Right now I'm trying to clear off the multitude of leftover projects from last year and progress is being made!
I finally finished the remainder of Light Bobs for my "Hubbardton Project" and this will allow me to field a proper Battalion of AWI Lights for use in a Hubbardton Black Powder game, or just about any other AWI game I want. Ok ok no flock yet but it's coming! These figs are 15mm Musket Miniatures (the casualty figures are as well).
|Consolidated Light Battalion for Black Powder - the Hubbardton Project|
|AWI Casualties #2|
|6 British and 3 Continental/French/Prussian/etc Casualties for Black Powder|
|Unfinished generic blue coated horse and musket casualty stands. All will have red facings|
Some World War II Progress although they haven't been finished or flocked yet. 2 Soviet Weapons Stands. Plastic Soldier Company 15mm
|Picture is worth a thousand words.|
I also have a huge pile of assorted kit to affix to the models to give them that real "US Forces" look to them. I never saw a vehicle going into combat that wasn't loaded with gear. My vehicles should capture that look somewhat I think. GIs take everything but the kitchen sink with them wherever they go.
I never saw my own soldiers so happy as when our Fire Direction Center (M577/M1068) showed up in Kuwait before we all crossed the berm in 2003. "are you guys happy that you can train now?" I asked them "Hell no, sir. the microwave and coffee pot are in the track!"
So there you have it. War is hell...
