|Hussars support the assault!|
The standard bearer for this unit will not be used at this point. A good friend suggested to me that I could use this model to represent a captured French flag - or Saxon, or whatever. What a great idea really. Perhaps I will add this model to a command stand or something. That would look perfect.
|Two units worth of Russian grenadiers on the painting desk.|
Next up are the Grenadier units. I am working on two units at the moment - about 100 figures in all. So far they are about 80% done as far as painting. I still have the shako cords and metal bits to paint up, not to mention basing and flocking. Also, I am not sure what these guys will be regarding regiments/division. I want a little variety in my armies , so I don't want everything to come from the same division.
Looking over what I have so far, I should be able to start fighting some battles with these guys very shortly - even right now! However, I am going to wait a little bit. I am afraid if I start playing battles I might slow down the painting. I do in fact need to get at least 300 more figures painted up - Russians!
