Some random thoughts concerning the state of the various projects I am working on....

The Falklands Project
Top Malo! This scenario from Force on Force is small enough to knock out quickly. I have a plenty of MJ Figures to cover the forces, just need the house and the few outlying structures to make it come together. I may try to scratch build the house as the Time Cast version doesn't allow for figures to be placed inside, which to me is a must. The paper version could be used, backed with foamcore, and perhaps a second floor added in. Or I can just go with a true scratch build, much like what is going on over at Dougie's Wargaming Blog.
I have also considered selling off the MJ Figures I have and going with FireForce15. Those sculpts look so nice! However, I would want to see more packs to fill some wholes before making that decision. British with berets, more vehicles, etc.
The X-COM Project
I've primed the Rebel/Khurasan Martians and Eureka Germans, built and primed a few of the RAFM Imps, and have built and primed the Martian support (Rebel walker and Khurasan saucer). I also have picked up some of the paints I needed to push ahead. Still working on a uniform color for the Germans, might be a panzer gray/feldgrau combo. The Martians are easy. The Khurasan will be the Sectoids, and hence will be gray. The Rebel Minis will be the Mutoids as they are taller, and will be painted in the Muton green with a bit of gray shading (the Mutoids are new race creation, an interbreeding of Sectoids and Mutons).
My Iraq and Fifth Frontier War projects are always ongoing, but as I have not worked on these for quite some time hence have nothing new to report.
