Thanks MEasy!

My painting is slower and no where up to your standard I'll get the finished figures up soon(ish)...

Then I've got a box of late war Warlord FJs to do...working out how to pain some up early war...think just leaving off the gas mask tins will be okay I think...

Thanks Dropbear! Both mortars built now so time to start painting...the second figure when not needed as a mortar guy is easy to integrate back in with the regular troops as he is based the same way so only the 'not so useful' prone figure is locked together with the mortar itself... http://i43.phot...

Re: Sampan boats constructed for Hammerhead show

You're a machine a Nevermore, do you ever break from making terrain and accessories...what does your partner say!!!

Anyway very nice work as usual, the wire effect for nets is especially good.

However where are the bow cannon? :D

Re: 1812 Austrian vs Russian Skirmish - Song of Drums & Shakos Rules

Hey Dropbear!

Keep us posted on what you do for Napoleonic skirmish rules.

Yeah it's funny how one person can like a set of rules yet someone else finds its not for them...

Re: 1812 Austrian vs Russian Skirmish - Song of Drums & Shakos Rules

Thanks Nevermore!

In 28mm size I have about 30 - 40 figures individually based each from France, Britain, Austraia and Russia just for skirmishing. I must get some Prussians together one day!

I'll be interested to see how you go with the Chosen Man rules.

Hey Nevermore wonderful figures and terrain as always!

The massed cavalry of both sides look magnificent.
