On their way to Chicago
Over the weekend I started laying out my miniatures contribution to the Guns Of April project, just so I could get a good sense of my Napoleonics collection so far. I was pretty happy to see it all arrayed in an almost march past-type set up. With command stands and casualty markers (and pesky Frenchies) there are well over 300 models ready to do battle on our little (12'x6') slice of the Spanish countryside.
After snapping a few fairly crappy shots (the one above being the best) I started packing it all in my lovely custom foam trays, ordered from my first choice in miniature storage and transport, Battlefoam.
In this tray we have the British Divisional commander, four Brigade commanders, eleven casualty markers, and the French Leger unit I finished up for Mr Pauwels.
In the second tray we have the 1st KGL Hussars, the 3rd and 4th Dragoons, the 2nd Caçadores, two small units of the 60th Rifles, two RHA guns, one, RA gun, and six disruption markers.
In the third tray we have the 2nd Bttn of the 69th Ligne (for use by Mr Dulaney), the 1st and 2nd Bttns of KGL Line, the 79th (Cameron) Highlanders, the steeds for the 11th French Dragoons, and both ox-drawn water carts, as well as the last three disruption markers.
And finally, in the fourth tray we have the two large units of Foot Guards (2nd and 3rd), as well as all the British flags (from the Flag Dude).
And here's the stack : )
These models are now all on their way to Chicago for the big game on Friday night, in the back of a Penske truck piloted by our very own Joe Krone (also Global Events Manager for Battlefront Miniatures).
With any luck everything will arrive safe and sound.
