I do still update the movie section each year with our Video Race entries, and the arts section when/where appropriate... Which reminds me that I've got a couple things I could add there.
FSA Navy Fleet with Air Corp attachments: just the painted stuff...
FSA Navy Battleship: turrets and generators magnetized
FSA Navy Frigates: still trying to figure out squadron identifiers...
FSA Navy Cruisers: generators still in progress
FSA Air Corp Fighters: rudder color lets me run as 2 squadrons of 3 or 1 of 4 with 2 recon
FSA Air Corp Torpedo Bombers: what I typically run these guys as
FSA Air Corp Torpedo Lee Scoutships: two flights of two, one with red/white tails, one with yellow/white
I plan to go back and add free-hand embellishments to all of 'em in the form of FSA and/or squadron identifiers. I just have to figure out how I want to do it first. I've been inspired by several different techniques used on this forum and am having trouble picking which one(s) to use.
I've also begun work on terrain, the start of which you can see beneath the ships. I've got three 2' x 4' sheets of 1/4" MDF done up with the stippled-sponge technique made famous here. Have some test patches of glass-coat curing to see which application method I like the best. This time to tomorrow I expect to have that sorted out and hope to slather the boards in resin over the weekend.
I've also begun testing out a foam cutter and sketching up various islands and sandbars to break things up. My goal is to have a fully-playable Dystopian Wars game board in-house by end of summer. Then I can start back on either an Iron Warriors or Badab War force for Adepticon 2012's Combat Patrol.
To illustrate the point, I've chosen snapshots from each month that represent important life lessons Kyla and Lucas have learned in the past year.
Year 2.01: We're damn cute!
Year 2.02: The principles of flight.
Year 2.03: Don't let children watch Sons of Anarchy.
Year 2.04: Sedation is fun! If you're the one sedated?
Year 2.05: Always be ready to bail when a woman is behind the wheel.
Year 2.06: Tilted camera angles make cool album covers.
Year 2.07: We clean up goooood!
Year 2.08: CGI is hard to work with.
Year 2.09: It snows in Dallas.
Year 2.10: You can talk and drive. At the same time!
Year 2.11: Walks with dad end with treats.
Year 2.12: Being 1 is exhausting?
Year 3.01: ?let's try out 2!
It's exhilarating to see them interacting with their world in new ways every day to develop and grow into honest-to-God people. While I want to hold on to 'em like this forever, it blows my mind that this time next year we'll be having conversations. I can't wait.
