As we enter the Yuletide season, I am jumping in with Santa's elves and making toys for Christmas. This has been my first chance to paint up an entire unit of my Wooden Wars British infantry, and field test them for Wooden Wars.



Apparently it really does pay to buy that officer's commission!

For more pics, swing on by my website

I think that last picture is what Napoleon pictured in his head right before Waterloo.

The drummer's got a charmed life, too.

Just as long as he doesn't join Spinal Tap!

Ashenduke- I think you are totally on the money! Best I build some hill terrain for my British army!

Fantastic stuff. Does it transpose well to Naval Napoleonic engagements? Capt Aubrey with his trusted Jack Tars and Marines …

Royal, funny you should mention that. I have already mocked up 2 1/2 foot long cardboard "sloops" with knock-overable masts, gunnl's, ship's wheel and rudders, as well as naval style gun carriages. Ships maneuver and you fire your broadsides of 4 guns. Mayhem ensues.

Very easy to add in jolly boats and a coastal fortress out of blocks.

still working out how to do a two decker.

you are starting to see my madness- erm- the power of Wooden wars!

These figures just seem so right. Congratulations

The fact that you actually knock them over with projectiles is priceless. Very well done. I am sure the games are an absolute hoot.

Thieses- you would be amazed at how cromulant period tactics are when you are actually using real projectiles (rubber balls) and when a battery of guns hits- oh the woodmanity!

Cheers and Happy Christmas to all!
