Played in a small V&B Wing Scale game today. It was a couple of Brigades on each side, British vs. French. It was a practice/familiarization game getting ready for a bigger game we are planning to play in October. The game came out very well with most of our rule modifications working out. I look forward to playing the larger game next month. I have photos, but can't post them from this computer. Will try to get them done tomorrow.

Okay, here is the second try on the second photo. The ships boat is a kit that my friend AJ made up. It is a great little kit, very easy to put together and it is very realistic. It will be even better when I get it stained. Hope you like it.
Here is a photo of my "pirate" ship. It is an eight gun Brig named after an actual Privateer that sailed out of Portsmouth, NH during the American Revolution. There are ten of the 20 figures that I have painted for the game day for the wargame club that I belong to on the ship. My other figures are a landing party including Marines. I have taken them to a friends house so he can use them for the game day next week. I will post a photo when I get them back. I am working on another photo, but I can't get it to post correctly yet.
I have completed the Pirate Boat project. I have the boat painted and rigged and I have twenty figures painted for the game. I won't actually be able to attend the game day, but my friend Phil will be using my stuff. The figures include a crew of ten and a landing party of ten additional figures as well as a ship's boat (a dory). Overall the painting went well and I am pretty happy with the results. Pics will come tonight.
