I have been really distracted by my plans for WWII Normandy Campaign using the Chain of Command ruleset. So distracted in fact, that I have done very little work on my first submission for the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge. I have been looking at all of the submissions on Curt's blog with some embarrassment and although I have started an unit for the challenge, I just find it more interesting to work on terrain. I do have a battalion of Front Rank French Légere half painted but all those straps for some reason are not catching my imagination.
I am putting together a terrain for what I am hoping will be a three scenario mini-campaign for Chain of Command. WWII skirmish wargaming is new to me, and after a couple of games I have figured out that terrain is everything in this genre. From looking at games on various blogs, I have been really impressed with those terrains where WYSIWYG. I like working on terrain and I thought this would be a nice challenge.

|I have really enjoyed our Eastern Front games, but I think the ability to lay smoke is really fun, so I have my 2" mortar team already.|

Time to get back to the Légere I believe, before I completely embarrass myself!
