Wild Geese Wargames & Future Plans

I thought I had better just let you know that I am still here😀

Wild Geese Wargames Weekend (22-23rd June)

When I last wrote I was frantically casting and painting the new dragoons for a gaming weekend over the weekend 22-23 June - I managed to get just the two units finished.

The weekend went pretty well, and the 40mm semi flats were generally well received. Unfortunately I somehow managed to pretty much forget to take photos, and those which I did were out of focus! Below are a few I have lifted from other blogs.




We played 3 games over the weekend using the 'Gentleman's War' rules which worked well with these figures. For those of you with the rules - we used 2 packs of cards, one for each half of the table - this speeded up play nicely.

Clearly we were playing a game - not putting on a display, so there is all sorts of mess on the table, however the plain cloth did show the figures off nicely.






Since then I have not touched the 40mm figures, and have mainly been playing Commands and Colors Napoleonic using 15mm figures.



This is not the place to discuss these small chaps - if you are interested here is a link to a write up of our last game.

Future Releases

I am told that PA are planning to release some new moulds in the (near) future. I have asked that the next releases are some Austrian grenz (Russian pandours) and a general officer.

For the light troops I pointed Chris to the posts back in September 2014 (no rushed job this) - I will keep you informed.

  1. Gergeous figures! These are the only ones out there that could possibly pry me loose from 30mm (1/56) Minden/Fife&Drum and Crann Tara. PA are very different, of course, but completely charming.

    Best Regards,

    1. Thanks - I agree they have a certain charm - and all the time and effort invested in home casting has more personal input.

    1. Thanks

      The card holders I used were from Ebay - but unfortunately they are no longer there.

      However if you search for 'Wooden Playing Card Holders' there are some other decent looking options.
