Happy Easter! And it has been a happy easter for me, with wargaming, painting and of course good company and good food 😉
I’ve certainly haven’t been idle in my painting. 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.
And 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 🙂
Last 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 😀
