Celts and Napoleonic's



I had two lots of post in the last two days. First up was two copies of Crusader's March Attack Napoleonic rules for Corp size and up games. Just had a quick flick through and it looks like they could be used with the figures based the way we have them with a few changes. Not that we are actively looking for other rules but neither am I blind to them. Northstar have a sale on them at the moment down from £20 to just £5 so I picked up a set for Lee in case they are useful.

I also bought two boxes of Gallic Warband and a box of Gallic Command. These I plan to paint up for playing over at Kev's as you can never have enough Celt's it seems. I need to get these washed in watered down Dettlo as primer finds it hard to stick to them. They are quite rubbery so I can see it being fun to get them done.

I plan on getting movement trays fr them to cut down on the need to touch them. These will be for Hail Caesar games. Of course this will bump up the plastic section of the mountain but hopefully not for long.

  1. Can't wait to see the finished HaT models. Been thinking of using them for some coming projects so will be interesting to see what they look like painted and based up.
