Well, you may think I have been quiet on the hobby front with no posts on this blog for over 9 months but you would be wrong. I have been busy working away on my Quatre Bras project and have now done enough to recreate the battle on the wargames table in 28mm, I just haven’t been posting.

The list includes making/painting terrain, buildings, converting and painting over a thousand infantry figures, plus cavalry, artillery, command and casualty bases/counters for each battalion. 

Most of the figures are from the Perry Miniatures plastic box sets with their metal’s for command. The Wheat fields are teddy bear fur which I ordered on-line but I am not too sure about the colour, I think they need to be a bit more beige in colour. 

There is still a lot more Napoleonic figures to paint for my Sharp Practice and General d’Armee collections but for now I have had my fill of painting Napoleonic and my next posts will be firmly back on my WW2 Chain of Command collections and some more terrain. 

This is going to be picture heavy as there is plenty to show. First off is the casualty bases with dice wells built into the bases to show shock or casualty status depending on which rule set I am using.
