Well the last couple of weeks have seen minor progress, since making the decision to switch from 28mm back to 15mm Napoleonics. I have been able to focus on some loose ends and get them completed.
I had 3 battalions of Napoleonics that were all being worked during the last year whilst building a 28mm French and Allies Force being a wargamer and slightly off my old swede lately, these never got completed so when I cleared out these were not ready to sell. Further after selling my Frenchies off I had a huge stack of Russians to sort out.
I sorted the Russians, repainting and rebasing half of what I had acquired to sell off, I got caught in the excitement of being exposed to that much lead I did what any lunatic would and impulse purchased the whole lot of Infantry that was available. That even with Kevin there to control me when I bought figures, and yes he did suggest half and half with French that were available but my head was not behaving and I had a whole lot of Russians, to me that was all that counted. It was many days later that logic hit me and I realised that I would never be able to field everything I had purchased. Lesson learnt there until the next time.
So any way I have rebased and repainted all the other Russians for my own gaming as well as adding some cavalry and Jagers to balance it all out. More on those in another post.
I have been able to complete the first of three half finished units of 28mm figures as I mentioned earlier. So these are now heading off to Ebay as I dint require the figures, although I will have to replace these with a 15mm version.
I present the Swiss Neuchatel Battalion circa 1812. This has to be the third time I have painted these fellows in recent years but they are just so dandy its hard not too. They can be purchased from Ebay later today for the princley sum of £30.00 including free postage in the UK or reduced postage Worldwide.
Well thats me for now folks, I will be lurking as I have done for a couple of months now while I wait for the gloom to lift fully. Until then stay safe
