Ok this will be my second take on this post. I had a post all ready to go on Tuesday the 6th, but it disappeared into the ether while under final edit from my Minion. Murphy's law of backups applied. I typically copy the draft post over to my own blog before it goes live, but schedule it to appear 2 days later than my Challenge day. But, oh course this week I figured that I could catch that up in the evening after Ray made it go live.....
|The sergeant pointing is Front Rank figure. His unpinned coat is more WAS than SYW, but he was too nice not to include.|
|The grenadiers and their officer are Front Rank. More contradictory info on the bags for the grenadier caps, which blue in a contemporary image and descriptions of red. I tried both but liked the red better, not that you can see in this shot.|
|From the left flank. I've added unit labels on the back of the bases complete with an image of a flag. Once again the flags are a major attraction of this army.|
|Now you can see the red bags on the Grenadier caps.|
|I really like the Front Rank officer with his hat off. He looks like he'd invite Messrs. les Anglais to tirez le premier.|
Like the UK, Regina had a major dump of snow this week - 35-40cms from Sunday to Tuesday. I took advantage of the heavy snow to ski to work on Tuesday. I only get to do this rarely since it requires a heavy snow fall without the deep freeze. Most importantly I need to get out before people shovel the selves out as I skiing on the streets and sidewalks.
Finally, I thought I would share this rare footage of Ray following a hard days work at the Minion keyboard and totalling up terrain scores.
