La Famille Rosbif Have New Digs!

Chateau de Rosbif
I'll be using one of the turrets as my wargames room!
The Rosbif household is on the move! I've been spending a lot of my weekends over the last month and a bit house-hunting in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. After a lot of angst and heartache, we've finally bought a house after making an offer on one that was due for auction. Luckily the vendors were keen to sell and we came to an agreement before the auction date. While the picture above is a little exaggerated, we feel that it's not too far from the truth. After all, an Englishman's home is his Castle!

I've still been able to keep my hand in with my Neapolitan project in the meantime. This is the 1/1° Reggimento. They've been on the workbench for a while and had the finishing touches applied last weekend.

Appeal to the Blogosphere!

Image from Perry website
The NWA Napoleonics group are organising the figures for our Austerlitz game scheduled for January 2017. With all the figures accumulated from everyone's collections and purchases of what's left over, the Austrians are fairly well covered. However, we are 6 sapper figures short for what is required. Perry Miniatures seem to be the only manufacturer which produces 28mm sappers as part of their plastic and metal ranges, but are not available as individual figures.

Rather than fork out for more complete plastic sets, or metal command figure sets, I thought I would appeal on behalf of the group to see if anyone out there has a few unwanted Austrian sappers they'd be willing to part with. I'm not sure what we would offer in exchange (pay for postage, figure swap and/or figure painting?), but I'm sure as a group we could come to some sort of arrangement.

Please contact me by the Kontactr widget under my Blogger profile if you can help.

Thanks in advance, on behalf of the NWA Napoleonics group.
