I finished a couple more 'village' bases last night. Each base has space for a 60 x 60mm battalion/regiment base plus an artillery base. By joining a couple together I can represent larger BUA's such as small towns which will occupy more troops. I'm pleased with the overall look of them so far.
My scenic materials have arrived from 'Totalwargamer' so I can also crack on with edging more road sections and making more fields etc. Very good service from this company as always, been using them for a couple of years now as almost everything is slightly discounted including the Citadel paints range which I am gradually changing over to from Foundry. Stream sections are next in line after that.
I have another Highland battalion about half way finished, this time with yellow facings representing the 92nd.
I have been doing a lot of thinking about rules as I get close to my first test game. I keep on coming back to Paul Lennistons set as I really like the mechanics of the rules, which are heavily influenced by Le Fea Sacre. I'm wondering if I could adapt them for 6mm bases and battalion/brigade level and have been jotting down notes to this end. Having been following Paul and his wargames blogs for a long time now I have a good understanding of how well they work, and the emphasis is very much on the 'game'. I may well try a test run though soon. Paul's 'Napoleonic wargaming' site is in the blog links on the right from where you can find links to his many campaign games and his rules.
The three terrors!
Did I say that the two planned kittens turned into three? We decided to give the last of the litter a home too, I call them the three little terrors, but they are very beautiful, very funny and very good, not having had a single 'accident' since arriving home on Saturday. All three managed to climb up onto my painting table yesterday together, so I have to put the paints etc on top of the bookshelves when not in use now!
