Slow but steady progress is being made as, hopefully these photographs will show. Most bases are finished with tufts in place. I may add a few more tufts in due course, maybe some static grass too.
Some late hard landscaping in my garden and also preparation for an upcoming show has added a lot of clutter to my recently cleared table top. Never mind, it will soon be too cold and windy and wet outside to get much more done this year so some of the clutter will disappear shortly.
This is the current scene.
An understrength French army ready to go.
A Grand Battery
More Light Infantry
The Commander, anyone recognise him?
More Line Infantry
Facing them, the Anglo-Portuguese.
A couple of Foot Artillery batteries.
Regular Light Infantry
Some more Foot Artillery
Light Dragoons on the Left Flank
A 'thin red line' awaits events
Light Dragoons on the Right Flank
The Commander 'noses' about
Portuguese Light Infantry - Cacadores - recently raised
Portuguese Line Infantry - fresh off their painting sticks
Five units, 3 British, 2 French waiting on their bases drying. I use Windsor & Newton inks to shade my bases. I like to let them dry for a couple of days as a varnish will lift any ink that is not completely dry.
More Portuguese Line Infantry - just about ready
French reinforcements - coming soon - 2 Wurzburg and 1 Grenadier
So, there you are, as up-to-date as I can make it.
I have a show up North this weekend and another show in Belgium the following weekend, maybe I'll get a game in thereafter.
