Back in October I was very lucky (again) to win another Blog Giveaway. I've never won anything in my life.......honest?
Ian over at "The Blog with No Name", held a competition and the first prize was a £20 voucher to spend on the lovely Baccus website.
Now here's where a difficult decision had to be made, what to spend the dosh on, I did have a 6mm Great Northern War list all worked out, the trouble was it cost an extra £30 on top of the 20 quid voucher!, so after slapping myself around the face several times I looked again, the WotR figures looked nice as well, this prompted another slap around the moosh.
In the end I used my head.....well kind of??
You may be aware I've got a Nine Years War thang going on at the moment, well I have for 4 years now?? I've got enough troops now for both sides, but its nice to expand isn't it??
So I had the choice of Dutch ( I already have some Dutch units) or Spanish?
Now the Spaniards did infact have quite a sizeable army in Flanders during the war and fought in many battles (this is what I was telling myself, as I was trawling the website)
So the decision was made, and a few days later my CD arrived in the post, its full of uniform info and flags, so its right up my street, but the question is...............which unit do I paint up first???
Thanks to Ian and Peter at Baccus
