Off the painting desk today is a nine-figure Impetvs 'T' stand of missile troops. Figures are from Old Glory and muster out as a band of Swiss crossbowmen.
In Impetvs lists, there is always room to squeeze in another unit of crossbowmen. Good thing, that! Two more such nine-figures bands remain in The Lead Pile.
Having battled the flu for more than two weeks, the painting production line seems to have stagnated. Still working on figures at the painting desk but getting these figures to the basing and flocking stage has been a sluggish process at best. Cold outside temperatures have not helped.
On a brighter note, the first Friday Night At The Fights of 2018 kicks off this evening with a rematch at Mollwitz. As I take command of the Austrian Army under von Neipperg, let me see if I have learned any lessons taught in Game #1. The first Mollwitz game was closer than it looked. Can von Neipperg break Frederick's army before his own is broken? Stay tuned.
