I'm a bit of a project butterfly at the moment as I have the marines and foot dragoons for the sea landing still underway, along with the fortified position. I'll also need to paint another gun and crew, too. I still plan to paint more British and Portuguese battalions for the British 2nd Division, figures for which are sitting forlornly in the unpainted pile. Then, of course, there's my latest project, the Wurttembergers, of which the horse artillery set arrived in the mail last Friday.
What will take priority, though, over the coming weeks, is to ensure that I have enough troops for my promised VI Corps for the Battle of Wagram project that we'll be playing early next year. The Italian Guard units are done and dusted, but I still need to confirm I have enough French infantry to cover my commitments. I know for a fact that I'll have to paint up a few more Chasseur a Cheval figures to cover the light cavalry brigade attached to that corps
|Nicely animated figures, but the detail is not very good|
|Figure biting his cartridge looks deep in thought: 'Hmmm...did I turn the gas off before I left?'|
|The advancing pose holds his musket very close to his body obviously for ease of sculpting, giving an odd, off balance look for a charging figure.|
