Badger Baiting (PeterD and TamsinP)
Who ate all the posts? (TamsinP)
What have you done Ray? Ray? (Dr Venkman)
If Ray deletes my post this time I'll cut his bloody balls off! (PeterD)
Ok this will be my second take on this post. I had a post all ready to go on Tuesday the 6th, but it disappeared into the ether while under final edit from my Minion (ed. That would be Ray!). Murphy's law of backups applied. I typically copy the draft post over to my own blog before it goes live, but schedule it to appear 2 days later than my Challenge day. But, oh course this week I figured that I could catch that up in the evening after Ray made it go live.....
|The sergeant pointing is Front Rank figure. His unpinned coat is more WAS than SYW, but he was too nice not to include.|
|The grenadiers and their officer are Front Rank. More contradictory info on the bags for the grenadier caps, which blue in a contemporary image and descriptions of red. I tried both but liked the red better, not that you can see in this shot.|
|From the left flank. I've added unit labels on the back of the bases complete with an image of a flag. Once again the flags are a major attraction of this army.|
|Now you can see the red bags on the Grenadier caps.|
|I really like the Front Rank officer with his hat off. He looks like he'd invite Messrs. les Anglais to tirez le premier.|
Like the UK, Regina had a major dump of snow this week - 35-40cms from Sunday to Tuesday. I took advantage of the heavy snow to ski to work on Tuesday. I only get to do this rarely since it requires a heavy snow fall without the deep freeze. Most importantly I need to get out before people shovel the selves out as I skiing on the streets and sidewalks.
Finally, I thought I would share this rare footage of Ray following a hard days work at the Minion keyboard and totalling up terrain scores.
To make it easy on Ray's brain I'll do the heavy lifting for him. That's 16 newly painted 28mm figures for a total of 80 points. And I've made a copy Ray - you can do no harm that cannot be reversed!
From Minion Tamsin:
As your post got eaten by Ray (maybe he thought it was a Toblerone, what with them being Swiss?) on Wednesday, it's only fair to get it posted this week as it was submitted in good time.
Another splendid unit Peter. The sixteen figures are worth 80 points and there are two flags so I'll add another two points for those.
