Re: The Percy 'Battle' 1388

Thanks for all the comments.

Re: Darrell's tutorial - Thanks Dave, you just beat me too it!

The Otterburm demo game seems to have been a big hit again. Am interested to know how the new rules played out.
I look forward to finding more pics on the web!

Re: Painting tutorial

Thanks for the positive comments. Much appreciated.

I use enamels for the foot and horses but I also use a wide variety of acrylics for the horses to give a range of tones!

Your other suggestions have been noted - thanks.
