Muddling On

I have made a little progress with some work-in-hand as I recover from a short period of illness.

I flocked the bases of some French Napoleonic infantry.

Now they just need a tricolour.

I made an additional 4 free standing figures for rulesets that require skirmishers to be deployed out of close order.

En Avant Mes Enfants.

A battalion of Hanoverians await some white paint.

I have painted and based the first 5 units of Union troops from my recent purchase from Baccus.

The rules supplied by Baccus are Polemus and they recommend an infantry unit is modelled on a 60x30mm base.

I would want to use these same figures with other rulesets such as Longstreet or On To Richmond so I made each Polemus base out of three 20mm square bases magnetically attached to the 60x30 sub-base.

A 10 stand Longstreet unit would look like this.

Here's how they look flocked.

From behind you can see where I will place the unit name and any other markers required by various rulesets.

Finally, and Thankfully my recent Muddling About, making extra shelves, reboxing some figures and generally tidying up has allowed one of my 6x4 tables to be cleared enough for gaming.

Woo Hoo!

Bearing Up

Bear with me guys.

I managed to slap some paint on some bases last night and flocked some other bases.

I hope to get my camera out this evening.


Doc says I'm due a gall bladder scan.

Floored Again

Another bout of stomach pains has upset my schedule yet again.

Another unplanned visit to the Royal Infirmary overnight has set me on the path to yet another endoscopy, more tablets and who knows what else.

On the plus side it is a chance to catch up with my reading. (That is a plus isn't it?)

Baccus 6mm ACW

I visited Vapnartak today.

I bought only one box of figures;

but it was a BIGGIE;

well, actually a SMALLIE ( really lots of smallies)

The Smallies look a bit like this.

They'll look a bit better once I throw some glue, paint and flock at them

They came from here:

What did you buy?
