The show goes on [just]
I think its the only thing wargamers can agree on is the lack of time we have to do all things associated with wargaming.
Anyway I managed to paint up my latest addition to my make belive force, in the personality of this lady who will command the Ducal lancers [ job sharing and condensed hours permitting]
I would like to think that in the mid eighteenth century such considerations were de regeurre.
I also managed to finish my Hanoverian combined grenadiers,who were actually a pleasure to paint,albeit slowly. Steve Hezzlewood did a good job of designing this figure,they do look the part.
I was slightly sidetracked again by buying the latest Minden Austrian and Prussian command groups,which are really beautiful sculpts in their own right.
I am looking forward to painting them,but perhaps not as Prussians.
They may not be as cheap as RSM figures,but they do have their own charm.
Anyway the next unit is the Hanoverian horse guards,which will complement the Horse grenadiers.
Tonight I am around John's for a game,where no doubt I will be given a bit of a thrashing.
