Some time back I had a post about my plans for some 1/1000 scale naval gaming. Well, I ordered a few of the Houston ships from Great Endeavors . . . two Russian and two Japanese battleships as a start.
My plan was to build up to the Battle of the Yellow Sea (Russo-Japanese War). That was my plan.
A few weeks ago I noticed an ad on Bartertown from a fellow looking to sell a collection of Houston ships . . . some painted, some primed and some still in their boxes. Well, he was asking a very reasonable price (well under current retail) . . . so I bought them.
There were no Japanese ships and only one Russian ship (duplicating one that I already had) . . . but there were a bunch of American and Spanish ships, some British, Chinese, French and Italian ships . . . a real mix . . . not something for any historical battle.
So what do I do now?
Paint them up and play with them is all that I can think of at the moment . . . just have fun.
PS, I've had a very sore knee for close to a month. Doc says that it cartilage and if I ice it and treat it nicely it will hopefully settle down. Well this morning I woke up with gout attacking the ankle on the same leg . . . so I'm on pain meds and gout medication . . . and I'm zonked . . . perhaps when I'm no longer on the pain meds I'll figure out what to do with my Pre-Dreads.
