I know that the blog has been super quiet recently, although actually I've gotten a ton done... new moderns stuff, some new Armada stuff, and even some stuff for my Vikings! I just haven't gotten to take photos and post them!
Having said that, I DID just purchase the materials for a new project that I am SUPER excited for!
So, soon to begin? My "Retreat from Moscow" project!
Since it is supposed to represent my own current army on the retreat, base sizes and movement tray sizes will be the same as my main French army. Right now I am planning for three units of infantry (half of what my current French army has) with a screening base of light infantry for each one. I will have a single unit of cavalry, although only three will be mounted... there will be a few dismounted cavalry and a dead horse to fill out the movement tray. I will also do two of the sleds. No artillery, as the guns would have been left behind.
I'll be focusing a great deal on the modeling of this project... lots of dead and dying scattered around, scavengers... the whole nine yards. The infantry units will be guys in line because I DO want to make sure they are game-able (even though I never game with my 28s!) But still, I want them to look NICE... time to work on my snow scatter technique!
Anyway, as I get the figures based up I'll post a bit more of the specifics... but I am looking forward to the project!
