Some Allied Cavalry

                                         15th Hussar squadron completed -at last!

                                         Brunswick hussars well underway - 4 men needed

A long gap since the last post, and have managed to make some progress, as shown in the pictures above. The game will probably take place about two weeks from now, however the hot weather has disrupted my plans insofar as some hoped for units will either not be present, or be understrength. Having said that, there should be around 1300 figures available.

I can only paint in 15 minute slots at present due to the temperature 32 c, and the two angle poise lamps adding to the heat, last week the paint was literally drying on the brushes as I worked. Apparently the weather is due to cool down by the end of the week, so I should be able to catch up a bit.

As ever, comments criticism and encouragement welcome.




  1. Stunning work Eric, I don't know how you find the time or the patience!

  2. Hi Eric - good to hear the update and great work as usual. Are you having the game in the garden or are you hiring somewhere? Guess you'll need a massive table with all of those figures!

  3. Thanks both. Brian, I wish I could paint them faster, ho hum. Bill, we will be in our back garden using what because of the weather, used to be our lawn.

  4. Presumably wearing cream linen suits and straw boaters!😉

  5. Nothing else would be appropriate!

  6. Beautiful figures beautifully painted. May they roll well in battle despite their beautiful appearance!

    ps I agree about the damned heat! If I'd wanted to live in the tropics I'd have moved!

  7. Beautiful figures as always...

  8. Ross, thank you, yes the heatwave seems to span the globe.
    Mike, thank you too!
