In between those recent Prussians I have a lot of Napoleonics in my own collection that require a paintjob, so I’ve tried to give them some love as well. I’m struggling to get my first Division (Jérôme’s) ready for the new year – still need a single line battalion and the divisional and brigade commander models done. That’s probably too lofty a goal, but anyway, here’s the new stuff:
As I probably mentioned before, I’ve tried to condense the Quatre-Bras OOB into a manageable collection by halving the amount of battalions and artillery pieces in a logical way. As such, I’ve reduced the divisional artillery from six 6-pounders and two howitzers to three and one respectively. Same ratio, thicker wallet!
I’ll add the artillery to my brigades with two pieces representing a single gun, which fills out the total size of four units per brigade quite nicely.
While rifling through Dave Thomas’ stand at Crisis ’14 I came upon this little chap in the bargain bin. Perfect for that little bit of extra detail for my artillery park sans having to shell out for limbers! I’ve putd the contents of the blister on a few different bases for utility.
Having reached a decent sized artillery park, I couldn’t resist a group shot. Sorry for the quality though.
Anyway, that wraps it up for this contribution. I’ve been to Crisis and bought a boatload of models, but I’ll hold off commenting on that until the end of the year when I’ll do a 2014 wrap-up/2015 prospect type of post. A la prochaine!
