Thursday Update 08 August

I've made good progress since Tuesday's post. As well as finishing the big Arnhem book I was reading, I have been working on the musketeers for two of the remaining four regiments. All the base colours are done and they just need touch-ups and highlights which I should be able to get done tomorrow. This pose is actually much easier to paint neatly than the other one. Things are looking good for me getting them all done in plenty of time for the Kunersdorf game.


  1. I have the 'advancing' pose wherever possible in my 7YW armies, for much the same reason. I hope your shiney new toys have the same success as their historical precedents!

  2. Glad to hear that you are back on schedule, looking good.

  3. Always impressed by your output - so don't beat yourself up about it.

  4. Great looking models Tamsin, and glad to hear your on schedule

  5. Terrific look to your new recruits, Tamsin. Do you have the command figures for this lot?

  6. @ Herkybird - cheers! These are "at ready" pose rather than advancing. I do prefer them as they are easier to paint and the bayonets are less prone to snapping off :)

    @ Michael A - thanks! :)

    @ Marinergrim - cheers! :)

    @ Dave Stone - thanks! :)

    @ Fran - cheers! :)

    @ Jerry - thanks! Yes, you can see four lonely command groups in my previous post, waiting for their men to catch up! :)
