Here is the first group of French, some carabiniers.
The second group, eight voltigeurs:
Right, back to this after a three year break (too many straps on Napoleonics, I need to paint them infrequently). Sharpe, Harper and the 95th Rifles:
My British Naval landing party. All Britannia figures with guns from the Foundry pirate range that I happened to have lying around. The boats are resin from Minimi Miniatures.
The boats, I added a tiller bar and rudder post from matchsticks because I wasn't keen on the flat sterns:
The first landing party ashore:
And finally, a group shot of everyone.
I painted another boat (bought from a manufacturer at Colours one year but I forget who) and rebased a load of barrels and boxes I had in the drawers. The ones shown here are from Pardulon. Don't worry, I'm not going to show them all.
My first building for this project is a small semaphore tower. Somewhere for my naval landing parties to raid.
I'm not going to use the rules I've chosen as written, (of course not) they're a little clunky by today's standards.
I'm going to streamline them a little to make it easier to get new players up and running very quickly.
To this end I'm looking at having as much information on the action cards as I can, with all constant values pre-determined such as '+2 for Veterans shooting' which will, instead be included in the basic numbers on the veteran characters' cards.
Here's an early example that will be changed (I've already decided) but it gives an idea of what I'm after.
Condensed down to these. Each character gets an action card and a shooting card for each firearm.These print out at 60mm x 90mm to fit my laminating pouches.
