To that end, the 5th and 6th squadrons of the Austrian Cuirassier Regiment #4 Stampach muster out from the painting desk. Squadrons 1-4 were fielded in 2008. Nine years have passed since this regiment last received reinforcements. Nine years? Shocking! Had I not witnessed this in the Painting Log, I would not have believed my eyes.
The 18mm SYW project has not seen much activity on the painting desk lately. In fact, the last reinforcements for the project were seen in January 2015. That is a long hiatus. Without getting the collection out onto the gaming table in a regular fashion and the number of competing projects, I suppose inactivity on this front is expected.
These two squadrons of six troopers each are all from Eureka's excellent range of SYW figures. By last count, Austrian horse have now reached a total of 47 squadrons. Forty-seven squadrons! Slow and steady progress yields big results over time. I imagine the Prussians have a similarly sized cavalry arm.
