Making Do --
First, allow me to thank all of those who've posted their wishes for my health. I am feeling better and I thank you all for your concern. While painful, the "gravel" is not nearly as bad as "real kidney stones" -- those have put me in hospital before. The gravel are sort of mini-stones (about like some grains of sand). They are painful and very fatiguing, but they do pass.
Because of all that needs to be done when moving into a new place, I have not been able to get much work done on my "game room" yet; or to do any painting on my RSMs (they're still bare metal). I have, however, been rebasing some of my GNW figures so that they will serve as "Tricorne Wars" figures.
First I tackled the Swedes so that Pete would have some troops to push around while he's been painting his. He had two full battalions painted along with a general for the last game.
While I've been sidelined with the gravel, I've been working on doing the same thing with my Saxons and Poles so that I can use them to "make do" for Saxe-Bearstein figures. So far I've got three battalions finished, two almost finished and one that still needs a lot of work.
You see, it isn't just re-basing . . . I've also had to re-paint facings so that the figures within the units match each other . . . since "Tricorne Wars" has much larger units than the rules they were originally based for.
I still need to deal with the cavalry . . . and there's only enough Heavy Horse for two 2-squadron regiments or one normal 4-squadron regiment if I repaint.
I can hear some of you now . . . "why not buy some new figures to complete the units?" . . . I would except that they are no longer available . . . and don't mix with anything else. They are some of Lance Runolfsson's "Blood Axe" miniatures. They are quite rough and chunky . . . very easy to paint and I like them a lot . . . but he's not been in business for years now.
So, right now, I'm just "making do" as best I can.
