Just a little WIP shot of some Perry plastic AWI British with Victrix Napoleonic arms/muskets and also Wargames Factory fur capped Grenadier heads. I wanted the figures in more skirmish poses than the marching and trail arms that come in the set. I also thought that Grenadiers "must" be wearing bearskins - even for the Saratoga Campaign.

My buddy Scott and I just finished an excellent playtest today. Suffice to say we had a great time and really enjoyed the rules. Below is a shot prior to the game with additional "turn counters".

My buddy ordered a large pack of these smaller turtle ships called Chungnugong, and said he had too many and gave me 10 of them. They are smaller versions of the larger Geobukseon turtle ship. They are slightly smaller than the Panokseon, but have the armored rooftop like the larger turtle ship.

Here are the two mounted commanders that came with the Victrix Austrian Grenadiers; along with the left-over foot figures.

Here are the two combined grenadier battalions - one each Germans in all "white" and Hungarians in blue "tights". Still have several spare figures for skirmishers to do, as well as the two mounted commanders.

Although I don't intend to build up an actual Napoleonic Austrian army, I always liked the look of their grenadiers - particularly their odd-shaped bearskins and also the Hungarians in their sky-blue breeches with yellow/black piping. Couldn't pass up a box of the Victrix plastics and was able to break them down into two 24-man battalions - one each German and Hungarian - with a few spare figures for skirmishing. The set also comes with two mounted officers as well; quite a bargain box, IMO. Here they are with a fresh coat of Minwax stain.

Here are the ships that come with the "At The Height Of Battle" starter set. My buddy is painting his set up and once he's done, we'll have a play test or two.

Here's a squad of Perry French Foreign Legion to participate in the Western Desert Campaign. They can also be broken down into two smaller sections each led by and NCO.
