The past couple of months have been a wee bit of a challenge, life stuff has jumped up and took a nibble out of our bum. However hopefully things are starting to take a more normal shape now. Good news Mai is doing well and is back to her grumpy self.
In amongst everything I scunnered my free time by painting a large amount of subbuteo spectators for a guy in Italy (totally killed my figure painting and it will be the last time).
Thankfully recently to counter my lack of painting I picked up a Prussian army of 8-9 battalions of Prussians as well as extras from Darren. I decided a while back that I wouldn't be buying any more painted figures because of a few let downs through ebay however the pics Darren sent up of his troops looked great.
And they are brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Darren has done a great job and his painting style is pretty much the same as my own so the figures will slip right in with my own battalions.
Darren also covered units I have not completed myself so all I really need to do is rebase the troops.
All the figures are AB so again fit in well with my plans.
So a whole lot of rebasing and the odd facing colour change and my Prussians will grow to 19-20 battalions. thanks a million to Darren for the figures, they will be well used.
The landwehr are my favourite and I have started to rebase them already.
And Austrians!!! even more brilliant, again they will slip in with my AB Austrians that I still have to paint.
