My Wargaming Week, 30th January 2015
The painting this week has gone OK and I have finished off another Hessian grenadier company while making progress on more figures.
I also finished painting the two chaps below as an artillery command stand. They are actually from the Perry AWI Hesse-Cassel garrison troops command set. I'm pleased with the telescope lens as I've not painted "jewels" etc for a while.
So. Still to finish are the grenadiers of the fusilier regiment Erbprinz and some command stands.
...and no, I don't fancy doing both right now!
Apart from painting I have arranged a table for an AWI game at Partizan in May. This is likely to feature the Hessians and British attacking the rebels, probably as part of the 1776/77 campaign. It will make a change from the south. My current thinking is a hypothetical mash-up of two battles; Bound Brook and Short Hills, probably taking the former situation but with an OOB more like the latter.
My recent reading on the 1776/7 battles suggests I really need an extra battalion each of British light infantry and British grenadiers. So these could be the next projects.
I might not get much more done this weekend as I'm on call, but should get those Hessians finished by this time next week and maybe even finish the basing.
