Rebasing my ACW for F&F; adding to my Aerials for WW1 HitT & making BUA modules for SYW - it's been a busy week. Here's some shots of the BUAs

& here's what I'm working on now.... WW1 3D trench system - bit of a gadfly, I'm afraid.

Here's what I've been working on forever, it seems....
At least, that's the Foote - also got some Artillery, Horse & Dragoons but RoF does need quite a lot of bases to get the full flavour of the game & it looks like I'm doing both sides as usual.  Mixing the purple was a bugger... I'd be fielding almost twice as many bases if I went with PP's system but I guess I'm just stupid.

Told you it'd be slow ;(

I've been experimenting with a new trench system based on modules with trenches cut into the landscape. As soon as I have something concrete to photograph, they'll be added.

Also going great guns on the ECW Regiment of Foote  stuff. Again, pics to follow.

Further, I've decided to do a finite campaign in 15mm for fantasy - only humans (ie no dwarves, elves or orcs) but with magical stuff added, so Magicians & nasty stuff that can be summoned.
This has been prompted by an article on Mapless Campaign Cards & the decision that I can no longer subscribe to never-ending projects.

I want rules that give me a good game in 2 hours & armies that will not break the bank. I'll get back to you with the details.

That being said, I chose Colonials as a period because I wanted to field the good old British Redcoat. Unfortunately, I got interested in the Mahdist Wars - nary a redcoat in sight!
However, my erstwhile wargames opponent Zach has begun to build up both sides for the Zulu War so I guess we'll be redcoating it enough soon.

Only games I've been getting recently are Hordes of the Empire Mahdists & I'm happy to say that Dave the Drum, who had been getting way too smug with an unbeaten record since we began, got stuffed 3 times in a row by yours truly. Just got to coax Zulu Zach out to have a go.

I'm taking this slow as I don't really know what I'm doing ;) but hope to have some step-by-step how to items up soon. I'll start with the desert stuff - it's what I'm mostly into atm but I've also decided to consolidate all my terrain into items I can use for every rule set I employ. More on that soon.

Trench building

Hey, this is all tooooo new for me.... Having spent forever on several terrain & army building projects lately & having come up with what I think are some good ideas. I thought I'd share them with everybody to help out any others out there struggling to get stuff done. It may be a little while before I can figure out this new-fangled blog thing so bear with me. Come back later & I may have something to interest you or at least divert you for a few idle moments.
