My OTHER hobbies!

I just thought I'd share some of my OTHER hobbies while I'm getting back into things here. The other hobbies that take all my hard earned money and time are historical reenacting and MILSIM airsoft.
I've been reenacting various time periods starting in 1989 in a REALLY bad German SS unit. From there I jumped to ACW, then later on to AWI. A few years ago I discovered airsoft. Which is like reenacting but you're shooting plastic BB's at each other with VERY realistic copies of modern and WWII weapons.
These are just a few pictures of my "other" hobbies!

A Slight Interlude!

    I know it has been quite awhile,well over a year to be exact, but I will be posting more very soon. I don't paint much over the summer months due to my room not being air conditioned.
    Also,there will be a slight interlude,as I picked up some of the new Perry and Victrix hard plastic 28mm Napoleonics. These are VERY nice figures! I got a box of the Perry 1815 French,and a box each of the Victrix Peninsular War British, and flank company boxes.
    I started the Perry French tonight,and may or may not post pics,as I want to keep this blog strictly AWI.
    On that subject, I picked up a HUGE collection of 40mm Sash and Saber AWI figures on Ebay about a month ago. Well over 200 figures for a song pretty much! I've been tempted with 40mm figures since I've seen them at conventions, and I'm a big fan of Sash and Sabers work with 28mm figures over the years. I can't wait to get a crack at painting them!
    Recently,I had sent out some of my horses,as I loathe to paint horses! I sent them to the great Howard Whitehouse,who lives close by,and who's work I admire, plus, I need to keeep himput of trouble!
    Anyway,stay tuned, your regularly scheduled AWI blog will get down to business in the coming weeks and months!
