Having a project on focuses the mind.
Doing this siege game has really highlighted to me just how incomplete some of my units are/were.
Just a few examples, my Bavarian Leib Garde were short by a whole company, as were my Gardes Francaises.
Many of my French (or”Gallispan”) regiments while standardised on a three-company organisation were all short various NCOs.
When I started the project my Prussian (or Alzheimer) Fusiliers stood at less than half company strength – now they are at almost two companies and still going strong.
I had almost NO gunners – now I have eight Alzheimer and nine Gallispan (as well as an Ouvrier!) with more on the way.
I had no fortress artillery but for four unpainted and fiddly to assemble Hinchcliffe 12 pounders. Now I have a neat half-dozen from Eureka.
Hurrah for projects; the siege has boosted my forces by something like 70 figures since the start of December.
