Back on it

Well, the Waterloo tester game was a massive wakeup call for me, reminding me I've got over 300 figures left to paint, so I got back into it over the last weekend.

Firstly I painted up my second Company of Coldstream Guards to join the first centre company which I painted some time ago. I am not willing to enter into the debate over the colour of their trousers - they are all done now!

Then I constructed and painted black an entire box of "Warlord Games British Starter Army" to make my 27th Inniskillen Regiment.

As you can see, I only managed 7 companies from the whole box, and so I need 2 more companies and a lot of command figures to make up the last 3 companies.
7 Companies of 18 figures each. Only another 3 Companies to add!
A monumental task if ever I've seen one! Warlord have sold a few more boxes.

Waterloo Tester Game

Not wishing to give too much away but I was privileged to take part in a tester game for the Waterloo anniversary game at the beginning of the month.
The rules were created by Chris Gregg and played well, although it was agreed a few minor changes were needed.
Although intended to merely test the rules, I had a fantastic time as well.
Next month we are testing the cavalry rules!
