Many thanks to our benefactor who took the time to put this together! Measuring these little buggers is a bear, so there may be some variability in the measurements presented. If you note anything egregious let me know and I will correct.
Lest you think I have been idle and relying solely on the work of other, below are some works in progress
|Pictured in the foreground is a regiment of Dragoons with a cavalry brigade commander and aide de camp, as well as the 2nd battalion of the 6th Portuguese infantry. The 1st Battalion is on my painting desk.|
|Waiting in the wings for prep work is a regiment of Bavarian Chevau-Leger to accompany the 11th Von Kinkel Infantry Regiment recently completed and featured in my last post.|
|The aforementioned 1st battalion of the 6th Portuguese infantry getting ready to have their battle scars touched up, a little shading and highlighting, and then a good protective coat of Windsor and Newton Oil Varnish.|
|36 figures of the Dutch 3rd Grenadiers coming along, but on hold until the weather warms a bit. Really excited to see how these turn out!|
Here's why there hasn't been more progress on the painting front - It's really cold!
|Bozie and Darla enjoying the snow. With so little traffic they got to spend the walk off leash!|
|This year I decorated one of our small dogwoods with red Christmas lights and my dear one like it so much she asked to leave it up until after Valentines day. It was beautiful to see reflecting on the falling snow this week.|
