Federales Completed

I've been a busy bee this week knocking out 16 more Federales.  This gives me two more 8 man squads.


I'm less than a month from my convention game so I'm trying to get all the painting done quickly.  This will hopefully give me at least a week or two to tweak the scenario and possibly add some last minute troops if they are needed for balance.  This is my first time volunteering to run a game so not sure how it will go, but hopefully every one will enjoy the game.

For my Federal Army I have 4 8-man squads and 1 MG team.  1 Commander, 1 Staff officer, 1 bugler and 1 runner.  They will be greatly outnumbered by the Villistas, but they have the benefit of hard cover while defending.

Here's a picture of them all together...
39 total troops.  Feels good to have them all done.  It will feel even better when I wrap up the Villistas that pretty much double this army in size!

Hope you are enjoying your Saturday.

  1. Nice looking troops. Rocky. Your baptism of running a convention game should come off without to many hitches. I was 60 yrs. when I entered this hobby, made my own game and hosted it. The experience was a joy! Hoping yours will be the same. If you have fun, then I suspect others will too.

    1. Hey! You upped and changed your blog image. Duh!! I'm tellin' ya, Rocky, this gettin' old is kinda weird. If I was a ninja warrior on the planet Zamazonia, I would most likely be a snail like creature: slow.

    2. Ha! Yeah, the blog asked me if I wanted to link my G+ account. Didn't realize it was going to change my name on all this stuff. I guess I should have read the fine print...bold print... everything in between.

    1. Thanks Fran. Sadly there's not a lot of help that I could find for uniforms. I basically went from some pictures in an Osprey book for this particular time period of the Revolution.
