Twilight Imperium GAME VI Timelapse.

A departure from my normal posts, I am actually participating in a game rather than just painting miniatures.
For those not familiar with it, Twilight Imperium is a game of galactic politics/conquest where a number of races compete to collect the most victory points by achieving objectives laid out on a track at the beginning of the game plus a player specific secret objective.
Despite having played Twilight Imperium previously I managed to come 5th out of 6 players due to my one major offensive in the game going badly wrong & having a secret objective that was well nigh un-achievable, but life's to short to dwell on these failures & there is always next time to pull off a stunning victory.
By the way, I'm the bearded gent in a black pullover facing the camera.

Peruvian infantry.

As 2014 begins to unfold I have resolved to complete a few ongoing projects before investing in more lead & plastic.
The first beneficiaries of this policy are these stands of Peruvian Infantry for the South American Wars of Independence project:

These are a mixture of Perry miniatures Napoleonic British bodies & Victrix French heads.

Next job in the pipeline is to re-base my ECW collection & at some point in the near future the postponed Korupedion game will take place else all the work re-basing the Hellenistic collection will have been in vain.
