More paper soldiers

 ...and a new scale!

Well, having managed to avoid Covid for the last 2 years we've all managed to catch it when  it isn't trendy anymore!  My son was working alongside a colleague who happened to mention her husband had Covid!  Sure enough he caught it a few days later and my wife and I then went down with it a couple of days after that.  So far it's been like a very nasty cold/flu... the worst thing is that we all have it at the same time so there isn't anyone feeling slightly better who can look after the others.

 It doesn't leave much energy for painting or gaming (and I certainly can't go along to my regular gaming friends at the moment!) but I've been indulging in some therapeutic cutting and sticking.

I was looking at the Paperboys website and came across their 10mm range.  I was intrigued by these and printed off one of the free sample ACW sheets.

I've posted before about the paper soldiers and have played a few games with my Jacobites.

I've also posted about the 54mm toy soldier version.  

With hindsight I think the 54mm figures work less well and I haven't pursued these beyond making up a few figures.  The 28mm Jacobites work well though but I think 10mm definitely looks much more impressive

So I've splashed out the princely sum of £12 on the Romans and Gauls pack which includes just about every figure I should need as well as  Roman marching camp and a Gaul camp.

First impressions are good and the small scale should give a great mass effect.  The new Strength and Honour rules are aimed at this level and look very tempting.  It's even got me thinking about their ACW range...
