Ernestine Sachsen Regiment with Kurmainz Grenadiers. . .


Painting the laser cut Litko bases this aternoon in the same green as my tabletop, Olympic Grassy Meadow, which helps them magically recede into said surface.


Here's the entire regiment from above with the as yet unglued figures in place.


And here is a shot of the line from almost 30mm soldier level.  The regimental line stretches a staggering 22 inches in length when the staff and color bearers are placed in the center!

Basing in progress, but nothing is tacked permanently down quite yet.  From right to left, my versions of: The Kurmainz grenadiers, Sachsen-Weimar, Sachsen-Coburg, and Sachsen-Hildburghausen contingents.  Just about there after a year and half of sporadic painting.  Whew!

P.S.
10:15pm, and I have just finished gluing the figures in place.  Tomorrow evening will see me addressing a few final touch-ups, and then I am calling this particular project done.  It's time to do something else for a while.  At least until I get the itch to paint another 80-figure infantry unit that is.  Those forthcoming Minden/Fife & Drum Hessians look mighty tempting.

Fantastic - these are beautiful, and there's so many of them. I have to go and lie down for a bit.

I can almost hear those grenadiers singing as they march, a translation m7ght be something like: "Its a long way to the tabletop, its a long way to go. Good bye to painting desk, storage box adieu!" etc

Well done so far, one last sprint to the finish line!
