Almost any progress on the 1914/Colonial/Little Wars front requires me to decide on exactly what I want to make and then sculpt it and make molds. So, I'm turning to the molds I do have on hand and that has led me to my new Prince August molds, over a year old and only 4 test figures cast and painted.
Oddly enough, from 2003 most of my Prince August castings were based and organized for my first set of Morchauser based rules. At that time only MacDuff's Fusiliers were organized to take part in the HAWK's NQSYW games. That has changed of course and all of my semi-flats are based and organized for Charge! though I don't have room to field them all at home and have more than I ever take to a convention game. Since I got the new PA molds, I've been uncertain what to do with them. My first instinct was to raise new NQSYW units in uniforms of a different, more modern style than the others more as a matter of principle than in hopes of using them. My 2nd thought was to use some of the Prussians as Hessians along side my chunky AWI British but I've already started selling all but a handful of my AWI figures..

The current plan is to get my wood/work shed beat back into shape tomorrow and do some casting and then some painting. But, in the meantime, I have a Charge! game on the table using 1/2 distances and companies as units.
