|Friends, Foes, or Bystanders? As yet, unknown…|
|But at least I know their names…|
However, the combination of a 40mm game on the table and the arrival of A Gentleman’s War (AGW) has apparently got my Muse working overtime, since I started thinking about dusting off my long-neglected French Revolution figures to use with the rules. According to my records, I haven’t had them on the table in the entire ten years I’ve been keeping this blog, although my son did run a game at Cold Wars a few years back. With the Scarlet Pimpernel scenarios we were using, we already have a selection of unusual and personality figures to use with the Cameo Roles rules from AGW, and I’ll have to see what else I can create.
That sent me digging through the basement to see whether I had any castings left over from the last round of work on the project. Now, my painted figures are reasonably well labeled and sorted into storage boxes for easy deployment, but the unpainted figures, especially home cast ones, are generally not. It took several hours of search to conclude that I have only a handful of potential new recruits, but at least I now know where all the 40mm Renaissance expansion figures are, and have collected the 40mm NQSYW figures into one location. I set aside what French Revolution expansion pieces I had, and also found some partially painted NQSYW figures to work on while the FRs are being assembled.
I don’t know if it’s possible to have too many miniatures, but, if it were, being unable to find them when the Muse provides inspiration would likely be a sign…At least the collection of molds for casting more is well organized, so I shall hope for some good weather in the near future.
