You do know you only need six figures don't you?

 ;)

The number of cards looked spot on, to me ...

Excellent progress, some beautiful figures and terrain on display, I particularly like the waggons, they are just so good.
I thought you had halted progress as I'd not seen anything moving for a while and then all of a sudden boom you explode with all this good stuff,  :o :o

I'd half expected you would have sold it all by now. :D

Played a small game of FFOL yesterday on 60 x 60 board - an uncomplicated 6 a side shootout.

Me versus my 7 year old nephew. I simplified the rules a bit, taking out Pinning (it just became No Effect on the Wounds Table) and limiting wounds to two. The changes balanced out as it didnít become an absolute bloodbath, though I did lose massively, mostly because my nephew had all rifles while I only had pistols. He did get the expected enjoyment of picking me off.  😁

Seven year olds that don't win tend to be very unhappy campers.  Best to let them win to maintain peace in the household.  Somewhere around 14 or 15 you can get your revenge - rarely sooner than that.  Good job.
