I just thought I would share a quick 'Paint Table Saturday' post today. Nothing too earth shattering, but the last few bits and pieces needed for the upcoming 'Witchfinder General' game. It has been slow progress of late, with painting restricted to the mornings or evenings, due to the temperatures. Not that you will find me complaining, especially as we are on holiday, but when the paint dries on the brush before you have time to get it on the model then it is probably an idea to try something different.
Once again, I seem to have got slightly sidetracked with the little extras and non playing characters, but I am hoping that these will all add to the feel of the game. I did, however take advantage of the fact that the 'Saintly Mrs. Awdry' had hit the golf course the other day and started collecting together the terrain and miniatures required, before having a little play through with the rules.
One of those little extras mentioned are my 'Shaken' markers. I had planned to use a couple of dead or wounded miniatures from either 'Redoubt Enterprises' or 'Warlord Games', both of which I had ordered in advance, but tried something a little bit different instead. I have glued some 'Lego' hens to MDF bases and given them a quick spray with an acrylic aerosol. Now each 'Shaken' unit will have the ignominy of been escorted by their Yellow Chicken until they pass a morale test and rally themselves!
As I am hoping to use the Donnybrook rules from 'The League of Augsburg', albeit in a pared down fashion, the rest of my day will be putting together lists and creating character cards for the different units.
