After having taken a 4-month break from this project, the first item on the agenda is to get re-organized. The rules dilemma for the skirmish games is still milling around and needs to be seen to. I have an idea that the blending of Ganesha Games' Song of Blades & Heroes and Song of Drums & Shakos would work for small scale actions. SBH would have material for the nickers and SDS for the troops. I now realize that I have copies of both of the rules although I do not remember getting SDS (!), and with the long week-end here in the US I should cobble together some minis and try it out!
Speaking of minis, there is a post on the Grimsby Mariner blog about more WSS minis coming out soon. I have to admit I am not too interested in the new Foundry range - although if some nice infantry vignettes are produced I could change my mind. There is a new range of minis coming from Ebor Miniatures - check their blog post about WSS minis. Very nice!
And the ships - I am working on replacing the masts - originally made of plastic, to be replaced with brass.
