Introducing IR35

The Fusilieers are coming along nicely enough. I'd say they are about two-thirds complete, with the remaining rank and file of the third of four companies due for completion tonight.

I will then get cracking on their command. I took Jim Purky's advice and bought Stadden command to go with the RSM rank-and-file, and they are a very good match being as they are of a somewhat smaller stature than the rest of the Stadden Prussians.

I'll do a comparison photo tonight to demonstrate.
UPDATE: I finished of the third company tonight - that's them in the second picture from the top of the page. I've also included a picture of the Stadden Fusilier NCO for a point of comparison with the RSM fusilier with the cheeky look on his face. Note also the part-painted Officer and fusilier drummer ithe the completed company.

I've got to get my eyes checked: I misread your headline as "Ignoring IR35". Well, why do a post about them then? Oh, "Introducing". Never mind.

I'm admiring the sunshine in the picture as much as the figures. The temperature in Chicago was -2F for the high today. We've had nothing but snow for the past two weeks.

27C at 5 in the afternoon.

Daylight saving means we get useful daylight until after 7:30 PM.

Good Morning Greg,

Another lovely unit of toy soldiers you have amassed there! It's also neat to see how well the RSM and Stadden/Tradition figures work together. I've got a bunch of RSM Prussian fusiliers myself (about 80) to work on this summer.

Best Regards,

That's over 80' Fahrenheit in case you didn't know.

Greg, Jim's high was about -19' Celsius, in case you didn't know.

Quite a temperature difference, eh?

Enough already... what's happening at the siege?? :o)))

Bloggerator said...

I could handle a high of 19.

Steve, I just played out a seige move. I'll post shortly.

Thanks Stokes,

I think they are a "playable" unit now. At three companies they won't wither away too fast in a fire-fight!

Four companies will be better, of course.
