|Well it is Christmas so got to have a few little extras!|
Hobby plans for 2019.
I will continue to expand the figures per block C&C project, I'd like to do the Prussians next. I decided to remove the figures from the flocked bases, they just looked to messy to me and I wanted to return to the cleaner single bases with as much flock removed as I could and repainted. I like the individually based figures and the Blue Moons are robust enough - and heavily varnished - so that I can just scoop them up by the handful! I have now decided to keep all line infantry at 8 figures for more visual impact on the C&C board. This weeks output has been 8 British Grenadiers/Guards with a sergeant to mark them as elites, 4 French 4th Hussars and another 4 French voltiguers.
|Job done I'd say! This is just what I envisaged when I started. Still plenty more figures to paint before I start on the Prussians.|
|The 8 figure infantry units give a better sense of mass.|
|French Dragoons on the left flank.|
|British Guards & RHA battery.|
|Highlanders with Light infantry to front interspersed with rifles. The British lights are powerful 5 block units and throw an additional dice when standing and firing. The rifles are 3 blocks and have increased mobility and range.|
|The French infantry with skirmish thrown out in front.|
|French light cavalry about to cross the stream, Hussars, Chasseurs & line lancers.|
