Now back to the more sensible stuff.

After a few weeks diverted off into the realms of fantasy.
I thought it was high time I got back to the serious gaming and pluging some of the gaps for Haitian Project.

So far I have a number of units for the insurgent forces and also the Free Peoples armies, but wanted to get them to meet somewhere in the middle as the wider plan would be to field enough troops to take on a full British or French Force, much of the narrative of the time takes about the slaves and freemen lacking in uniforms and very often any clothing...

Foundry do some nice Darkest Africa command figures that would do just the trick and with some spare heads knocking about from Trent Miniaures... Well time to get the clippers and drill out...

The bicorne's give me a few more options to mix the units up and the new casualty markers should always prove useful... To useful :-(

Hopefully I should get through these this weekend.

Snowed in - Time for some more GA crewmen.

Hammerhead may well have been postponed due to the snow, but it does not mean I can't get some hobby time in.
This is the second half of the Northstar crewmen box for Ghost Archipelago. I wanted to give this group a more uniform feel so opted for yellow sashes to and scarves to separate them out from the others.

Not sure when they will see varnish due to the temperature being below 0 degrees again, but they will make some useful additions to the on going campaign encounters.

When facing off against the Eastern inspired crew they both look rather good, perhaps better then when I was staring at them with paint brush in hand.

Right back to the asteriods, at least now I have until the 28th April to get them finished for Hammerhead mark 2.
