Another Good Week

My first idea
With Pete's help I now have 3 SFF unit patches. My first idea was a oval patch,but Pete also did a
triangular 1 which in the end is the 1 I'm going to use.

 I've found 2 companies which can make the patches so I'm going to email them and get a price.

 Painting wise I've finished the Lewis gunner and 'Hero' Officer for the BUF. Yes even the BUF have hero's.

 I seem to be in command of the Anglican League at the next big game at Evesham, so I'm going to try and make an assault company for the game. This figure will be one of them.
 Allan and I have been talking about civvie rules to add on to Ook's 'Went The Day Well' rules. Here are my first 3. Spies need civies to hid amoung, so these should add somthing extra to the games.

Things I Finished This Week

 My first BUF unit, all of them are Empress Minitures. Most have had their hats cut off and I've added British helmets. I've got a Artizan Lewis gunner on the way to give them some fire power.

 I've also got some guns for the big game, 1 french and 1 German. Got to find some crew figures next.

Who's Where

So now you seen the map, here's a who's where list.
The Anglican League have just taken Wedmore (in the second Tring game) and now control that village and the town of Cheddar. The victory and capture of Wedmore has taken a lot of presure of the Anglican League and freed up a lot of their troops. They failed to get arms to their supporters in Burnham-on-Sea (in the first game at Tring) and don't know if there are any left after a Government crack down in the town. They would still like to take Weston-Super-Mare and control all of North Somerset.
Anglican League Militia. Warlord figures with Woodbine heads.


Officer of unknow unit. Empress figure Warlord right hand andWebley pistol, Dixon horse. 
The BUF are on the back foot with the Somerset Freedom Fighters (SFF) having 3 road blocks on the main road between Bristol and Bridgwater. Lord Winterfield (BUF leader in Somerset) is also losing some of his personal control to Royalists who now have troops in Bridgwater as well as Bristol. With the Anglican League taking Wedmore the BUF must reinforce their garrisons in Axbridge and Cross or they may lose them to the Anglican League.
The SFF have 3 road blocks on the main road. 1 at Churchill and 2 between Bridgewater and East Brent at the bridges. But they are being pulled in to defending fixed poistions against superior forces, which may cost them soon.
