Saturday Activity

I've been hard at work on my recent pick-ups, some 6mm Polish Marines. The first batch of vehicles is done, though not based.

That's 15 OT62s (disguised as BTR0s) and 7 T-55s. I did a bit of a blue and white splash on the sides, primarily as a bit of color. See this PT-76 for a full explanation:

The troop carriers have magnets underneath so they can be easily removed from the metal bases I use if I want to use them as pure infantry.

And to wrap up the evening, Wifey and I played a series of MLB Showdown. We drafted new teams and although I was very happy with what I'd put together, I still managed to lose two of the three games. The finals were 4-3 Loss (Vinny Castilla homer in the bottom of the 9th), 4-3 Loss again (Vinny Castilla homered again in the bottom of the 9th, this time to tie it! She won in the 10th inning), and finally 8-7 Win (I jumped out to an early 4-0 lead, she scored 7 in the 3rd inning, then I clawed my way back to take the lead in the 8th and hung on for the win). See scorecard below.


  1. Impressive and great looking vehicles!

  2. That MLB Showdown paragraph is like reading something in a foreign language :)

    1. Still easier to understand than Cricket!
