When I finished the unit of Levy (see previous post) the only remaining unit for the Punic Wars project, the Allied Italians for the Carthaginian army, were not cleaned up and spray undercoated. In fact the only figures ready to paint were these Foundry War of 1812-15 oddments: an American general and four figures in summer kit - 2 officers, a sergeant and a junior NCO. I've opted for a two figure base to add to the skirmisher elements and another command base, after all you can never have too many generals, can you...?
I've now cleaned up the Italians ready to get them spray undercoated and onto the painting desk! The 20 figures will take me over a week I expect, I've noticeably slowed down with regard to painting of late. I've also been reorganizing the RUBs which hold the Lead Pimple. There are three Dixon Miniatures ACW 20 figure infantry units, one 20 figure Crusader Miniatures ACW unit, a 24 figure Eureka French infantry unit for the FRW, and 6 Trent Miniatures Scots Grey's STILL awaiting command figures after years of harassing Duncan to get them done! I've ordered a couple of books too from Caliver, one with a view to a new period/location but utilizing numbers of existing units from three other periods we play here in GHQ. More as and when on that...but in the meantime here's a clue.
