|L'ordre mixte (French for 'what an odd mixture')|
As with much else in wargaming (such as the ACW period) we started with Airfix figures (with Esci, Italieri and some metal figures mixed in) and I still have most of mine. But sadly many are not in a state to be used just yet on the table, being inadequately based on thin card and/or badly painted, or indeed not painted at all. So this is one of the things I did this week.
The other figures I have that are already based are set up for WRG 1685-1845 rules (60mm x 20mm bases) (and before that the classic Bruce Quarrie rules) so I just made new bases by doubling layers of thick cardboard.
