Progress report

No photos yet as I'm holding back on basing until I have enough stuff for a little production line (including some more Russians for Phil). So far I have finished the figures for Pack's brigade, the Brunswick cavalry brigade and the 1st & 3rd DB Carabiniers.

Next up is a brigade of hanoverian landwehr, for these I am using British infantry in stovepipe shako, but British in belgic shako for command figures (if the post office ever deliver them!).

No painting tommorrow though, I'm off to Cadburyworld

Painting re-starts

Hurrah. I actually managed to get an hours painting done last night. I returned to the 6mm napoleonic British and got a battalion half-painted. Might get them finished tonight before turning to the Black Watch.

At some point soon I'll do a step-by-step on the waterloo british for Pete Berry's Baccus site. This will slow the painting a bit, but should be worth doing in the end.

I'm also keen to paint up some Dutch Belgians soon too.

Should get in a game at the club last night to test those early C20th rules I'm working on.

Still here!!

Progress has been slow!

Work has be a bit intense since August and I have been battling an eye infection that would not go away.

My eye now feels a lot better and a couple of work things have been resolved. I also passed my Psychiatric Pharmacy Diploma so I can havea short breather from studying too.

Hopefully I'll get a bit of painting done this weekend and I can get back to all that re-basing I had planned too.

I have been working on my interwar rules in the last few weeks and am more convinced that I have the basis of a good infantry game, that now needs some vehicle rules adding on.

cheers all!
