1. I only count figures I personally have painted from scratch. Stuff done for me does not count.
2. I don’t need to have based them up.
3. Basing is a separate category as I tend to have periodical phases of basing frenzy. All figures count.
4. Terrain items are included.
1670’s-1680’s ‘Turkenkreig’ - 27 cavalry, 196 infantry (Savoyards, Venetians, Saxons, Celle, Papal, Brandenburg and Bavarian)
Vendée - 4 Royalist infantry
French Revolution - 12 Austrian artillerymen which were also fully based up.
4 Hovels Dutch-style buildings
No basing frenzy in January (December’s base-fest burnt me out) but this month I must get all the Turkenkreig units based and tabletop ready. I’ve unearthed four or five more units (one foot, one dragoon, which actually count as two u it’s as I need to do them mounted and on foot, and three of horse) to paint up as Savoyards, Venetians or Imperial troops (maybe a unit of Bavarian infantry as I have the flags for some reason). All manner of German stets sent troops to help Venice and the Austrians fight the dreaded Turk so plenty of variety for sure.
I also want to make up some FRW Hanoverian flags so I can swap them out temporarily with my English FRW units which will then ‘do’ as Hanoverians for a few games I have in mind e.g. Hondschoote, Famars. I seem to have subconsciously started gaming the major battles of the War of the 1st Coalition in sequence and by theatre of operations. That sounds like a good plan to have for 2019, although there are surprisingly few battles in 1793 that are game able i.e. they’re too small or geographically too dispersed, or too one sided to make it much fun for the underdog. However, next weekend I might turn the clock back to 1792 and do a refight of Valmy, not as it panned out in reality but as a ‘what if?’ the Prussians had pressed home their attack.
Now f it’s not snowing in the morning I can get cracking on undercoating a couple of units.
