  3. Wow! CONGRATULATIONS Steven. That's great news. Hope all doing well.

    (Now you have to get used to the fact that in 14 years or so, you will be losing to his superior tactics on the tabletop and wondering where you went wrong with that cavalry brigade :) )

    1. Cheers Darren,
      All are well. Now, if one of my children know what to do when threatened by a Napoleonic Cavalry Brigade on the table ill consider myself successful as a parent! :)

  4. Congratulations and joy to you, Steven! He looks very realistic. Excellent job painting the flesh, very lifelike. 1 to 1 scale? :)

    1. Paul,
      I'm already reading the FM 6-40 to him (Manual Cannon Gunnery). If that doesn't put him to sleep, God help us!

      Hoping he does a better job with Safety and calculating Muzzle Velocity Variation than his old man!

    1. Thank you sir - yes both gaming and production will probably slow down in the short term but although quarterly projections are looking grim, I'm going to try to ensure things eventually pick up! Have a VDV platoon from Rebel Minis waiting for their basecoats!

      That would make a nice Sabre Squadron game :) VDV vrs West German TA :)
