ECW new forces WIP

There's a force of Royalists in progress around here...

bare metal and base coated

dark under coat and first colors
I am planning on a force of 3-4 Horse and 5 Pike and Shotte to be in mostly reds and greens - hailing from Wales, so the general will have a fun multi-staged name.

Little wars ... with little men

My youngest son has had some time with the RISK pieces on the floor ...

RISK pieces form a battle formation
With the Cavalry in columns, infantry in mass and doing crew duty with the guns along with a few scouting parties to van and flank ... do you think he's been influenced by the SHAKO games at all?

Gingerbread Millenium Falcon = creation for 2015

crashing thru a forest, the Millenium Falcon (in gingerbread)
A family tradition continues ... this time with a space ship feeling.

We'll be eating it on New Years Eve.

Happy New Year to everyone as the blog celebrates 100,000+ visitors!
