On Ebay I found a collection of 56 Airfix Confederates in the marching pose; my personal favorite. As a bonus, they were in an original box. I also bought 9 books from the series "The Uniforms of the British Yeomanry Force 1794-1914. If only I had these books before painting so many of my Peter Laing cavalry!
Finally, I broke down and ordered fromOn Military Matters a copy of Miniature Wargames with Battlegames #402. As I just bought #400, I figure it would be around December before I could buy 402 in the local bookstore. The reason for wanting this particular issue is the "1643 Memoir" rules, based on Bob Cordery's Memoir of Battle rules, which are among my favorite rules. It will make coming home from camping a little less painful. And hopefully will kickstart my Peter Laing ECW project.
|This collection will give me 4 more regiments of "Little Wars" infantry.|
