My ECW campaign is continuing, with more battles (and battle reports) due soon. I am hoping to reach December 1643 in the next couple of weeks. At that point, there will be a planned hiatus for a few months as I paint up a Scottish Covenanter army, ready for its march into England. I think I will have a bit more time for gaming and painting over the next 9 months or so, so I am hoping to pick up some other gaming threads. Amongst these are returning to some WW2 small-scale actions, the Martinstaadt campaign, revisiting Polemos: Ruse de Guerre and another selection of old magazine scenarios. I am going to try and do a few more rules reviews too of some older sets, or ones otherwise out of the public eye.
Painting-wise, I am currently finishing off the bits'n'bobs at the bottom of my model box. This includes making up a War of 1812 United States Army from some spare Napoleonic-era figures (mainly British, but with a few others):
|Baccus 6mm Napoleonics to the right; random 28mm figures (LotR goblins; some free Partizan stuff) to the right|
|The first few units of US infantry completed (2 Bns in Blue, 4 Bns in Grey for Winfield Scott's Brigade) and some accompanying skirmishers; plus another base of British infantry and some skirmishers.|
