped this position for most of the game, destroying one tank and several Stormtrooper squads, but was ultimately taken out by the second tank.
Lord Vader and his escort squad of Stormtroopers did some damage, but I was outnumbered.
Fun game, and close until the last turn.  We only had a combined total of about five figures left on the board by the end of turn six!

Napoleonic Flags

I put some flags onto my friend Hal's 6mm Napoleonic teams for him, since his eyesight isn't what it used to be.

Panavia Tornado Strike Aircraft

These are resin and metal models, the first I've painted from Battlefront.

Armed with JP233 Submunitions
Flight of two.  Decals went on way better on these.

MBB PAH-1 Anti-tank Helicopter

My first ever helicopter models, these are all plastic.  I had a difficult time with the gloss on the canopies, the acrylic cured funny and cracked.  I had to go back with an enamel and redo it.

Not only did the canopy give me a difficult time, but the deals also wouldn't settle.  Tricky for sure.
Full flight.
