Progress Report

I haven’t been super productive over the past weeks, but I have accomplished a few things. See pictures below.

Microarmor bases for Spearhead

The Spearhead bases were a lot of fun to put together. I’m using the direction the turret (or fixed gun) is pointing to indicate the front of the base, which gives me quite a bit of freedom to run roads and other terrain features against the grain. Should keep things from getting too samey. The towed Pak-40 is too ambiguous, in regards to front-of-base; it was a dumb idea to point the prime mover directly at a corner.

Based a few of Thomas's extremely well painted Essex figures for Regimental Fire and Fury command stands.

Leader stands for Lasalle. Divisional commander on the left, and a sub-commander on the right.

I’m supposed to be working on finishing up my battery for Lasalle, and have, in fact, painted limbers and a howitzer, but I’m dragging my feet on painting crew and horses for the limbers. I don’t know why, exactly, but painting artillery is my least favorite part of horse and musket gaming.

    WWII, Confederates, Napoleonics – no one can accuse you of lacking variety.

    Lovely work on the micro stuff- the detail on the bases especially.

    Cheers,

    Pete.

    Excellent work on those bases. They have such a realistic and verdant look to them. I am looking forward to seeign more of those tiny dioramas/works of art.

      Thank you. They’re fairly quick (and super fun) to do-there should be quite a few of them coming up over the next months.
