My flu is finally on the way out and I am getting back in the painting swing, but it is another small post from me this week. I've got the last 8 infantrymen from the Touraine Regiment to make up the full 24 man battalion. So far production has been incremental, I think Benito's on the same track, but it's worked. I set my bar low and use the paining as a sanity break from a very busy semester.
These figures are all Crusader, although there are a few Front Rank figures in the full battalion.
FYI I chose the Regiments that I am painting based on the Rene North book that I used as my inspiration for my SYW project - see my Childhood round post. This picture from the book features members of both the Touraine and Diesbach regiments - which I targeted as my main goals to have completed by the Spring Equinox.
|I've painted mine to match other sources, so Tourane's facings are a deeper blue and Diesbach has a collar added after Rossbach|
Next week I hope to have a larger submission, year end is winding down at the 2/3rds of my job where I do actuarial work and it's break week at the 2/3rds of my job where I teach. Plus the nurgles invading my sinuses and lungs are being crushed and the Olympics help with the painting mojo.
|Full battalion in line.|
|The Front Rank and Crusader figs match up better than I expected. The attack column is ahistorical for SYW, but I can get the full battalion in view!|
|Strictly speaking this should be a two battalion regiment, but I am am building only one battalion per regiment so as to max out on the unit variety.|
