No photo quite yet, but the second batch of Anspach-Beyreuth Kuirassiere is just about finished. One more tiny thing to paint, then it's onto touching up a few black areas, followed by my usual two coats of Future/Klear acrylic floor finish. Despite the "excitement" of the last month or so, I've still managed to make painting progress little by little and bit by bit. A pretty good thing given how much less free time there is than just a few short weeks ago. ;-) Young Paul is actually napping at this moment in his sleeping sack on my lap. No apparent interest in wargaming, playing the guitar, or cross country skiing quite yet, but he is trying to hold his head up and look around whenever he is awake.
So, only nine cuirassier figures left to paint, and with the university semester ending on Friday, I'll have a bit more spare time to do that. Epecially during the nights since I am taking over for the Grand Duchess once a modicum of sleep and the need to appear cognizent in front of my students are no longer necessary. And when Paul decides to sleep, guess who's going to roll his desk chair over to the painting table? If all goes well, I expect to have the entire regiment finished well before Christmas.
And then it's onto that regiment of Holger Eriksson cavalry purchased last summer. Or perhaps another unit of RSM infantry but in tricorns this time. Or maybe a two-gun battery and crew? Or possibly several additional mounted generals and their ADCs? Of course, I could just have a lie-down now and peruse issue #20 of Battlegames, which arrived in the mail earlier this afternoon. Don't you just hate having to make up your mind like that?
