An informal look at the people who visit, and the games that are played in my garage.
Friday, 15 January 2010
There were only three of us at the garage on thursday evening which pretty much precluded any gaming so we took the the time to set up the terrain boards for the final showdon in Erics' compelling saga. This is actually no mean feat as the boards are heavy and numerous. In addition we had to work in two extra boards which fit into the gap between the two tables.
The result as you can see above is to give us an extra eighteen square feet of table to play on. I believe the idea is to have a central French position with the Allies attacking from all sides. It should be interesting to say the least.
Moving on to some of the newer additions to the garage I took a few photos of the Russian cuirassier arm now that it's as complete as it's going to be for the foreseeable future. These were all painted by Neil Sheardown who is currently working on several regiments of French and Russian light cavalry. Neil has just bought a soldering iron and has decided to animate the individual squadrons which should look great.
From left to right these are, the Emperor, Gluchkov and the Empress.
The support element is made up of four regiments of dragoons,
and a soon to be six gun horse battery.
Not satisfied with painting lots of cavalry Neil has also produced a second battalion for the Pavlov's which I'm sure are most peoples favourite Russian infantry unit, as well as two more units of Prussian Landwehr
Men in silly hats.
Yet more Landwehr.
There's no game next week as some of the guys are off playing WW2 games with tiny counters at Falmouth, a complete waste of time if you ask me, but no one ever does.
