AWI

Easter weekend update!

Happy Easter! And it has been a happy easter for me, with wargaming, painting and of course good company and good food ๐Ÿ˜‰

Prussian Line InfantryI’ve certainly haven’t been idle in my painting. ย First up, I finally finished my first unit of Prussian Line Infantry for the 2 big Napoleonic events I am participating this and next year. So now for something different, I am going to paint 2 artillery pieces (a cannon and a howitzer) and some battalion command figures before I start painting more units of Infantry.

 

Anglo-Saxons big unitAnd with my Anglo-SAxon warband for Saga I am done till more miniatures are bought. I painted 2 complete units of Warriors (one unit of 10 warriors and one unit of 12 warriors) within a week. Finishing the last unit yesterday. I am very happy with the result ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

Anglo-Saxons smaller unitI wanted a uniform look with the colour red being predominantly present. And give each unit their own shield design. Overall, the Warband start to look very nice indeed.

 

 

 

AWI battleLast Saturday we had aother get together with the chaps from the Dutch Miniature Wargaming Facebookgroup and it was all about war in colonial America with a game of Muskets & Tomahawks (Didn’t see a lot of that game) and a battlefield with British vs Colonials during the American War of Independence (AWI) using Black Powder.

I really wanted to see Black Powder rules in action, since it’s the rulesset we are using for our Napoleonic battles. And after that day, I can say I like it, it’s not to difficult to understand and plays very quick. But I would like to play a game with the rules myself to fully comprehend them. You learn the rules faster by playing than by scrounging through the rulebook. But the most important thing about a day like that is chatting up with your fellow hobby enthousiasts and about that… Mission Accomplished ๐Ÿ˜€
