As my maternal grandfather used to say over his glass of scotch and water, "Happy Day After!" I hope you and yours had a delightful Christmas Day and are now enjoying the quiet of the immediate post-Christmas lull.
Things have been relatively quiet here at Stollen Central today. The Grand Duchess has been off visiting some distant family in Champaign this afternoon, leaving me free for some painting. With the few hours available, I have been able to just about finish the first company of Flickenhoffer's Fusiliers -- the final infantry regiment making up the Army of Zichenau.
The figures still need their moustaches highlighted brown, the colors of the flag must be gone over with paints to make it rigid and ensure that the computer ink colors do not fade with time, which will also cover up the white paper at the edge of the edges. Finally, the requisite two coats of Future/Klear must be applied, and then the first company of the regiment as well as the regimental staff of four (Colonel Antonius von Flickenhoffer, his adjutant, the RSM, as well as the regimetal satndard bearer) is all finished. Then we only have 57 more figures of the regiment to go in three companies of nineteen figures each.
Anyway, the photo above shows where we are at the moment with the regiment. Now, I must, must, must get into the next room and get back to Move Eight of the Action at Pickelhaubewicz, which has been languaishing for over two weeks, so I can send some results to my partner in crime, Jonathan Broadus, allowing us to progress to the end of the turn and onto Move Nine.
