So, never got round to finishing the last Chronicle but this has been sitting in posting tray for ages. Now might be a good as time as any in finishing it off as am off work today in preparation for an exam tomorrow. (And no i am not slacking before you ask, have already done a mock this morning!)
But anyway other hobby news, have been doing stuff when i have a free moment but no photos as of yet. A nice mix of minis including some Infinity ones. Just had to buy some after they which caught my attention. Very nice sculpts, just want to paint them well now so have also been adding to my blog list by seeking out ones with Infinity minis. This ultimately led me to Studio Giraldez and the home of the guy who paints the studio figs. Very nice log just amazed at how he manages the detail. Talented painters are those Spaniards.
Anyway that's about all on that front so without further ado back to chronicling!
Chronicle 1 - the continuation
Of course these were just imaginary battles to re-enact Sharpe's engagements so no rules as such (besides this was before i was introduced to the whole wargaming thing), just lining up of the soldiers and knocking them over when they were shot with cries of pain and explosions. But with a limited amount of figures it often involved the Russians fighting themselves, but all in all a good time was had.

However while are on the 1:72 scale story, after GW superseded them, they weren't forgotten and at a later stage i revisited them and added to their numbers again. On the pretence of homework, i decided to try and create a diorama of the battle of Waterloo for a French project at secondary school, however with all best laid plans it never happened...although i did end up with some scots guards and les Bleus backed up by cavalry for the French and artillery for the british. They now sit in a pile in storage but it was fun digging them out.
