Of course my French don't really.need any more horse artillery but at least they now have them in several different modes.of dress and headgear. I think I've settled.on three gun models per company for horse artillery and four for foot artillery, but I guess it depends upon the scenario.
Back to the painting desk now to carry on chipping away at the lead mountain and the drawer of doom. But as they say, one can eat an elephant but do it in small bites, unless there's been a run of elephants in the shops and there are none left!

It's been a madhouse by t also a very productive week. Even if I am locked up for 12 weeks I somehow doubt I'll run out of figures!

I unexpectedly finished these off this evening. I say unexpectedly as I didn’t think I had any spare suitable cannon, but a delve I to the box of doom produced these three, already painted red. It’s another company of Hanoverian artillery to join my FRW forces. The castings are actually Eureka FRW Russians but they are a close match and look the part. I just trimmed the long pigtails and the rest is paint. They will be joining their comrades in arms in my FRW campaign and may well be in action very soon where they will hopefully acquit themselves better than “new unit syndrome” might otherwise dictate. I’m making steady progress through the stuff on the painting table. When that’s all done (Ha!) I can dig deep and get going on something else. But what......?
