It was my second “real” post on this blog and was supposed to be the one of the major reasons for writing, chiefly being a collection of research notes and then a displaying of the final 3D models I had managed to craft from said research.
But life and the hobby seems to throw lots of “shiny” at us to serve as a distraction* and delay to our plans. Not to mention a slight pedantry that forces more than a few “do-overs” as I try to make it as perfect as possible.
No battle plan survives contact with the enemyHelmth von Moltke
I think the same can be said that any wargaming project does not survive contact with the painting table. Or at least I find it so…so maybe my planning needs a little more work?
So fingers crossed, the next plan is to tackle the Lutheran Church from Sharpsburg, made famous by the Andrew Gardner photo, and then maybe the Miller Farm, so I can bookend the Antietam cornfield.
* I have supported all the Blood and Plunder Kickstarters, which sit unpainted next to my painting bench seemingly in accusation of their neglected state and teasing that they would be such fun…must resist…28mm…pirates…so tempting.
