On the right side we've got a the following - A Napoleon command stand, a British artillery battery, some mortars 3 big infantry battalions (1 Canadian, 2 Portuguese), some native Americans and a parcel of WW2 Russians. All of the Nappy stuff will be needed for my game this summer at Historicon. If you're coming to the con let me know as I'm reserving choice commands for Challenge participants!
Down the left side you've got the fort from the defensive terrain challenge. All bunch of 15mm FOW stuff and some WW2 German Pioneers and the 2 Ellies. Of all the things I made during this year's Challenge, I think the fort will see the most use as it works for multiple time periods and I think came out rather nicely.
As we move to the "other side of the river" there's more Nappy / War of 1812 stuff with two gunboats, a British Naval Landing party and some crewman.
On the hill, there is all the stuff I painted for "Frostgrave". Why did I succumb to the Frostgrave virus? Really two reasons, one the games structure which is essentially a cross between Saga and D&D appeals to me and second (to my great surprise) my son has started playing D&D at college and I'd like to support his return to gaming any way I can.
The Templars on the left were down midway through the challenge, as was the Saurian rider but the rest of the stuff was purchased on the last Friday, prep'd & primed on Saturday and painted on the last day of the challenge.
Of course behind the mountain is the USS Wasp, which be the centerpiece of my game and was a lot of fun to both build and paint. Of course, I haven't figured out where to store her.
We're in brickyard by the clay pit which is used to make bricks. One time when Sean was four he got away from us and ran right into the clay to help with the demonstration. My wife ran in after him and got stuck and then I tried to help her and fell over - it was a grand mess with our son cackling maniacally as if he planned the whole thing....
Right after this picture was taken, my son picked me up and dangled me over the clay. I had to remind him that I'm paying for college tuition.
I bought my first historical miniatures in Williamsburg also!
