Nothing finished to show yet I'm sorry to say, a brief health hiatus has hampered progress over the last couple of days although I did manage a draw in a recent WWI game at Phil's. I'm not up to painting anything at present, though I did manage to varnish and base the ones I finished on Monday and get it textured. That's two bases of the second Roosian Jaegers battalion done now. The last nine are fixed to MDF hexes ready for their turn under the brush. All being well 🤞 I hope they will be completed by the end of the weekend.
I thought I'd take stock of what is remaining now for the Crimean War project. I have a third Roosian Jaeger battalion cleaned up and spray undercoated and a further battalion still ensconced in the depths of the Lead Pimple along with a battalion of British infantry in a mix of coatees and greatcoats. I had intended the latter for the 71st Highland Light Infantry but stupidly ordered the wrong flags from North Star!👴🏻 Old Age strikes again it seems!
Sitting all ready for their turn in the painting queue, and glaring almost malevolently at me it seems, are three British infantry battalions, a battery of British 9lb guns, a battery of 12lb Roosian guns, two Roosian command stands each of two mounted figures, six Great War Miniatures Roosian Dragoons, several bases of skirmishers for the British and the Historicon freebie 'Into the Valley of Death' gifted me by Matt Crump. As you can see, not all of these can be fitted into the 'nearly their turn' queue atop my paint drawers! It almost as if any project seems grow almost on its own I think... It looks to me that any chance of finishing all these before summer is pretty remote. Oh well...
Next game on the table in GHQ should be an ACW tussle with Phil, if he's dug himself out of the snow by then that is.
