Which way to victory?

Due to being very busy for our huge re-fight of the Battle of Lutzen (1813), showing this weekend at Sheffield Triples, progress on the terrain making has almost ground to a halt over the last few weeks. Once it is over I am going to take some serious time out to get on with some terrain boards and buildings. One of the projects will be the Ardennes "snow terrain" game, which I am hoping to show at Partizan II in September.

In the meantime, here is my most recent League of Augsburg command base, showing a senior French officer, perhaps even Luxembourg himself, asking directions for Neerwinden. The figures are all Foundry, except the mutt, which is of dubious provenance!

As the release of Beneath the Lily Banners 2 draws closer, I am gaining renewed enthusiasm for the period and hope to get a few more units done in the near future. Alas, there is never enough time to do everything that one would like, and whilst the shotgun approach to painting is enjoyable - I have just completed a Sikh Wars command base of all things! - it makes it harder to finish anything off and get it on the table.


  1. Nice looking base, what's in the box??

  2. Hi Ray. It contains Milady's finery upon which gentlemen remain silent!!
