I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country ...

... He won it by making the other poor, dumb bastard die for his country.

The last three miniatures from the 'Operation: Red Veil' starter pack for Infinity are so close the being complete that I keep picking up the two TAGs (that's Tactical Armoured Gear, in 'Infinity Speak'. Or for the rest of us, mecha.) I picked up for my Yu Jing and Haqqislam forces. But last night for a change of pace I jumped in and finished off the miniature of General Patton that turned up with the Bolt Action 2nd edition rule book. So why not start the post off with a quote from the film 'Patton'.

But speaking of Bolt Action I can't help but notice that been almost two years now since I picked up Bolt Action and of course, KonFlikt'47. And once I complete the Beyond Red Veil expansion pack I'm hoping to finally return to the my painting queue and there's three 1/1000th scale cosmo navy crusiers in 'drydock' and another 'big battalion' of French napoleonic infantry for 'Plan N' in line not too far after that. Two years ago I promised myself a cake once the queue is finished and you know what? I want that cake.

I usually paint in preparation for a planned game... but cake works, too!
