Firstly, a very Happy New Year... may your 2014 be prosperous.
Over the past few weeks, brushes have been wielded, notably by Mark Allen, and James Brewerton, to the extent that I now have a basing backlog!! (I know, I'm a slacker).
James has done a lovely job on the first of the French infantry regiments, and they are next in the basing queue. Photos will be coming once they are complete.
Meanwhile, Mark completed the Kronprinz Grenadiers, to accompany their sister battalion featured last time, the Pils Holstein Leibgarde.
Here is the embryonic Pils-Holstein army in full array, on recent manoeuvres.
Shown here are The Kronenbrau Kuirassiers, Holstein Hussars, Transvladak Uhlanen, Leibgarde Regt, Kronprinz Grenadiers, and Kurtz Jagers, along with 2 light guns.
A variety of commanders are in attendance.
And here's the Infantry Brigade, with their commander, Brigadier Maximillian von Bruch (painted by yours truly a few weeks ago).
This force will face a similar sized French array in a small action over the coming weeks, and I'll post a report here.
Meanwhile, best wishes for the year to come, and I do hope you will continue to visit and enjoy the blog. This year, as the armies grow and develop, things will start to get interesting. I promise...
