Moving swiftly on, our postie (who is one of the grumpiest people ever born) came up trumps with two lovely packages. Firstly my pre-order of Lion Rampant by Dan Mersey, via Amazon:
I'll let you know what I think of it once I've had a good read.
Then my (discounted) goodies from Peter Pig - more Continentals and some more British dragoons:
Paint Table Saturday this week showed Tarleton's boys, some guns and command figures, plus the ongoing little churchyard:
The churchyard needs a little more paint, some flock and shrubbery before it's finished, but I am relatively happy with how it turned out, simple but effective:
This week I also managed to complete the Hessian Jagers and Fusiliers:
I actually really enjoyed painting the Fusiliers. They are meant to be Von Dittfurth's battalion, and I love their 'toy soldier' look. I am not a great fan of 'old school' wargaming - complete with lime green table - nor the fad for imagi-nations, but I can perhaps see the attraction of the uniforms.
Until next time..................
