In preparation for playtesting Ian's Rein-Bow Warriors, his rules require more skirmishing troops than does either Impetvs or To the Strongest!. Ian said, "I need more Hittite skirmishers." I snapped into action and pulled javelinmen from The Lead Pile and set to work. It was only after I was part way through with painting these sixteen figures that I realized the figures on the workbench were not Hittites at all. The figures were actually Babylonians. Sigh. I pressed on and finished them.
Off the painting desk today are four stands of four Babylonian javelinmen. These sixteen figures are Newline Designs. Next time, I will double check the figures before slapping on the paint. More Biblicals are in the painting queue but work returns to the Sumerian project.On the gaming front, a second remote battle of Brawner's Farm is on today's agenda. This time, I face off against Peter (Grid-based wargaming but not always). Peter will step into the role of Stonewall Jackson while I try to lead the Iron Brigade to victory. With a time zone difference of 20 hours between us, I am playing on Thursday while Peter is playing on Friday. Should be fun.
