Earlier this year I published a post on some Grand Alliance infantry I had just painted. Well, after many false starts and being sidetracked by various projects, I have eventually got around to painting two more units.
The previous unit used plastic figures, but these are mainly Essex, with officers and pikemen from other manufacturers. Using the Pike and Shot Society book on the Austrian army as my main source I decided to paint the figures as the Herbestein and Metternich infantry regiments.
Only one more battalion to go and that will complete the brigade. Perhaps completion by Christmas?
I have been wargaming on and off for the best part of forty years. Starting, as many of my generation did, with the range of airfix plastic figures. My first and abiding interest has been the Napoleonic period, which at first meant that figure conversion was the only option; and very messy it was too. In later years my interests have expanded to include periods from the 12th to 19th centuries, with a particular interest in eastern Europe. I do not belong to a club, but I have a regular opponent and we try and meet each week.
