The Regiment is finished.







Well, I did not get a chance to finish my 8 figures last week. But I was able to make up the difference this week and finish the last 8 fusiliers completing the 72 figure regiment. It is both satisfying and intimidating to think this is just the tip of the iceberg. I will probably paint different units from here on out. 1 week artillery the next a battalion of Saxons, or what ever. only to keep the interest fresh. I felt good about painting the same thing 56 times minus the grens and light troops. but I am worried about burn out. All together I liked how this unit came together. I read in Chandler that the French relied on Prussian stores for various restocks. That is why I painted some figures in the tan pants. to represent the Prussian campaign pants.
10 week total 72 figures.

it's funny that you said that. I see a lot of similarites between the 2 ranges.

The regiment looks great all together and I really like the detail about the pants restocked from Prussian stores. Excellent work!
