Very nice indeed. It's a shame this book won't be ready until Fall of 2012, but I'll wait!

Thanks for the link. Fall 2012 should be the start date for collecting figures.

I meet him a few times at HMGS conventions. A real student of history and very very talented. I have five or six of his printed. Hugh fan.

I admire his Civil War paintings – full of interesting details, but his knowledge about uniforms and equipment of the Napoleonic time is poor compared to his knowledge of the ACW.

In what respects?

I'm a collector of his prints and his French material is excellent and quite accurate.

Thanks for the heads up. That is a must buy for me.

Looks like another great title to add to my to-buy list. Can't wait for next year.

Yep, been waiting on this.

So Clibinarium, while on the subject, are you planning anytime soon to use your incredible talents to sculpt any new AWI figs for Pendraken? If so, what? While I have your attention, any additions to Pendraken's LoA line?

Just curious,

Looks great … and makes me even more PO'ed than usual that we don't have a proper line for the period!

CATenWolde Inactive Member20 Nov 2011 2:43 a.m. PST

Let me amend that – yes, the Eureka line is indeed great, but I simply can't figure out how to game battles properly in 28mm.

Another drain on the Waterhouse coffers…

Try any one of Charles S Grant's "Wargaming in History" books perhaps? evil grin

OK – I suppose it depends on your definition of "properly". In 28mm there usually has to be some compromise in scaling down unit numbers, ground scale etc. But get the essential ratios right and a 28mm recreation of a historical battle (or part thereof) can still be meaningful.

I would urge that 28mm for French Rev makes a lot of sense. The majority of battles were smaller than the Empire period. You can realistically build full OOBs. Rivoli, Lodi, Arcole are all doable.

My Rivoli OOB uses 18 figure French battalions and 24 figure Austrian , all Eurekas. I will have the full Russian 1799 Army of Suvorov, less the Jagers done soon.

I love the ability to field full historic OOBs because most of the time you are only looking at 30-40,000 per side.
