Well I'm down to my two last units to paint , Prussian Dragoons and French Chasseurs D Africa . When these are painted I will have completed my Old School Franco-Prussian War project - as I originally envisioned it about 18 months ago . Must admit it is not usual for me to plan out a collection as precisely as this - normally my projects are very open ended with no target in sight , so I'm rather pleased with myself that I have been able to keep this one on course . However there are slight feelings of regret that I am coming to the finishing line with these figures and maybe in the future I will be adding the odd unit to them (French Guard in Bearskins ?) , These 2 units are now in the queue for my painting table and I will report my progress - watch this space ....
You are a man of iron will, Sir. And those are two very nice armies.ReplyDelete
However, I understand that there are some additions to the range planned for this year that will test your resolve to the limit.
In any case, I have enjoyed following your progress with these figures. Thank you for writing it up.
Oh dear ! an extension to the range - I was half dreading this temptation - you don't happen to know what additions might be ?Delete
I rather like an open door policy myself. Perhaps once a few games have been played you'll see some room for reinforcements.ReplyDelete
I'm sure I willDelete
Well done, clearly there are advantages to being retired.ReplyDelete
Steel yourself and paint some extra units, you know you want to! I have enjoyed following your progress on this project very much.ReplyDelete
