This year I'm participating the "Secret Santa" venture (the headless horseman and "Sleepy Hollow")

Wow I am painting a Secret Santa item and just kind of went off the cuff now that I see folks posting for it on with Wish lists! Not sure what to ask for and if its too late?




I am always into 28mm Napoleonic's and 28mm AWI or they might say across the pond the American War of Rebellion?
Another prize would be painted or unpainted the Headless horse man for the American Revolution as told by Ichabod Crane of the new TV series Sleepy Hollow - This would be a wonderful addition to my British Hessians as a "special" mounted general.

A nice Mounted Hessian general would be nice for both as I can use him for both will have to wait and see.  Merry Xmas as I try to finish off my guess for the Secret Santa Club.

Merry Xmas - I did find Uncle Fritz inspirational for my own unit of Black uniformed troops
