Joy of Six are Go

So it's nearly 6.30 am and all is ready to be loaded into Lee's car in less than an hour. My son is about to be dragged out of bed, though he will be more than happy to be on the get go. Looking at my pile of stuff it seems a little light but I am sure Lee is making up for it with not just his troops but also the boards.

Hope to see some of you guys there later, doors open at 10am, we are rolling up at 8am so we can get set up and start the game.

Of course I could not help but buy the new released on the day figures, French in 1815 uniform and also in Greatcoat. Line infantry and skirmishers. I need to get the new artillery crews and some flags today. At least I have nine battalions to count against these twenty four purchased. A small blip soon to be painted flat again :-)

Igor even had a love letter for me, well until he explained the kisses were in fact gravestones! OOps

My son was well received and had a rare old time of it, though today I think will top the Saturday. I have had the tour before but it was great to do it a second time and it was a treat to see how the figures are made. Sorry forgot the camera!!!
