Work....such an imposition

Guard Chasseur officer and trumpeter
Not been around at all for the last 3 weeks, working away, so no painting or gaming has been going on. This also meant I missed the annual trip to the WHC for Noel's campaign week which annoyed me immensely - the fact that it was deemed the best week yet coincided with my what you will into that.
I will get a bit of compensation in 10 days time though when I will head up there for a WWII weekend, an Italian campaign game using Gerry's new rules in their finished form. Also, Gerry has kindly invited me to stay on for a couple of days to have a game with just the 2 of us. Not sure what yet, probably a big old Napoleonic bash. Looking forwards to that.

Firing Line Guard Chasseur Regt
When I arrived home there was a big heavy box from Bicorne containing Noel's Firing Line Wurtemburg cavalry, I've not painted any of these before and have spent the afternoon assembling them (lots of seperate sword arms and heads). They look good. Obviously no photos yet but the poses are all very similar to their French Guard Chasseurs, so I've put some shots of them up. As you can see they are very nice figures and have a highly dynamic air about them, the seperate sword arm allows the figure to be cast a point which would not be possible otherwise, this also allows a pistol option
