Black Powder

I played Black Powder for the first time down the club with Simon, Dave and Steve. We played the French army against a Brunswick, Nassau and Dutch/Belgium allied force. Overall an excellent evening played in the sporting and gentlemanly spirit of 19th Century generals with the Black Powder rules set. Below are some nice photos from the iPad, Simon and Steve are the Generals, I hope they don’t mind me using their images on the web. They also painted/procured the armies and very nice they are too I’m sure you’ll agree. They are 72s.

6mm napoleonics

I bought a load of 6mm Baccus British Napoleonics on eBay. I intend to play 2by2, Black Powder and Polemos and I’ve picked up the rule books. I am going to use 40mm fronts to the bases but am still uncertain on what depths to get for infantry/cavalry/artillery.

Here are some pics of the infantry. As bought first…

And now as painted, this is my test paint only and probably the colours are a bit wrong but I intend to paint the rest the same.

I’ve enjoyed painting at this scale and it was quite quick. I used 0 and 3 point brushes and it took about an hour and a bit.
