Hurricane Work, Part 3

Here is a painting trial, of a Saxe-Weilenz grenadier for the NQSYW. S-W has been my proposed opposing force army since 1996; this is the first SW figure I've actually painted.

Hurricane Work, Part 2

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.

Hurricane work

The power is now out. My afternoon project was the S-B engineers for NQSYW.

Not the War of 1812

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.
