It has occurred to me that I have reached a milestone of sorts, finally, on this project. With the veritable flood of new miniatures that have arrived (and another set that has been delivered happily - more on those later), the miniatures needs for skirmish gaming have been met. I definitely have enough monsters and troops for some good gaming, so the procurement portion of the project will need to tack to a new heading.
Which direction is that? Terrain, of course!
Simply put, I have no terrain pieces, save one, that could be used for a proper setting for gaming. Everything will need to be obtained, from trees to fields to streams to buildings. The one piece that I do have is a table covering, which I purchased very late in the previous century. Simply described, it is a four-foot square of green-flocked rubberized felt. I will need to drag it out from the closet and see if it will lay down flat on a table, and to check the color for base matching purposes.
Slow but steadily, the project plods on!
