No more posts for a while...


...because I'm off to get married! A week on Saturday in (hopefully) sunny Napier in New Zealand, and then a honeymoon in South Africa (combining sun, wine and safari). Luckily I return a couple of days before Salute. I'll be skint, but it will be a great day anyway. I had hoped to post some pics and a short history of the 6th Continental Regiment before I left, but they will have to wait until I return. I am still enjoying playing around with Seth Warner's regiment, but didn't manage to finish it in time. Only 7 more figures to go, though. Here, just for Steve, is a photo of my almost finished Sudan Beja horde. 50-odd figures counting as 6 bases of 10. Back in 4 weeks!

Marriage??

YOU??

Is the girl insane?

There's only one thing worse than marrying a lawyer, and that's divorcing a lawyer!

Congratulations and trust that everything goes as planned.

Will your good lady be attending Salute as a porter the role that all newly weds take the first (and usually last time) they go with hubby to a wargame convention?

All the best for you and your better half Giles. Funny that I'll be in the UK and you'll be in NZ!

I've got my leave pass for Salute - have you? You'll be married by then and a leave pass will be required!! 8O) I hope you have as I'm hoping to see you there!

Salute

Giles

Best wishes!
Been following your Blog with interest.

I have just asked Eureka miniatures if they could post a request for George Washington's (C in C's) guardsmen (C.1778)28mm in Tarleton helmets and fixed bayonets. This is now Eureka 100 Club item 100CLUBHM87. I don't think this item (useful for a full AWI army) is available from any other manufacturer and you or your readers might like to pre-order some??
