As a quick introduction, I'm an avid war gamer from Finland. I've been playing various miniature and board games for some 15+ years. Nowadays it's mostly historical stuff: Napoleonics (Black Powder), World War 2 (Bolt Action, Flames of War) and US Civil War (Altar of Freedom, Longstreet). A period that I am particularly interested in is the 17th century and especially the Thirty Years War. This is a period I study professionally and for which I am creating a board game. I'll be sure to let you know how that goes.
So that this first post doesn't become an intimidating wall of text (as my rants are wont to do), I'll finish here and post some pictures of my 15mm Napoleonic French. They'll be fielded in the weekend's Black Powder game at our club (www.nopat.fi), which will kick off our 1812 Russian campaign.
