New Unit Completed

Regiment Bourbonnois has been completed.

That takes me up to four French infantry regiments.

I'm also grinding slowly away at the Gardes Francaises a couple of figures at a go. For fun I'm going to paint up one of their drummers in the Grand Livery lace. I've also done a minor conversion on the French "NCO" with his hat off available from RSM to turn him into the obligatory "bowing officer of the Gardes Francaises inviting the British to fire first" pose...

Slackness admitted!

I have been slack. It's been ages since I've posted. Mea culpa.

It's Christmas. Real life has been inserting it's boring self and getting in the way of my proper business!

I have finally just finished of Regiment Bourbonnois, and really feel that I have a decent-sized force at last. It's gotten me ready to do Cavalry Reg't Wurttembourg.

My last report has convinced me to go with larger cavalry regiments, so I will be building to 16-18 figure regiments of horse from now on - as well as going back over those I have and beefing them up. Following Wurttembourg, I think I will be adding another Squadron to my Turpin Hussars. This will give me a respectable three regiments of Horse to go with my four of Foot.

I think then it will be time for me to paint some gunners.
