Blue Moon Rebel Field Hospital

Regimental Fire and Fury requires a negative morale modifier for "heavy casualties."  The rulebook suggests that a suitable marker be placed on the table.  What could be more suitable than this set?

Even More 18mm Blue Moon Rebel Infantry

I painted up six packs of Blue Moon rebels in one go so that I could have six figures of each pose.  That way I could really whip through the figures, as I glue six figures to each popsicle stick.

This gives me 60 more bases to add to the 40 bases I had finished last month.

18mm Blue Moon Texas Command Stands

I have not been posting much lately, but I have certainly been painting.  I finished 168 figures in June.  Here are the first bunch, a group of four command stands for Texas regiments.  All figures are Blue Moon.  Bases are Litko with Wargames Accessories metal sheets on the bottom.  Flags are from GMB.

Lord Ashram Contest

As many of you know, Lord Ashram's House of War is going on hiatus while its author adjusts to a second baby and the loss of gaming space that involves.

He is running a neat contest where readers can win a free copy of Sam Mustafa's "Maurice."  Go check it out and pay tribute to one of the best wargaming blogs out there!

More 18mm Blue Moon Rebel Infantry

I spent most of April painting these 120 figures.

I changed my style a bit on those hats, opting for two tone shading instead of my usual drybrush over black.

The Blue Moon figures certainly reward the extra time spent in painting two tones on everything.

I went with more butternuts and browns on these figures.  They have some greys, but not many.

I have read some people complaining that the figures are too large to fit on standard 1" x 3/4" bases.  These bases are 25mm by 15mm, smaller than the standard bases, and the figures fit just fine.  It is snug, but I like that look for massed ranks.

I have another 180 of these figures to prep.  Soon I will be able to play most scenarios with nothing but Blue Moon rebels.
