Well done.

So, the first game is scheduled for sometime in 2025?   lol

Hehe, funny! I think I will use a skirmish rules set. So there may be some game in the near future.
Thanks for the compliment, btw.

Cheers

Hi,
as you can all see, I am not the first among photograpers but nevertheless want to show you some pictures of the progress I made in this project:









The last picture is taken before playtesting a 4-sides scenario of Rebels and Patriots for a convention in September.

Cheers

Thanks for the Kind comments.
It's been quite a while that I wanted to do things like this because of my memories from childhood:

Love all the figures but , for me , the Grenadiers are outstanding. The Osprey skirmish rulebooks are economical and give a good , fast , fun  game . Rebels and Patriots would let you set up and play with what you’ve got now.

Nice work on those figures :-* :-* :-*
How did the four sided game go?
We have been playing this period using Fist full of lead "Horse and Musket" for smaller size battles that worked well

Thanks guys!
I've had to streamline the winning conditions to make it a little easier to have the players play aggressive. That's more fun in convention gaming imho.
The games engine - which I am a huge fan of - works extraordinarily well on Cons, as it is really easy to learn so that players start to do their own gaming after turn two or so.

Four sides goes as good as two as the game is IgoUgo because there is no turnover any more.

Just one tip on the red. The trick is to use the real color you want to end up with as a highlight over a series of dark brick to black red base layers. Red is difficult cult otherwise cause if you add white you end up with pink, if you add yeallow you end up with orange on top.

Thanks Captn, that is just the way I did it.
The orange on the sashes is the intended color.
