Painting of the Minot Jager has been some what slower than planned as I have spent some time basing up some of my old 28mm SYW collection ready for the Chiraz campaign. I have decided to play the campaign as standalone games. I not sure about playing the river crossing as I don’t have models of barges and pontoons so will limit the campaign to the other 4 scenarios.
The other piece of news is that the Electoral forces have been given a boost by the imminent raising of a new regiment – the Erbrpinz. I have 61 figures on order from Sweden and hopefully they will arrive in time for my birthday on the 17th March. I intend to paint these as close as possible to how the unit appears in Charge. I blame Phil Olley for this as it was seeing his pictures on his classicwargaming blog that got me hooked into recreating my youth.
As spring approaches I hope to get some more Prince August 40mm figures casted up. I have the moulds and plenty of lead so just need some fine weather and a few hours spare hours.
