My cup runneth over. This time courtesy of Pen & Sword Books, with this absolutely splendiferous tome:
Oh, delight, joy, happiness.
I have only peeked at the contents. I want a good, quiet, clear space to look carefully, perhaps with a glass of Port within reach.
However, I am applying myself to concrete matters too. My Brigadier Grant inspired order of Foundry (Perry sculpts) stove pipe shako British have arrived, and I have started on eight centre company men. I thought I might try an idea or two taken from Tim Beresford's current masterclass series in Battlegames magazine. His techniques seem complex for a simple fellow like myself, but I thought I might try his varied undercoating approach. He argues for black undercoat for 'dead' areas of colour, such as on muskets, and white for cloth. I can understand that, so I have begun on our fine fellows from the Peninsular campaign.
