A day off from work and 3 extra sets of hands allows a lot of progress.


We had no Prussians, Lou solved that issue.


After looking at the OB, turns out we need more Russians too, Lou again to the rescue.


Basing and flocking, Even though Bob can't make this convention, he is pitching in.


Hedgerow time.


One board section done with trees and hedges


Elmer's glue, takes a long time to dry, but gets the job done. Alan did most of the hedges


All 3 board sections after finishing hedges and trees.

We still have lots to do before we even think about the snow, which we think will be the last step.

A heat gun or at least a hair dryer could help.
Loving this project, wish I could have helped

Outstanding work.

Just a suggestion, but you might want to remind everyone of the time slots for your games at Cold Wars.

Enjoy the games.

So the decision to go with post 1807 Prussian instead of the 1806 with tricorn?
Pls do tell!

What day do you plan to run this. I will be GM, unfortunately all day Sat due to table schedule, but free Friday for play!

MarshalGreg, I didn't order the figures, but I believe that is the only choice from Old Glory.

Game times are:
Friday 6PM, F197 Eylau, Nightmare in the Snow

Saturday 6PM S194 Eylau, Nightmare in the Snow
