It is sort of sad, 10 years ago this would have been fun not work. I can't wait to get back to some glossy toy soldiers.
I don't technically need these guys for Huzzah but they've been on my desk wearing a base coat on flesh and clothes for 2 years now and this could be the last chance for them to appear on a table in the foreseeable future. Part of it may be that I've done Woodland Indians in 4 scales and the first time was the most fun and I enjoyed going to town on the warpaint. Those were mostly Freikorps 15's, very nice figures. these are Old Glory 40's. The 1 part figures are quite nice but the multipart ones are pretty bad and the separate powder belts and bags are awful and would be better scratch built on.
Anyhow 6 more to go but not this weekend. Tomorrow the 1/72nd Nine Years War resumes.
Viewer's Choice Celebration MiniCampaign
It has now been over 20 years since I launched "With MacDuff On the Web" and nearly 10 years since I launched my 2 blogs: Gathering of Hosts and Battle game of the Month.
To celebrate the years and the friends and the million hits I've decided to run a 3 game mini-campaign in late October. By popular vot e it will be set in the mid 18th Century.
