AWI Project - Fife and Drum have arrived
When I originally decided to get into the AWI I had decided that Perry Miniatures and Fife and Drum were going to make up the bulk of the miniatures in my AWI armies. I will be focusing on the Americans first and the Perry plastics have been at least starte...

With the anticipation of the new Rubicon jeeps arriving this week (perhaps even today), I decided to pull out the resin Warlord Games British Airborne jeep and get it built. Now this is a fairly old kit but I was immediately disappointed with the quality of...

World War II Project - Horsa Glider - Part VI
This is my attempt to try and do away with the very evident scoring on the cardboard pieces. I'm not sure how successful it really was. I'm not going to go back at this point though, in the end this is just a piece of terrain and I think the average gamer i...

AWI Project - Perry Miniatures Plastic American Continentals
While I have been busy working on the World War II project I have been dabbling in the AWI behind the scenes. It began when I introduced my wife to the move 1776. While it plays a bit fast and loose with history it did grab both of our interests in the peri...
