It's Been a While..

February was a pretty hopeless month in hobby terms, too much of everything else got in the way and I don't seem to have got much done. That said, I've not been entirely idle. 

Basing up a decent-sized batch of 6mm Franco-Prussian War figures to paint for a big game took quite a bit of time, and wasn't very photogenic. However, I've started to get through the painting now, although the deadline is looming faster than I can wield the brush and a friend has kindly come to the rescue with some stand-ins in case I need them. 

I have finished some French batteries and a general, pics below, plus some Bavarian jager and infantry. More artillery tonight, and then on to some further command groups.

I did take a quick picture of some units on a terrain board, to give the visiting players a heads-up on what to expect and to explain some of the keys concepts of the rules I use (Realtime Wargames' To the Last Gaiter Button).. 

After this weekend, with back-to-back 4-player games there will be plenty to post about, so I'll be sure to take lots of photos.


  1. Very nice! Very impressed with the details achieved. I will have to look into this scale someday.

  2. All very nice but you cant used those for Ayton!

  3. A great job, no doubt...beautiful units!
