Now, for the painting desk. Upon returning from my business trip, the production line is once again beginning to churn back to life. At present, I have three groups of figures in work. Likely to be the next off the painting desk are 32 French chasseurs for the 1859 project. These 32 figures will be fielded as two battalions. The yellow on dark blue caps make these fellows very distinctive on the battlefield. Sharing the painting box with the chasseurs are a half-dozen Perry Stradiots for the Great Italian Wars project. With a unique and interesting headgear and shields, these light horse will make colorful additions to the collection.
Also in the production line are eight Front Rank lancers for the Peninsular War project. When building a Peninsular War project, who cannot help but field the Vistula Legion lancers? Remembering the success of the Vistula Lancers at Albuera, I could not resist fielding a unit of these beauties.
Well, that sums up the state of the painting desk for this time.
