Thanks :) So far the Project is on target, that is, everything finished by the end of march, so the Terrain will be a bit "quick and easy"

Looking good Paul, always thought "Bushwackers", was a Aussie slang word, ie a group of outlaws, and "Bushranger", was singular.

Thanks Mike :)
I´ve just done a (admittedly quick) search of the web and found a couple of references to Bushwacker, the ACW reference, a Cocktail and a film made in Australia (A 1925 silent film called the Bushwackers https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bushwhackers_(film)) but nothing about it being Australian slang for Outlaws..although I´m also pretty sure (or at least I thought so as well) it is an Australian term :think: If it isn´t, it Definately sounds as though it should be.

If it is, I'm sure we don't mind lending it out to those in need.

It did take me back to my childhood when I started Wargaming with Airfix figures and Terry Wise's rules- still have the ACW armies but have not used them in years.

The battlefield pics just make me want to put some armies in there! On another topic, Paul, earlier is this thread you mentioned you were seeing someone to discuss casting copies of a master you had made (marching figure) - just wondering if anything came of that?

Still haven´t met up with him. I was hoping it would have been two weeks ago but he didn´t Show. Now I´ll have to wait until November :( Still, The Initial target has been met with exoisting figs and I´ve Held back some unpainted examples of the marching poses.

Edit. I might have a go at making some molds and casts myself..I mean, how hard could it be? :geek:
