That's not bad going really, to get all of these painted up in about 5 weeks, especially as that period also saw me painting up a few other things and included the Christmas break when I was away for a few days.
As I have already said, this is just the start of the army and I will be adding to it over the course of this year (after the Challenge has finished). But what will I be adding?
* 2 more regiments of cuirassiers
* 2 more regiments of horse grenadiers
* x more regiments of hussars
* some cossacks
* more commanders
* more artillery
*2 more grenadier regiments (arrggghhhh! Mitres! Complicated standards! The horror, the horror...)
* 4-6 more musketeer regiments
I won't be posting any WIP pics today and tomorrow's post will probably be the cops (if Curt has posted them a suitable time before tomorrow evening).
This afternoon and evening I will be working on the 6mm ACW test batch. I suspect that the next 4 units will also be test batches to find the best uniform colours.
