187-390 Painting Points for January

The first of my Saxe-Nweilintz Musketeers arrive in there new uniforms, with first of the horses from the Royal Stables.
They have been marching so much the grass has been worn away..... honest !!!!!
These are for me.... to go to the UK Big Battalions game at Grimsby in October.... 25% of my commitment to the cause is completed.
Austrian Lancers...... Lances to follow
Its a different unit...... honest !!

Told you it was..... and you didnt believe me, shame on you !!
In addition to these 290 points painted, I have also finished a 100 point Rebasing Project for my Romans, which have now faught their first battle in 3 years.
Bringing January to 390 Points.
I have also managed to prep a further 22 units for painting next month (24/30 figures each)
Thanks must go to Wanstead Evening College for giving me 3 evenings a week for painting and to my alarm clock for getting me up 3 hours before i start work so i can get an additional 12 hours painting, so 30 to 40 hours per week..... this will slacken off once the college courses finish and the GF wants more 'together time' but then September comes its back to school and back to the brushes.
On a news front, Wargames Factory have announced thier initial release of Ancient figures in hard plastic, but only in America and not much yet, but they are now linked to Ospreys Field of Glory this should expand quickly, just doubt that they will be available for 15£ over here, especially if old ~Glory get them... theyjust change the dollar sign for a Pound sign and pocket the exchange rate.... might import some while I still can.
Cheers Shaun

Shaun,

Your "Big Battalion" troops look very very nice. I really like the particular blue/red/black combination of the infantry . . . it can be difficult to get the right blue and red to balance well . . . and you did.

Very nice looking beginning, sir. I look forward to seeing the continued regiments.

Hi Shaun,
your Saxe-Nweilintz Musketeers look very good. We have been waiting a long time to see them (don't you have them in 10mm as an 'apetizer'?), but it was well worth the patience!

Looking forward for the next 'Tricorns',
cheers,
Jean-Louis
