Mail is Delivered !!!

The Postman delivered my French Brigade today, I am much happy as now I can start working on painting.

I am very pleased with the Perry deal, ordering direct from them saved me a few dollars and it took eleven days to get to me...I will do it again for sure.

My plan is to start on six figures and see how I do them and then go from there, so I have six Fusiliers for one company, without greatcoats. the next few after that I will try in greatcoats.

I am building 2nd Brigade/13th Infantry Division/IV Corp ---  48 Ligne (2 Battalions) and 69 Ligne (2 Battalions)

Wargaming - FOW

Played Flames of war today, had my American Infantry list against a Hungarian Infantry List, played No Retreat Mission, I was the defender, it was a slug fest going back and forth, but was a fun game.

On a side note we discussed a possible Napoleonic game, using Republic to Empire rules next week, so I am excited to start that. We also talked an hour on basing, I guess my Interest has sparked a few other members in our club to also start wanting to play.

OK, I have this Blog I started a long time ago, but never used it, well now I guess it is time that I became productive.

  • Some of the things I will show are me starting 28mm Napoleonic Wargaming and figure painting. I just ordered a French Brigade from Perry.

  • My Flames of War continuing American Army. Working on Platoons and terrain building for a table.

  • And my N scale railroad, currently have a 8 foot x 14 foot layout, always a work in process.

This is like a "therapy" project to keep me sane in an insane world, but I'll share my ups and downs on the hobbies.

I have say I have a wonderful wife whom supports or tolerates my hobbies
