"Not one step further into this thorny and bewildered track ! " (Too late...)

Like Uncle Toby I have not heeded Tristram's warning and have 'cast a pair of field pieces (or more) for the new redoubt !'

Muscavian Artillery

Arborian Artillery (Irregular 12pdr)

One squadron each of Arborian and Muscavian cavalry. Whew.

 Not so hard to paint large figures in toy soldier style even if gloss enamel is a bit tricky. Results are big and shiny !

They will be even more shiny after a couple of coats of gloss varnish . They should then easily outlast me.

On the Road Again

One year to the day and things are moving again. After being obsessed with ancient galleys the focus if back on muskets pikes and pistols.
I have finshed casting ..just about...with the final production of 18 battalions of 15 foot figures and 18 regiments of  6 horse. Along with 4 field guns and 10 regimental guns. Several pewter tankards and various 'tin' ornaments and old figures have sunk into the melting pot.

Painting begins...........

Having toyed around with rules the basic system has devolved on units mounted on a single tray or base  but casualties and fighting powers till related to individual figures.
 Ground scale is somewhere around 1mm to the pace and about 50 men represented by 1 figure.
