The floor is being installed on Tuesday/Wednesday. Expect another update!
|Walls up! You're looking at where the table will go.|
|Another view of the where the table will be.|
|The "sitting area" portion. We will have a TV here and bookcases. Usual family room setup.|
|Looking into the storage room from where the table will be. On the right I used to have some shelving mounted to the wall. At this point I'm still racking my brain trying to figure out what to do now there. Probably free-standing shelves.|
|All that work...Primed with 2 coats of stinky, toxic primer, but at least it's ready for the real paint now. 2 x ceiling tiles will go into this void here.|
If you've gotten this far then I applaud your tenacity! So I did manage to get together with Dave this past Friday and we were daydreaming about wargaming plans for this summer. I typically like to have a wargaming theme during the summer and for this summer I'm kicking off "The Summer of Battlegroup."
While I'm more of a megalomaniac, Dave is more subtle in his approach. So I voted for Battlegroup: Kursk and Dave voted for Battlegroup: Barbarossa. Since any progress that guy makes is good progress, I threw in the towel and went with Barbarossa.
Like me, Dave loves the Gross Deutschland (GD) Division, so we're going to do a build and paint and plan a campaign around the GD's fighting in the summer of 1942 on the Eastern Front during Fall Blau (Operation Braunschweig).
Hopefully this culminates in some great 15mm campaigns on the tabletop in the new gaming bunker! More to follow as we start to plan this out but I'm already eyeing up some StugIIIB's from Zvezda as well as some more Panzer IIIs, and I guess I'll need to order some Panzer Grey spray paint!
Anyways,that's all for now. Busy day today and unfortunately none of it revolves around getting any work in the basement done.
