Keeping Busy

I ordered a large shipment of toys long before Christmas, but the weather has conspired against me. I still wait for the new stuff to arrive. I have wiled away the days reading about the French and Indian War. I have ordered six books on the subject ranging from general history of the war to books on Rogers to a book on the Mohawk valley. I’ve been spoiled for choice and loving it.

I have been creating more tree stands, I have twenty some already but if you are going to game FIW, you are going to need a lot of trees. Here they are in a middle stage.

Inspired by the Silent Invader over on the Lead Adventures forum, I created some inconspicuous shock markers for the Sharp Practice rules. They are simply gravel from my driveway mounted on 30mm bases. A bit of basing materials and bob’s your uncle. I also painted up a left over AWI militia man to pose as a settler on the frontier. This is the first figure I have used a wash over the whole figure. I’m quite happy with the way things have turned out.
