A three week reprieve of my absence yet not a battle report yet!  Must I seek "a short drop and a sudden stop" for the poor man?  Or am I missing a thread somewhere?   :o

Seems a fine looking collection so far - and more than enough of the "local lads" to overwhelm those interlopers in blue.  Perhaps Akula and yerself got to pushing these fellers about on a table and a report is being cogitated into existence?

Majority of 'em were painted by Lord Raglan, they look even better in real life!

Sadly not...more a case of selling off a chunk of my "future retirement project" due to an unexpected and hefty bill.

Steve didn't gloat (much) but I'm still sore from waving goodbye to them  :'(

Oh, the dreaded "honey-do" list.  I think wives start compiling them for retirement the night before the wedding!

For circling wagons, I decided needed seven to do it right - but, of course, in 15 mm.  Five might do in a pinch but six just looked like a hexagon and fewer just looked weird to my eye.  And, since I'm a bit nuts at times, I have two such trains, one pulled by horses and the other by oxen so, if needed, I could go with fourteen wagons.  Cost and storage in 28 mm must create some different dilemmas.

Not my scale, but I'd check into ACW ranges for those seated gunners.  And don't be afraid to request a seller to sell just the figures - some won't but some might.

Sorted thanks, saw Akula yesterday, he told me Warbases do both army and settlers wagon drivers figures. They look spot on, too.

Great looking figures, no matter who painted them up.  If only we could see them in an actual battle... 8)

And I've put in a request to Da Boss about not going overboard on that "to do" list sine I've become "gainfully unemployed". i must admit, so far, she has been pretty good about it... :)
