British Grenadier Rules

Last night, September 19, 2014 we played an AWI game using the British Grenadier rules. We got off to a late start, having to go over the scenario and high lights of the rules, being our first time using them. The game also marked the debut of my American brigade,  4 sixteen figure regiments mounted 4 figures to a 40mm square base.
 Given the fact that we were short on time, we didn't fight the game to a conclusion, but will pick it up in two weeks time.  The rules seemed a bit strange, perhaps because we were new to them, but the game did play the way we envision a actual AWI battle would have unfolded.

  Here are some pictures from the game.

Hello Again

It's been a while since I've posted anything, real life has kept me busy. In August, Quebec City and l'ile d'Orleans were the destinations for our annual summer trip. Lots of history, culture and good food along the way. While we were away, we had the apartment painted and we are still in the process of unpacking things, almost as if we had moved to a new place. One unanticipated bonus was that I while going through boxes in my "studio" I came across a lot of "lost" and "forgotten" miniatures. This afternoon, I took some time off from unpacking to base some of the figures. Here are the pictures of my work, in no particular order.
Eureka 15 mm French Foreign Legion
Indochina 1950-54
28 mm Conquest Miniatures, I think, F&I Range

There will be plenty more to come now that I've found a stash of bases and static grass.

Stay tuned for updates.
