Well, the title of this post says it all really. A dinner party here that ran really late – complete with obnoxious and uninvited child in tow -- prevented any painting last night. Have a few things to take care of today, but hopefully I can get in a couple of hours to paint this afternoon or evening.
Anyway, here are a couple of photos to update you regular visitors to the Grand Duchy of Stollen on my progress with the Zichenauer infantry regiment – “The Newts”, commanded by one Colonel Augustus von Finknottle. The first shot shows where I am with the third company (in the midst of purple facings and turnbacks). The second shot shows the entire regiment.
Kidding aside, it will be fun painting the final 19 figures because it’s something akin to zooming down the far side of a monster hill on your bicycle. Or at least that’s how I’m viewing it. One of you mentioned something about the “tipping point” of painting here a week or so ago, and so we’ve almost reached it with the first Zichenauer infantry regiment. The regiment of Spencer Smith cavalry awaits!
