Preparing for battle

Seeing as I’ve been trying to reorganise the attic to create some space I thought I’d set up a small table and finally take the shrink off some of the Purbeck blocks I have. It’s only 4×4 but there is room when the underlying table is fully out to take it to 6×4 which for 15mm battles will do me. I also wanted to see what the troops I have to date actually look like en masse. Still having problems with the camera so no doubt if you zoom in then they’ll be out of focus!

So first an overall view as multiple lines of Rebels prepare to defend the hills:


And then views of the Rebel and British lines:



I want to do some mods to the Purbeck to add some texture and variety and maybe some fields. Or maybe just do them on card at sizes my fences will fit around! And I need roads. And I’ve got a few buildings to paint up as well.

There is just sooo little time….

American General

Although I’ve had various command figures done for a while I hadn’t got round to doing the ‘proper’ 40x40mm CinC bases suggested in British Grenadier. So, as I plan to actually get round to a game soon (honest!) I thought they’d best be done. The man himself is from Freikorps and the assorted aides from Essex. The drinker and waiting runner are from a batch of figures I bought a while back. The others my own. In true American style he’s firmly ensconced behind a fence!
