The weekend I remember to take my figures and camera to the club and there is next to no terrain.  Worcester Wargames Club has a load of terrain stored in a members garage who only lives 2 minutes away from the venue we use.  It all went wrong and none of it was available when we were setting up as he was stuck in traffic in Derby!?!?!  Still with a little messing about two games were still put on with what could be rustled up.  One was my 7yw 10mm.  The game was an allied attack, with French reinforcements coming on slowly, Black Powder variants were used for both games.

Some of the French reinforcements:

A view of the Germans shaping up to attack: 

A Hanoverian Brigade:

The other game was the Battle of Alford in 28mm, at 1-8, and this is not the chaps entire English Civil War collection:

All in all a good pair of games enjoyed by everyone.

Early Napoleonic Russian Garde Hussars

These chaps have been painted for a guy in France.  Again AB and again they are fantastic. 

I had to send them off before I could take photos of the completed models.  e wanted them before he went on holiday.  Here are some hussars from the same period I sold on ebay a while back.  They show edging on the shabreque, vandyck I think it is called.  

It is painting these that started me taking commissions.

AB Early Cuirassier Figures

I am never disappointed with the AB, these were as ever a pleasure to paint.  At some point I am going to have to paint my own figures.  The light blue facings are the Emperors Cuirassier regiment.

The following are the Chevalier-Garde, the trumpeters lacing was a right pain.

I have three curassier units, one hussar and three dragoon units.  All 6 figure strong.  I love painting AB's.

AB Napoleonic Russian Grenadiers

Painted these for a guy in Scotland.  Sweet miniatures.  Painted as the Grenadiers for the Pskov and Old Ingermandland Regiments.

And a few different views, I loved painting these guys. 

AB, a joy to work with they really are.
