End of the AWI rebasing

With these cannons come the completion of the rebasing of my 1/72-scale AWI forces.


I will need to get these guys out on the table (using a miniaturized version of Hold the Line) as soon as soccer season is over.


Despite some paint loss at the feet and ankles, I think I have restored these fellows to gamble condition. Fortunately the AWI was a muddy war!


I ended up with a bunch of extra crew that I will use to fill in units and whatnot.


Up next: Club was last night but conflicted with soccer so I missed it (arrgh). I may get a game in with Bruce next week, though. I have some 1/72-scale Roman cavalry to finish and then I may turn my attention to some terrain.

YAY! Always nice to finish a project....one day I may too!

Yes, "finished" is such a deceptive turn. Now if only I had some proper Hessian units and proper grenadiers...

I'm going through the same thing myself - rebasing all my Horse & Musket troops for Black Powder.

I like your artillery crews - lovely work!

Thanks Steven; good luck with the rebasing. A bit tedious but well worth it.
