Happy New Year

Thought I better jump on here and wish everyone a Happy New Year and lay out some resolutions. I ordered Der Kriegkunst rules from Scale Creep miniatures today and am very excited about playing a few games next year. It appears my basing for my Cavenderi troops will work out perfectly for this game and with the small scale engagements I should be able to get some games in soon. I have been inspired lately and have started painting a bit recently, I now have a couple of blogs going Cavenderia and my recent Sudan blog, my New Years' resolution is to split my time between the two and try and post more often. I hope everyone will have a great evening and a great year. I need to know how this Olley painting point thing works so I can keep track next year. Finally, I do not believe I will be making the SYW convention this year but I did get some 28mm Crusador Cuirassiers for Christmas so who knows.

ciao,

Happy New Year.
We hope your circumstances allow going to the SYW Weekend in 2010! You are a good companionable fellow in a game.
Respectfully,
Bill

I'll be interested to hear how you get along with those rules. I'm still on the lookout for a set I like for SYW-era battles.
As far as I understand it Olley points are simple - 1 point per infantry, 2 points for cavalry (1 for horse, 1 for rider). Not sure about other things like artillery pieces, wagons, and other more exotic items like large monsters or war machines. I count artillery as several points (3 or 4) in my mind because they take me that much longer to prep and paint than an infantryman (and cannons are not my favorite thing to paint - too mechanical and too fiddly at the same time).
Happy New Year!

18th century and Colonial . . . my two favorites as well.
