Winter summary

Hello all. Here’s a quick roundup of my output in the first few months of 2018 as I build up to a demo game of the Battle of Camden at Partizan in May. 

First are the AWI French who have been reinforced by the Bourbonnais Regiment:

I have painted a new version of the British Legion Light Dragoons using the appropriate Perry figures:

My “old” Legion cavalry were converted Wargames Foundry Continental Light Dragoons, who are now being recycled into other units. Below are Armand’s Legion cavalry and a small unit of ad-hoc cavalry created by the 71st Foot to support their campaigning in Georgia in 1778-9:

I’ve also painted dismounted 71st “dragoons”:

And added to the Foot component of the British Legion:

On the terrain front I have made a couple of 8’x5’ mats using fleece and a lot of paint:

These can be seen in action in the photos below:

That’s about it for now. I’m currently working on some swamp terrain using towelling and am painting up militia cavalry and 71st Foot light infantry.

Best wishes for 2018

Hope everyone is having a good start to the year. 

Painting was curtailed when I injured my leg in November. I didn’t get back into the painting chair properly for the rest of the year but have made a start today by popping some washes on a few figures for the Bourbonnais Regiment. Finishing these will be my January project. Not too ambitious as I suspect work will keep me pretty busy over the upcoming weeks...

I’ll do some updates here but will check in more regularly on Facebook.
