Anyways I was fishing around and found some done, done-over, and half-done plastic German battlefront figures from the Open Fire box. Awesome! Most of my eastern front kit is wearing standard feldgrau, so this dude in the smock or zeltbahn shelter half is literally perfect. Granted, this was painted before the days of me reading "nordalia paint formulas" but you get the idea.

|I love how this dude turned out and am going to make a stable of snipers for these games.|
|let me get out of these woods!|
|On second though, how about I get the hell BACK into these woods!|
And of course, a gratuitous shot of the table below, which is now 90% done. I added more flock to the already existing grassy shapes to give it a little more color but still retain that "parched" look of summer. Enjoy the pic of next week's game - Neil Thomas Napoleonics already set up. This will be a portion, or a bath-tubbed whole, of the Battle of Hanau, 1813 when the Bavarians under Wrede took on Napoleon and what was left of his forces. This should be another quick one with 6 to 7 battalions on a side along with some artillery and cavalry for a complete battle. Huzzah!
