More Minden Hussars. . .
A slow week painting-wise, but I've made good progress on the final nine figures in that ongoing 30-figure regiment since Friday evening. Sill lots to do, but the back of the project is broken, and my motivation is reasonably high to get these darn things finished and move on to the final infantry unit in Phase One of the Grand Duchy of Stollen Project.
Anyway, grandiose language aside, you can see where I am with the little darlings as of Sunday afternoon here in the American Midwest. If the mood strikes me this evening after supper and Young Master Paul's bedtime, I might do the white markings on the horses' legs and muzzles plus the leather girths and maybe, just maybe, the stirrup leathers. Of course, I'm deviating a bit from my usual painting routine, but it sometimes helps to do this when the tedium demon strikes and does his worst to derail the painting of a large unit.
