I have filled up one A4 File Box and had to crack open another so thought it was a good time to get a few pictures of the whole lot together.
I have to say I thought it would look somewhat more imposing. This is about a third of the infantry, half the cavalry and a lot less command and guns required for the Waterloo re-fight. It is true though that they will take up far more space on the battlefield which is rather handy given the size of the table.
So I have 24 battalions of infantry painted so far with exactly half of these being Baccus. I am not sure exactly how many more battalions I have in my Prussian to paint box but it's still fairly full! Cavalry wise I have far more than will be used for Waterloo but then again I was never just building for that one battle so you will see plenty more of the cavalry as this goes on.
I already have made a start on this months levy, these should be finished either next week or the week after dependant on what takes my whim. I am further forward with the French which I will finish first.
I don't have a problem mixing the Baccus with the Adler at all, OK not all on the same base (except I probably add Landwehr skirmishers from Baccus onto the Adler Landwehr as Adler do not do them!)
It's the first time the guns have made in onto my blog for some reason. These are Adler howitzers, I am not 100% happy with the width of the carriage, they may be correct but they look really wide to me. I have quite a lot more of the Adler guns and crews which is a good thing given the number I will need for Waterloo, even if they don't get to be used as will be the case of many of them.
Here we have the 9ld guns all ready to knock holes in the French. I already have LOTS of French cannon's in part thanks to my Secret Santa from last year. Again it's a good job given the numbers we will be seeing in our game.
So not a bad start and you won't see another group shot till the second box is full or I finish a Corp. I am hoping that once I have enough cavalry finished these will get a game or three whilst we wait for the big game comes round. Before that you will get to see Lee's Russians who must be quaking in their boots waiting to face my French.
