ACW camp and Waterloo Replayed In Glasgow

It won’t have gone un-noticed that I haven’t done much blogging recently. Just too busy......but a couple of things to catch up on. I have managed to paint up some ACW camp figures. Mainly from Perry, they will form the backdrop of the participation game I will be running at the Lakeland Phoenix Wargame Show at the end of June.
A union supply wagon
Misc camp soldiers
Some cooking breakfast
Mule with holder 
Perry Forge set
A mix of stuff from leftovers
A captain and his lady
...and finally stacked rifles
This picture caught my eye in a charity shop recently when wandering around Penrith 
Once removed from its frame and cut down slightly at the base it makes a reasonable backdrop
Coming into its own when I take those atmospheric black and white shots

Finally I am off to Glasgow tomorrow, not sure if other s have been following the Waterloo Replayed project which has been developing over the last couple of years. Sadly i wasn’t organised to get into the game as a player but it was too good an opportunity not to at least go and visit what promises to be the largest 28 mm recreation of Waterloo ever played on a 80’ by 24’ gaming surface. If anybody is visiting I will be there around lunchtime Saturday.
