The latest additions completed . First up is the third steamer for the flotilla . It’s based on bits from a resin Grand Manner stern wheel one I picked up a while ago. I built new superstructure from foam board, plasticard and also some printed card bits I had designed using PowerPoint. It is to represent a vessel from later in the period and has some heavier weapons , a ,12lb , 3lb and 2 maxim guns - these were all sourced from HLBS - nice pieces. I have made it so the various flags and ensigns are swappable.
the sailors are a pack I had from Pulp Miniatures- very nice sculpts . I also think this one will see duty on some pulp games I am sure.
Next a 48 figure unit for the Egyptian Army . All Perry figures . Just 1 left to do of these now
I just need to do a last sort through the Sudan lead pile boxes to see what I have left to do - its much reduced at least!
Picking up those brushes again.
I will use the blog to record my creations & the odd occasion I actually do some gaming.
I have always been inspired by the aesthetic side of gaming. Playing on well constructed terrain using excellently painted units is always a joy.

Normandy 44 - game planning La Fiere
I am working on the next big game. This will cover more of the area around the flooded areas of the river Merderet at La Fiere and Cauquigny . So what better than to have a visit . I always enjoy exploring an historic battlefield.
I have a load more photos to refer to which I will add on another blog post when I have access to the PC.
