Painting ECW units and testing WW2 rules

Not a lot of wargaming or painting done this past weekend due to disruption from other necessary activities taking priority. However, with what available time there was, I did manage to complete a unit of Dragoons to add to my English Civil War armies. At the rate I am going in a couple of months I should have sufficient to have an ECW game using One Hour Wargame rules and a scenario.

ECW units completed so far
Latest addition - Dragoons
I did manage to squeeze in a WW2 game yesterday. I have been messing around with some rule changes for a few weeks now. It has been the usual case of some changes worked and some didn't. Anyway, while I had little time to play over the weekend, I did have time to ponder the rules and a scribbled set of rules was completed. I am now playing through some test games while typing up rule changes before I forget them, and trying to slim them down to fit on one page with a readable font size.

WW2 game in progress with Allied troops supporting a Churchill tank.
Over the next week or so I will get the opportunity to play out a siege game as part of the French Indian War campaign (see Palouse Wargaming Journal).

    1. Thank you. Looking forward to having a small game in a month or so.

  2. Yes, good progress on TWO fronts!

  3. Peter- Plenty to keep you occupied there- well done on your ECW Progress with a lot done so far...look forward to your next French Indian War Campaign - will we see the Vauban styled fortress? Cheers. KEV.

    1. I hope we see the new fortress in action!

    2. Mostly likely there will be a skirmish as the besiegers forces close in, followed by the siege using the fortress.
