|Armor finished, which is most of the model.|
In other news I hope to have a copy of the new Dust Warfare expansion in my hands later today. The new Axis models have been out for a while, but with no rules for them I haven't had any idea which, if any, of them I'll want. At the top of the list are planes. My local meta doesn't really do helicopters, but after one particularly gruesome game against one I'm a convert to the power of flight. The plan is to hit Huzzah if/when books come in, see if the planes are worthwhile, then (perhaps) get the pair that have been taunting me from the shelf for many weeks. Normally I'd make a large purchase like this through online channels as the discounts are too deep to ignore, but with the regional tournaments starting next weekend I'm not sure they'd arrive in time. My biggest fear about Icarus is that it will be a game changer, much like Hades was, and that I'll run into some early adopters posing questions that I have no answers for, hence my desire to beat them to the punch. Regardless of how things pan out it should be nice to have some new toys to play with.
