So much for not holding up the game when I discovered I had missed creating an entire unit (see earlier post). When I came to set up the battlefield I found I was short by three slope hexagons, so an emergency order to Kallistra was prepared. At the same time I ordered some new houses from Total Battle Miniatures to replace the Irregular Miniatures buildings I intended to use, which look a bit small against the new troops. If they don’t arrive before the new hexagon tiles I will press into use some nicely painted American Civil War models I bought at a tabletop sale last year. They are a reasonable substitute, judging by newsreel film of September 1939 recently viewed.

So now it’s a race. Will the new hexagon tiles arrive before the buildings? And in the meantime I can start painting the missing unit.
