Outpaced by the Assyrian cavalry on display last week, Assyrian infantry begin to make its way to the photo booth. A number of units are finished and have stacked up waiting for a turn at a photo session.
First of the half-dozen infantry to make an appearance is a fourteen figure unit of large shield-wielding auxiliary infantry. While the large, tower shield masks most of each figure, the figures are decked out in a simple tunic. Figures are from Wargames Foundry.
I spent part of the weekend clearing the table of the Kunersdorf battle. Having been out on the table for nearly three months, time to clear the deck and consider what game to focus on next. With the Kunersdorf battle outcome seemingly foregone, no immediate need to refight the battle a third time. Besides, time to give another period an exercise out on the game table. What next? Who knows?
On the painting front, this weekend saw work on a Minden battalion of Prussian combined grenadiers and three battalions of French infantry for the 1799 project. The French are some of the early French in bicorne released last summer by 19th Century Miniatures. Unhappy with the quality of these sculpts, 19th Century resculpted the line. The replacement French infantry arrived this week from 19th Century. The new figures look great!
