I have decided to base up those along with the 4 stands of Cavalry next.

So once i have that done it will put me on:

19 bases of infantry
4 bases of Cavalry
8 Guns and Limbers

Then onto some Generals.

Sunday, July 19, 2009


Well the weekend went fast, but I did manage to get a stand of Chassuers done. Next on the table are two stands of Dragoons.

So two stands of Cavalry done, just need basing but going to leave this until I have all of the Cavalry painted (4 stands to go)

Well getting closer to playing a game, just need to get some terrain painted up oh and actually build a table as well.

So all in all progressing along well. Will attempt to get more photos up tomorrow.

Back in Action

Well its been a busy couple of weeks and painting was pushed aside while I caught up. So where am I at now

As before I am now on 19 French Infantry bases, and over the last two nights saw me paint a stand of Cavalry. The 9th Hussars to be precise.

These I must say are an absolute joy to paint, once i worked out the locations for the colours it took me a matter of a couple of hours to work through the first 18 Hussars.

Will look at getting some pics posted on Monday (here's hoping for a sunny day)

Next on the table is some Chassuers from the II Corps. Also been reading some Osprey campaign books. The battle of Dresden is looking interesting.

I need an excuse (well I don't actually) to buy some more 6mm. Less than 3 years to build towards that project.

At the speed that the Cavalry is taking should have the first 6 bases of Cavalry (1 Hussar, 1 Chassuers, 2 Dragoons, 2 Cuirassiers) done by the end of next week.

So where is the project actually at:


II & III Corps Infantry
II Corps Hussars

Still to paint:

II Corps Chassuers
III Corps Portuguese, Hussars and Chassuers
Attached to III Corps - Dragoons
Imperial Guard Corps
IV Corps

Well that's a lot to do in less than 2 months. What can I say I am a sucker for Punishment.

Watch this space, could be a close finish.

And for September have been thinking about the battle of Aspern-Essling. As this is smaller should be able to complete this in time.

Getting there

Well managed to catchup a little this week. Just about finished the 6 stands of Infantry. (about 232 figs)

Just got to paint the Pom Poms, metalics, mount the flags and base them. To finish off the bases will be painting another 24 Skirmishers before applying the sand and grass.

Aiming to have these bases finished by the local Hobby Expo next weekend, and will be pushing to have some Cavalry and Generals done.

As soon as I have the chance will get some more photos up
