Priseis Rose

I haven't posted in a little while, I've been a little busy with a brand new baby girl! She got a Greek name so maybe she'll get into Ancients!

148th Anniversary of the battle of Sharpsburg

...or Antietam as those dirty Yankees call it!
We had a game planned to refight the afternoon part of the battle where Burnside attacked Longstreet across the Antietam creek. We had some family things come up and had to cancel, sad times. Hopefully we can get a game in soon. And I've almost got enough 25/28mm ACW figs painted to put on a small game with some home grown rules.

25 Pounder Platoon WIP

I had a productive day on these, I got the two remaining guns and limbers assembled, all of the crew painted, and the second of four trucks painted. I've got a decent amount that I need to base but I can't remember what paints I used for the rest of the army. I guess that's something I should have written down!

Dismounted Union Cav.... slowly progressing...

Slowly but surely these are getting finished, I put 3 solids coats of paint on these to prevent warping since they're so heavy, and then when I was almost done glueing these down I realized I was out of super glue, so the basing will have to wait a little bit longer!

8th Army Update

Well now that I'm done with my Orphan Brigade diorama, it's to the grind for Flames of War, I'm trying to finish my MW British 8th Army Infantry Company. Here is where I am so far, I still need to buy a few more things to build up to 1500 points (a third rifle/mg platoon, and another four 25 pounders, jeeps to tow my AT, and probably some better tanks to give me some more options.)

Orphan Brigade Diorama WIP 2

Well I'm waaaay behind schedule on this. I've still got to finish about half of the highlighting, paint the flag, base it, stain the base, and make some sort of "label". Work has been kicking my butt so I'm stopping for tonight and I'll be working on this all day tomorrow (My deadline is 5:00 PM!) Here are a few closeups. I should have finished pictures tomorrow.
