This is looking great.

You may have already tried using a binocular magnifier (optivisor) and it may not fix your vision problem. If not, I strongly recommend you give it a go. My vision had also worsened to a point where I couldn't sculpt or paint satisfactorily anymore and I gave up on the hobby completely for over a year... until I tried a cheap 4x optivisor. The difference it makes in my case is absolutely dramatic.

Thanks for the suggestion. I have some prescription glasses for close work. A recent drastic change in my vision over Christmas meant they weren't working any more but, after several eye tests and a lot of money, all my glasses have been upgraded and I can see again (for the moment). I'm still not going to paint any more Napoleonics though, life's too short :)

I've finalised the design for the card fronts (no idea what to put on the backs yet). Here are some examples (smaller than actual printed size).

More from the brush of McYellowbelly, some French Marines and a gun crew servicing the fearsome 64pdr Gun of Navarra One. Navarra One is a battery commanding the bay, the other battery, Navarra Two, faces landward and its guns are not so fearsome. I can't help thinking that the Gun of Navarra One might be the target of a British raiding party at some point...





loads more to come!

Will the British raiding party be led by a certain Major Mallory?

I'm using the original Geurnsey Foundry horse and musket rules as a base but simplifying them a little bit for today's market. The basic rules are available as a free download from Foundry's site (or were) I can email you a set if you like. They are expressly for sharing.

:-* Excellent! The game's looking sharp  ;)

I see what you did there  ;)
