New Soldiers & New Paints

"No short jokes..."

I'm pretty excited about starting a new army myself. 2013 will be a year of new paint colours as well as figuring out new techniques in army painting to help get these guys out on the table.  After seeing the gorgeous game put on by The Guns of April at Adepticon I have no doubt this is going to be fun. 

I'm also really looking forward to using Black Powder. It's been a while since I tried out a new rule system and after watching The Guns of April playing their game I know this is probably the best system for me as they were laughing and having a good time rather than worrying about the best tactic.

and so...    À la guerre!


  1. Here here my friend! I am very excited as almost every aspect of the hobby will be a new experience for both of us. :)

  2. Looking forward to seeing both of your Napoleonic exploits this year chaps!!!

  3. Great start guys! I love what you are doing.

    1. Thanks! Yep, both of us basically starting from scratch. :-) Glad to have you on board Rodger!

  4. As Ray says, looking forward to your armies coming together!!!

  5. Best wishes on your new projects and this blog. I too really enjoy Black Powder for Napoleonics. In fact, I've recently returned to it after a long break. Warm Regards, Dean
