Amongst the hub-bub of wedding activities this weekend, I did manage to steal a few hours at the painting desk. The result of this short burst was a second unit of Impetvs 'T' crossbowmen. As most of the figures in this project, the crossbowmen are BTD. I continue to enjoy painting figures from BTD's Warriors of Islam range even though the last two months have seen little else cross the painting desk. The Moors have not gotten tiresome to paint and I am lunging forward with plans to field additional units.
To prevent a painting rut, the Reconquista project will step aside while I tackle units from other projects. One such diversion is a four-battalion regiment of Sardinian infantry for the 1859 project. I had these 48 figures primed and ready to move onto the painting table about the same time as the origination of the Reconquista in July. With the push to produce Moors, these fellows languished in the lead pile.
