Well, based on recommendations and having seen the OOB I’ve finally ordered a copy of Cowpens Battlefield: A Walking Guide by Babit. The postage is costing more than 10 times the cost of the booklet! (£2.75 for a 20p book). There are a couple of other books out there on Cowpens that I don’t have but need to do some research on whether they will really add any useful info to what I already have.

Steve, in a comment to the last post asked about figure ratios for Cowpens given the small numbers. As mentioned earlier I think, I’m doing it at 1:10. I’m also planning on doing Guilford at the same but that will need a few more figures 🙂

Next up will be the 7th Fusiliers. I’d intended to do them in bearskins as I don’t have any suitable figures in slouch hats (haven’t ordered any Freikorps yet) and the Polly Oliver figures are rather nice. However, seaching the posts on TMP someone pointed to Troiani’s painting of Cowpens showing the 7th in tricorn given their recent refit and arrival so I may just do them like that as I have a batch of suitable Polly Oliver figures prepped and ready.

The re-basing for BG is going well. Just 12 stands of militia and some skirmishers and I’m done. I still short 2-3 American command stands. Just to make the militia units more flexible. I’m also undecided about basing some of them in 6’s to give more choice? May post on the BG forum for advice.

Oh, and I’ve the Militia/State cavalry to do as well! Only 8 figures but a mix so may take longer.

My intention is to post my final OOB along with photos of each unit.

Then I may actually get round to playing a game!
