Dusted off my old Airfix (Dapol) windmill, applied some tlc and weathered it a bit; followed by giving it a smaller footprint base.

A round up of my gaming projects; so lets see whats cooking ...
The Kingdom Of Wittenberg
Currently in the planning stage for the next part of the Begovian War (the 40mm collection will be in action again); before it kicks off the Begovians will receive an uplift in the shape of some new look Janissary infantry and Kapikulu cavalry; sculpts started (I wasn't going to do another mould but why not 😀 ). I will probably do a couple more border skirmish style games before the campaign kicks off.
Samurai - Sengoku Period (40mm)
Casting (and assembly) continues for the Samurai armies.. command and most of Ashigaru prepped for painting; samurai both on foot and mounted still to be done
Carry On Chaps
The sequence of games around the pyramidion artifact, last game was set at an airfield
is now coming to a close; last game will be attack on the Villains Lair (the table layout and scenario remain undefined).
For Ye Kinge (40mm)
Simmering on the backburner, designing a campaign - concept: Wittenberg will try to seize the Hoflandt, Saxe-Jarlsberg and Monrovian will try to hold it.
These chaps have been waiting way too long to get into action on the table ... Scots mercenary regiment..
The Nothelm Chronicle
A tinker-time project, so far have sorted through the figures I bought off Ebay and a few I already had. The forest outlaws are ready for play ...
hmm! .. plenty to keep me busy - game on 😎 🎲

The PDF can be obtained from here ...

The bridge over the river Oudear linking Fenwick and Monrovian territory at Pinzendorf is very well defended by Monrovia. The Duke of Fenwick has decided an assault would not be a sensible course of action and has another plan in mind.
About a mile below the bridge at Pinzendorf is Blotwitz; here are the wharfs where cargo is handled for trans-shipment via pack pony over the non-navigable section of the river Oudear to the north.
The wharf at Blotwitz is not very busy,.....
