Another interesting new blog. .

Yes, I'm just t-h-i-s close to ordering 30 Hungarian Pandours and staff from the Dayton Painting Consortium! Rich sent me a sample figure just before Christmas, and they are so lovely that I'm not sure I can wait another year until the rest of the pile of lead here in Zum Stollenkeller has been painted. Well, I can rationalize to myself that a batallion of Pandours will provide a nice break after a large unit of infantry and another large unit of cavalry. It is a slippery slope indeed!

Just a quick note before I move over to the painting table to begin the final steps on those last nine RSM Austrian cuirassiers. Phil Olley has just started yet another blog -- Classic Wargaming by Phil Olley (see link at right). Only one post by Phil so for, but this one I'm sure promises to be as interesting and inspiring as both the Blasthof Blog, with which Phil is involved, and his mothballed War Cabinet website. I'm sure I echo many of you when I say that I can't wait to see this blog develop over time. So, be sure to check out: Classic Wargaming by Phil Olley!

How will you manage to keep your army supplied in the field without some good troops to scour the countryside for provender?

I think that Irwin-Amadeus II needs some good light infantry . . . something like, say, Pandours.

A bag of them wouldn't be all that expensive . . . go ahead, you know you want to.

Pandours are fun to paint, too! A nice change of pace from tricornes... ;)

You might want to check out the Minden Pandours before you place your order. More actionable poses and slightly smaller, more in keeping with your plastic figures' size. Both ranges are nice, but the Mindens will blow you away with their excellence.

Stokes - get the Pandours - whatever your painting means more units for the tabletop!

Happy new year by the way...
