Some Slight Progress
Saturday 30th April 2016
Horbury Library - one of WDW's 'outreach' days - 4 battles of the Hundred Years War - 2 against a young lad who did pretty well. Afterwards I passed through Thornhill (near Dewsbury) where a heavy sleet shower almost stopped the traffic.
Sunday 1st May 2016
2 x HaT 8293 WW1 British Infantry (Tropical) - these will go to my WW1 East Africa project.
1 x Mars 72019 Conquistadores
1 x Caesar 025 Conquistadores
The Mars (ex-Revell) have the war dogs but far too many sword-and-buckler men. Renaissance troops for my English or Dutch Colonial army.
1 x Red Box 72051 Militia and Loyalist Troops (1745).
Still looking for suitable horse for the Jacobite Rebellion but otherwise now have a decent number to, at least, skirmish with.
1 x Model Color 70.927 Dark Flesh
Monday 2nd May 2016
Still only 8 degrees. DBM - Tupi v Scots Common - heavy defeat for the South Americans.
Battle for Normandy (SPI boardgame); Little Big Horn (1964 boardgame).

Slight progress on the Renaissance front:
On the left - the Spanish Colonial general is now on foot - seems that his shield has taken damage already!
On the right - the final element for the Safavid Persians - Tufangchis shot.
