First off, my darling Wife and Daughter bought me a copy of Donald Grave's "Where Right and Glory Lead! The Battle of Lundy's Lane, 1814" which is a magnificent read. It is definitely the best book out on the Battle of Lundy's Lane and includes some narrative of the Battle of Chippawa and the Siege of Fort Erie. A must for the 1812 enthusiast.
While waiting for more miniatures to arrive from Knuckleduster, I built a large barn and a small meetinghouse/church for my table top. The meeting house needs a little more painting to add depth to the wood lath.
Finally, Scott's First Brigade of the Left Division is nearing completion. Just a 8 more miniatures to paint, base and add flags.
Within a few days, I finished the first of Scott's Brigade. The 9th/22nd is ready for the table. Using the Army Painter Quickshade Strong Tone Dip method, I am able to produce regiments very quickly.
They look like they've been sleeping the in rain for a few days and just crossed Street's creek. I do need to finish the tops of the flag poles yet.
I managed to secure some cash today, so I will be purchasing the remaining 2 regiments, and artillery for Scott's Bridage, including one of Porter's Militia regiments. In addition, I am ordering 3 British/Canadian Regiments plus the Lincoln Militia.
Perhaps I will have everything done for the 198th anniversary of the battle on July 5th.
