In the Works


Here are my current painting projects gathered for review:

-up front is the first Grolstein Musketeer Regiment (yet to be named, but the Duchess has approved the uniform.) (RSMs)

-to their left is another command group for Grolstein (RSMs)

-unpainted behind them are the remaining Blue Moon civilians waiting for their character assignments...I'm going to find period images to try to breathe a little life into them before deciding how to paint them. (there's also a lone RSM dragoon firing that I'm using to scale a BIG Vauban fort section that I building slowly...to be posted soon)

-and finally the big 40mm ECW cav from Sash and Saber about halfway done...to be completed when the mood is right!

-and not shown:
I had this idea to do two small ACW brigades for a little collection (since I already have a bunch of older style unpainted Old Glory figures that I got on ebay a long while ago.) for some small ACW battles...I was thinking a good start would be the forces in Don Featherstones classic "Battles With Model Soldiers" that he used to demonstrate his rules: 2-20 man regiments and one 12 man cav and one gun per side. A little cav heavy for the period but classic stuff and I am the proud owner of a 1974 vintage hardbound copy!

...and finally I have two boxes of Perry 28mm plastic French just waiting to have it out someday with the new Victrix Pennensular Brit plastics (yet to be aquired...) so the Naps are a LONG term project that are waiting for perhaps the new rules from the "League of Augsburg" guys when they come out. Naps rules are a perpetual headache but the scenarios in the new Tabletop Teasers have got me wanting to do a bit of it. (Anybody in the market for two small armies of unpainted AB French and Brit Naps let me know...I think I've painted my last 15s since my eyes are just not there any more.)

The figures look good.

I'm now the proud owner of a set of those Blue Moon figures as well. You can see my lot on the Hesse-Engelburg blog. Nice to see the RSMs in progress also. Someday I shall be doing them en mass in like manner.

Have you checked on the Le Feu Sacre rules from TooFatLardies (www.toofatlardies.co.uk) to see if they might suit you for Napoleonics?

Those RSM's are very nice looking figures....!

More interesting to me was the piece on your proposed ACW project though as that was the exact same book that also sparked my project! I even managed to get a copy of the picture from the action in the Platville Valley from John Preece... the project is on the back burner at the moment but your words are making me wonder if perhaps I should re-investigate!! :o)
