Partizan reminder

Just a memory nudge that next Sunday (6th Sept) is "The Other Partizan" at Kelham Hall, near Newark:

Not the largest wargames show, but possibly the most perfectly formed!

I'll be there helping James run his Italo-Abyssinian game and generally wandering about helping at the show, please stop by and say hello. As I'm not running a game of my own I should have more time for chatting.

Napoleonic rules available from Google Docs

Hi all

I have experimented with making my napoleonic grand-tactical rules available via Google Docs. I'm not sure how well this will work, but let's give it a go. The link is:

If you have questions about the rules then I would encourage you to join the Paintingshed yahoogroup.

Still around

Sorry for the lack of updates. I have had an exam to sit, holidays and whatnot.

Byng's gurads brigade is well on the way and hopefully I'll have it finished by the weekend. I then have another british brigade to finish and I might then to some Dutch-Belgians to round out Picton's Division.

8th Brigade (Kempt)

I finished Kempt's brigade the other day. I have represented this with units of the 79th (Cameron Highlanders) and 28th Foot, along with a skirmish line of the 1/95th Rifles. The actual bigade also included a further batallion, but I'd rather not compromise the look of the base by trying to represent every unit in the brigade. The fence is a Timecast piece, trimmed down.

Next up are the second Guards brigade (Byng's), but at the moment I am rebasing sime Baccus Russians for a fellow gamer at the club who is interested in gaming grand tactical napoleonics too.

Now Maitland, now's your time!

Well, that was a fun holiday by the seaside, but now I'm back and have finsihed the basing on Maitland's Guards brigade. I have even added cords to the flagpoles using some fine copper wire: Here is a shor from the side, showing the troops ranked up:

...and a view from behind, to complete the base.

Finally, here is anpther photo of the 5th brigade, now I have added cords and tidied up the base edge (using GW Dark Flesh).

Cameron highlanders next...
