Excellent short on battle of waterloo (only 2 weeks to the bicentenary!)

Really enjoyed this and frankly can't believe it has so few views -  if you enjoy, please spread as then they may make some more!

I recently ordered the new Blucher rules by Sam Mustafa with the Hundred Days card pack, so look forward to coercing a friend to play a game with me on the weekend after the battle.

Also, although I haven't really posted anything of much late I have actually been doing a fair bit of painting. I now have 2 of the Langton 1:1200 ships complete, pushed along by inspirational reading from Patrick O'Brian (and beautiful models they are too); have made a dent in a few 28mm AWI for Muskets and Tomahawks or Black Powder (I have a great love of the uniforms of this war and am enjoying the excellent Rebellion scenario book recently published by Warlord) and am picking up the brush again on an experiment I started off about 6 months ago - 6mm napoleonics -  starting with, you guessed it, the Allied army at Waterloo.

BSG Centurions Indiegogo - Fornax

Don't use the blog for this often but think this is a cool project worth a bump -  check it out and think about pledging

Kiss Me Hardy Ship Cards (1:1200 Naval Napoleonics)

For some bizarre reason I enjoy making the data cards that naval and spaceship games tend to use. My latest offering is attached -  attractive (and more space efficient) ship cards for the Too Fat Lardies ruleset Kiss Me Hardy.

So far I have only done a card for a 3rd rate 74 but if you want to use them for other ships just do a bit of dragging, dropping, and pasting and find a picture of the ship you need on google. Its all editable with powerpoint and was done on google docs, so is accessible to everyone for free, although you may need to save your own version as I have disabled editing on my 'master copy'. If you're confused about what any of the images etc mean then post in the comments and I'll explain -  too lazy to make a full key.

I haven't finished rigging my Langton ships yet but I like how they're looking (and for the price they better look princely!)

Maybe I'll even post a picture? Haven't been much into my blogging since the pulp flurry a while back...
