It feels like ages since I've been able to get the time and sit down to update this blog, I have even been a bit slack on checking up on the blogs I follow. You may want to check out backtotheminis as Seb is having a give away to celebrate his blogs 2nd birthday.

I have still been busy on the wargaming front. I've managed to get in a couple of games at Neal's, both bolt action and General de brigade. Very impressed with the Bolt action rules that I went out and bought an early war British rifle platoon. I'll post updates later on the Vimerio re fight that I am currently involved in.

On to the painting. Things have slowed down a little, I put that down to finishing off the WSS British and needing to recharge the batteries. So in a slight change from the WSS I decided to make a start on my GNW Swedes. First up is Narske-Varmlands infantry battalion. I chose these as they were one of the few with red turn backs and I particularly like the flag.

For the Swedes I have done a 4th base with the pikes. This way I can remove the pike base and use them for the Seven Years war. The flag is from Solway and the figures are all Dixons.

I also finished off 2 more Brigadiers, this time French for the Friedlingen project. Both these figures are from Mini Figs and paint up rather well. i find I am warming more to Mini figs, especially the cavalry figures.

Now in preparation for a large FPW game at Micks I need to put in some work on a scenario and the related maps and objectives.
