Reinforcements have arrived

Huzzah! French infantry reinforcements arrived today. I have diligently organised them into separate batches, each batch having all the figures to complete 2 bases. When added to the stuff in the bits box I have enough figures for 8 more french infantry bases, and if I get a few more command and skirmish figures I can churn out another three or four.

I'm just off to undercoat the figures for the next two bases.

Exam tomorrow, I have to go all the way to Aston Uni for this, so I'll probably be back too late to start painting tomorrow and I'm hopig to actually get a game in on Wednesday. Painting should therefore start on Thursday. If I stick to it I think I can get 4 bases finished by Sunday week, and maybe start to make inroads into two more.

I've more-or-less settled on concentrating on Aspern Essling for now and have the OOB pretty well worked out. Infantry bases represent anout 2400-3000 men and cavalry around 1200-1500 troopers.
