The figures are Old Glory 15mm and boy were they fun to paint! All of this 10mm painting of late had me remember just how much fun and easy 15mm is to do, especially with figures who have exaggerated equipment like the OG 15mm figures. I took some pictures of the expressions on the men, and it highlights what I love about OG figures. You dont get this kind of personality with block 10mm. I could probably have done more like highlights and more specific webbing colors, but it's not going to matter at 3 feet and they look good to me. Progress is progress!

Getting all of that painted will be a feat, but it will be a major goal completed for the last few years, and what better way to celebrate a completed goal than to use all of them on the table in a MASSIVE Germantown 1777 MEGAGAME. Readers of my blog know that when I affix the MEGAGAME title to a game, it's something to behold!
Besides Saratoga, Germantown is one of my all time favorite battles from the AWI and I'm anxious to set it up on the table and play. I've purchased the board game GERMANTOWN: WASHINGTON STRIKES from Decision Games to get a feel for the battle before planning the tabletop scenario.
I'm also looking to my buddy Bryan L's modifications for "Hold the Line!" to see if those rules would be better suited for a massive, multi player game. more to follow! Meanwhile feast your eyes on the great detail from these troops - but I implore you gentle reader, overlook the bad paintbjobs!!!!

That's all for now. I hope everyone is staying healthy!
