Just laying everything out consumed a pleasurable afternoon and I could feel the old magic seeping back into my gaming starved brain.
After all, these guys are what really ramped up my gaming not to mention my blogging two years ago now, and they deserve to get some table time.

Still deciding on what rules (my usual Grant or perhaps another go with Black Powder...or maybe some others...) to use for this battle...but it's shaping up to be a big one regardless.....More pics of this upcoming battle in the next post.
(....having a bit of trouble with blogger getting pics to be clickable....so some work and some don't...)
