Just Look at That!

Ok, this shot is not the best, but it does give some idea of just how long the brigade line stretches. . . off into the distance. Imagine how neat it will be once I have painted a comparable number of troops for the Electorate of Zichenau, and there are two brigades opposing each other on the table. Hmmmm. . . I wish I could paint faster and life would stop getting in the way!

Looking good, Stokes!

It really makes me wish I would have collected more boxes of the Revell SYW stuff. The only sets I'm missing are the Prussian Hussars and the Austrian artillery, but as it is, I only have one each of the other sets, so there's not a whole lot I can do with those except a possible skirmish game of some sort. Oh well...too soon old, too late smart!

Stokes - what a fine paint job. The whole army looks very cleanly done indeed. Marvellous!

So, how many boxes of Prussians did you need to loot to put together the one unit?

Very Nice! Very Nice Indeed!

Lovely little fellows, I do like the colors on the Jaeger Zu Fuss! Quite impressive all lined up also.

Thank you for your compliments Patrick and Greg! To answer your question: 12 boxes of Prussians provided the 60+ marching musketeers that make up the 2nd (Von Laurenz) Musketeers. The boxes also will provide me with almost enough figures to do everything else for Stollen's army in addition to plenty of extra figures for conversions (lopping off the heads to use on tjhose Zvezda Napoleonic Saxon cuirassiers, etc.)

Best Regards,

The figs always look better 'on parade, en masse' than they do 'in progress'.

Your sense of achievement will only be surpassed by the feelings you will get after their first tabletop VICTORY!

great work Stokes.

Those plastic figures have a really cool OSW feel to them.
