|My first job is to sort out the figures into units|
and bases. These are improvised but efficient
sorting trays created from milk
bottle tops and parcel tape.
I have chosen to do Prussian and Austrian armies, an interest that goes back to the launch of Phil Barker's Horse and Musket Wargaming Rules 1685-1845 (1979). I never played them as it was a project I never got round to, but I remember being inspired by an article in some wargaming magazine referencing the folk song 'The cruel wars in High Germany'.
|Ready for figures to be dropped in. I'll then put the trays|
into A4 boxes with paper or card between the layers.
