More 1/72 French
I took a little time to finally finish these guys, who've been staring accusingly at me from the WiP shelf for a while now. This is the third base of four projected for my first 1/72 French unit.
This is very much a back-burner project for me, as my glacial progress suggests. I've sort of envisioned this as a flexibly-based set of units that could conceivably work for a number of rule sets, but in the back of my mind are Lasalle and Black Powder.
Playing in this scale requires big tables, however, and lots of space, i.e., it's not something that's going to happen any time soon. I sort of picture it as my one day / big boy army. By the time I'm in a position to use it, I'll probably have enough to use.
In the mean time, it's a different scale of project from pretty much anything else I'm working on, and despite my occasional maundering, I do enjoy pulling these out and puttering from time to time. Next up is probably a little Bolt Action and Impetus painting. No game next week, as it's Halloween, and I'm eviscerating pumpkins with the family, but hopefully I'll be able to churn out something postable for the occasion.
