My Wargaming Week, 24th April 2016
Hello one and all.
The painting had not zipped along this week but I have just finished off the grenadier battalion that I blogged about last week. These have been poshed-up by painting black gaiters over the sculpted overalls.
Yesterday I spruced-up and rebased the infantry component of Pulaski's Legion. These were originally converted and painted 15 years ago. I think they still hold up pretty well even if the greenstuff helmets are a wee bit rough and ready.
The six figures can deploy as skirmishers...

Lastly I have begun rebasing the light dragoons of Pulaski's Legion. I haven't really done much repainting to these, just highlighted the red areas and redone the saddlebags. As you can see my techniques might have changed but overall the figures from 15 years ago look pretty similar to the ones painted this week.
I have wanted a model to act as the Chew House at Germantown for a while. There is currently nothing commercially available for my 28mm chaps to fight over, and if there was it would be a very big model. What I need is something of a more manageable size, that I can place troops in and is recognisably in the style of the original.
The Chew House looks like this:
I came across this Police House on the warbases site for a reasonable price:
