With the time on my hands and the power miraculously restored, I have been finishing off this engineer company. The picks and shovels are from a discontinued Meisterzinn mold owned by Chris Palmer. That should be enough engineers to get me through the planned siege game in a few weeks, but my plan says that it will be a full battalion by Charge organization when I'm done.
It has been very busy the past two weeks. I got to visit a War of 1812 location, Mackinac Island:
But we went to the Grand Hotel rather than the fort. We were up for a ballroom dance weekend, which was a lot of fun, but the weather was awful on Sunday morning when we had some exploratory time. The fort was closed for the season as well.
If we do this again, we'll add some tourist time to the agenda.
Meanwhile, I'm preparing to set up the NQSYW fortress for a siege game in a few weeks, so I expect to have miniatures activity to report soon.
I post a little about my ongoing projects, recent games, how I got to where I am, and where I'm going, as time away from the workbench, and a somewhat busy life, permits. I'll try to keep cooking and ballroom dance down to a minimum, but they do seem to take up a lot of time.
This is my really short, no explanation included, list of projects: 54mm Medieval Mayhem (skirmish), 40mm French and Indian War, 40mm NQSYW, 40mm French Revolution/Scarlet Pimpernel, 40mm Renaissance, 25mm Dark Ages (Saxons and Vikings), 25mm Darkest Africa, 25mm Fantasy, 1/72 scale Bronze Age, 1/72 scale 2nd Punic War, 1/72 scale fantasy (travel skirmish), 6mm Ancients (travel DBA), 6mm Fantasy (travel HotT), 6mm Spanish Civil War.
