What's the painting forecast for 2007? The forecast looks good! I’ll begin painting the regiment of dragoons in earnest later this weekend. Hopefully that will take about a month. I’ll next begin on the lovely regiment of RSM 95 grenadiers. When those are finished in the late winter/early spring, it’s time to begin work on some primarily whited-coated troops for the Electorate of Zichenau.
The rest of 2007 should see me working on two infantry regiments, a smaller battalion of jäger or frei corp, a regiment of dragoons (or perhaps hussars?), a two-gun battery of artillery, and three general staff members, including the dastardly French mercenary General Phillip de Latté! Hopefully, this is not biting off more than I can chew as far as painting goes.
From time to time, I might continue work on scenery for my Old School wargaming projects – a few styrofoam hills, maybe some river sections, and so on. If all goes well, I might be able to stage a small game over the Christmas holidays next December. Stay tuned right here to see how these grandiose plans take shape.
Of course, if my wife and I find the kind of house we want, there will be a late-summer move, which will throw all of these painting plans into chaos for several weeks! So, we’ll see what unfolds.
Finally, thanks to all of you regular visitors to the Grand Duchy of Stollen blog for your continuing visits and comments on the recent construction boom in the Duchy. As many of you will know, there was more building over the Christmas and New Year's holidays than even Donald Trunp could manage! And the Duchy has had more than 4,200 visits since beginning the blog last August. Pretty good for an imaginary place!
