3 Squadrons of SYW Cavalry

About three years ago I started a SYW project to go with the Might & Reason rules.  I didn’t know a thing about the war or the combatants and used it as a springboard into serious historical war gaming and actual research on a period.  I have taken a few detours (like painting 2600 AWI […]

British Forces for Freeman’s Farm

Finally some new pictures.  While I havn’t been posting as I needed some time to assess the amount of time I was spending taking pictures and blogging versus the feedback, I have been painting like a madman.  Well, like a madman for me, I’m a very slow painter.

Gaining Even More Mass

After my last post, I wanted to show an even larger grouping of figures.  This is now 4 of my units at 72 men apiece, roughly 300.  This is a fairly average size for a unit in the field during the Saratoga Campaign. Click on them for a much larger image! …and from another angle… […]

Gaining Mass

With my choice to double my previous SYW unit size and go with 72 figures in a unit, I think I am getting the effect I started out to achieve.  With a nuber of units on the board, it is starting to look more like a battle as opposed to some unit markers. I have […]
