Both of you who read this blog will know that I am working on a scenario for Historicon 19 using Combat Patrol, called Retreat from Moscow. In a previous post, I showed pictures of my retreating French, but I have been in need of pursuing Cossacks and other troops. I traded with Greg a large box full of Jacobites for some French infantry. In the meantime, I ordered a bunch of Cossacks and other pursuing cavalry from Old Glory. I finished the two bags of mounted Cossacks and will begin working on the bag of dismounted Cossacks soon. If I get those done in time, I’ll begin working on some mounted Russian Hussars and Dragoons.
While I was working on these, I completed a few other odds and ends.
In the box with the Russian Napoleonic figures, Greg had thrown in a squad of winter German infantry. They were mostly done except for boots and flocking.
The guys at work were talking about HeroForge. I wanted to give it a try, so I went to their site and designed a couple of figures. The printing is excellent, with very little indication of layer lines.
I had been looking for Duck Wader for a long time. I recently got one from Mark for Christmas, but I recently found this one on Ebay. It was in terrible shape, and it had been painted in garish blue colors. I “rescued” it, and repainted it. Since I have two now, I am thinking about a scenario with twin Sith Ducks attacking a Rebel base. Hmmmmm.
