Since I have not done anything for a fair bit, and I'm currently boxing up the entire contents of my hobby room in preparation for moving rooms, and found parts of it, I've looked at the logic behind my logic for this project (i'm such a Vulcan sometimes ).
started with the logic that since I am already building 20mm scenery, I
might as well find additional uses for it. Hence, next to Afghanistan, I
want to try out Sci-Fi. It would be stupid to build identical sets of
terrain for various scales. But actually, it isn't. I can build the 20mm
Desert buildings at the rate of 1 each free evening. So far I have over
15 buildings that need to be painted but I've been playing with using
sponges to speed up painting and sofar the results have been good. Also,
I like building scenery (call me odd, but I do). Storage wise that is
only 2 A4 Paper boxes. I have no problem storing these. So for a well
filled village of about 20 buildings I would not need more then 2 A4
I already toyed with 15mm before, but gave up because no
one else played it locally. This is also a BS reason. I've noticed that
if I supply the good looking scenery and the space, people don't mind
driving a bit more for a game. Also, 15mm is much easier to purchase so
the treshhold is much, much lower for starters.
Only the rules are bothering me a bit.
Anyway, 20mm sci-fi is now cancelled, I'm going back to 15mm but don't expect anything too soon.
(another reason is that Brigade Models has spoiled me with their service and quality. And I love their Mercenaries. And I really want to get back in sci-fi to let loose my building skills)
