Well I have almost got everything done for the big game in Montreal this Sunday. It really has been a pretty busy time while at the same time I have worked almost every day. Essentially do a shift, come home eat something and start painting.
I had hoped to have a few more new style casualty stands done, but I find the little dice holders time consuming to make, I will have to come up with a different plan if I hope to have one for every infantry battalion and cavalry regiment. I had also hoped to have some Prussian Landwehr mounted regimental officers done, but the ones from Warlord Games only arrived yesterday.
Not all this stuff is new, but I have painted all these casualty figures and 4 of these sub commanders over the last week or 2. Also finished off 24 figures for RIR9 to complete that regiment and I just finished basing 24 figures for 2/1st Landwehr Regiment of the Elbe last night. I will post some photos of them next week.Analogue Hobbies, kindly gave me 3 of these Cuirassiers a while ago, finally got around to painting one of them, a little rushed maybe but a very nice figure.
Curt's advice and used 3 slots. In my upcoming game, I will use each slot to represent the damage taken to Stamina (BP rules) for each of the 3 battalions in the regiment. I hope eventually to have one for each battalion, so each of the dice can be used to represent different attributes for each battalion. But let's see how this goes first.
I also have a bit of a surprise coming up: A new type of game, a new era and a trip back to my cultural roots. Any guesses?
