Preview: Italians readying for Adowa

It was getting late tonight, but I was still able to squeeze in a few minutes to base two Italian units for Adowa, and some accompanying officers. Here a group pic.

There are a few retouches I need to do before declaring these "battle ready", but overall I am rather satisfied. The miniatures, by the way, are by the excellent, and much under-appreciated, Tin Soldier line, distributed in the U.S. by Silver Eagle Wargame Supplies (highly recommended.)

Here's the commanding officer: a true bersagliere, ca va sans dire...

Got to agree with you about the Tin Soldier minis. I'm painting some up myself.

Do you have any decent sources of maps for the terrain? I can only find one rough drawn map on and I can't seem to tie it in with Google Earth.

Good Luck with the battle when it happens.
