Continuing to rest and I felt like reading this morning and am working my way through reading Duffy’s book on the ‘45. I have made notes on potential modelling ideas coming out it. Firstly there is a mention of the MacGregors having a punt gun at the battle of Prestonpans. This would work well on the table top as a ultra light gun and make a splendid vignette. Secondly there is a mention of Highlanders carrying scythes in battle, like the ones in the Monmouth rebellion. Again modelling possibilities for a few figures in a mixed unit or separate sub unit. Also intrigued by the sailors present but no idea how to portray them in terms of 28mm figures.
The postman brought three parcels. Some old Robin Hood toy soldiers which I got for the Sheriff and Maid Marion. Secondly some Vendel Miniatures to add to my Middle Earth games and finally a book which I hope will feed into civilian figures and possibly some gaming potentially too.
