Re: 3rd Bn Pskov Infantry Regt - 1812

They're so horrible, you should post them to me immediately for disposal, and I shall keep them out of the public eye . . . yes, that's it :D

Oh God yes, it's quite amazing.

A few of the long-standing blog with campaign storylines should think about doing something similar.

Re: French 1672 - First Figures

Oh, those are dreadful. Send them to me immediately, and I will ensure they never see the light of day :D :D :D :D </*tongue firmly in cheek>

Re: Battle of Jankau 5th March 1645

What rule set were you using?

Re: French 1672 - First Figures

You've done an excellent job with the Northstar 1672 line!

I've generally not been a fan of the French in a helmet (the uniform, NOT the figs) but now I am a bit tempted to get my own!

Re: Battle of Fornovo Project Ahoy!

I'm interested in seeing this progress!

I have two blogs on my blogroll who are doing the Italian wars, and they're quite an eye candy treat. I can't wait to see how yours come out.

Since Front Rank Doesn't make t...
