Been away on holiday for a few weeks, but now back in town, and getting back into the swing of things. While before I left, I was working on some 18mm Russians, I had some news while away that's had me shift gears a little.
|These have been languishing for a while. Two limbers, and the last of four guns.|
An old buddy from Newfoundland, Stewart, got in touch with me to see if I'd be interested in a bunch of 6mm figs he was unloading. Back in the day, Stew ran a small business selling them, and was, in fact, the guy who first got me into the scale.
|Together, two guns and a limber base Voltron into an artillery unit for Might and Reason.|
He's looking to get rid of the bulk of his old stock, and offered me a whack of SYW stuff, along with some Napoleonics, at bargain prices. I jumped on the offer, and as I speak a box of Brits, French, Austrians and Russians are wending their way towards me though the bowels of Canada Post.
As a way of getting back in the 6mm groove, I dug out, and finished up, the last gun and limbers for my already existing SYW French. These guys can, with a couple of gun bases, comprise a gun unit for Might and Reason, or serve as eye candy in Maurice. Nothing major, but enough to get accustomed to working in the scale again, and I've got a unit's worth of French infantry drying on their painting sticks as I write this.
Meanwhile, I've been pouring over the interwebs, especially Kronoskaf, and plotting out some kind of Brit / Hanoverian army to oppose the Frenchies. I should have enough figs to eventually put together a M&R sized army for French, Brits, and Austrians (aka, the French Germans), and a core force for Russians, in both the SYW and Napoleonics (Blucher, here I come!). Looking forward to it as well ;)
