This week I received more Old Glory Figures for my Sharp Practice FIW project. I got 2 cannon teams for both armies, 1 bag of command for both armies, as well as a bag of limbers and a bag of coehorn mortars. I was quite surprised with the quality. Most of the command figures and gun crews were very much above what I have come to expect from non-2nd edition OG figures. I though the line infantry were on the good side for OG! One looker-on at the club thought some of the command were Front Rank for a moment.
Anyway. I got these on Tuesday. Since then I have painted 3 commanders(or big Men, as sharp Practice calls them) for each side, a standard bearer, a Drummer and 1 gun team each. and to top it off, I painted My Indian village on Wednesday and made 8 more blinds on Thursday.. A pretty good week all in all.
So tonight, while I was at MIGS(gaming club in Hamilton Ontario) I took the opportunity to take a few pics of my collection.

My french Army Consists of 3 units of line & 1 unit of grenadiers(all of the Languedoc Infanterie), 2 unit of Companies Franches de la Marine, & 1 cannon & crew. I also have 20 Indians to accompany them. I have 6 French big men and 2 Indian big men to lead them.

In Sharp Practice, you usually start with 'Blinds' on the table instead of units. it is a simple and great way to generation the fog of war. here's a picture of the blinds i have for my British army. I have another 10 for the french as well.
I have another cannon team for each army, a pair of coehorn mortars, and another unit of light infantry for the British. I plan on buying 5 packs of Conquest Indians and 3 packs of Companies franches de la marine for my French/Indians, and 2 more groups of 8 Virginia militia plus some militia command.
Eventually I'm looking at doubling my line infantry contingent for both armies, and adding some Courier de bois.Canadian militia as well.
