Seven Years War [4]: A New Distraction

Progress on the Seven Years War project has been slow. There has been a lot of housework getting ready for our newest family member. (Who arrived Friday! And he's the best son ever!) And when I've found time to work on hobby projects, I keep going off on tangents.

For this project I finished up a single unit of Kurassiers and worked on some houses for a town. I'm happy with the basic construction process, but I can't paint fine lines to save my life. I'll have to cut out the timber framing and glue it in place to get these to look any good. Once I work out a good process I'll write up a how-to.  ANever if you're lucky, I'll make templates too.

My latest distraction is in that picture as well, but I'll save that project for another post.

I've finished up the two grenadier battalions, based them, and finished up the basing on everything else as well. Here are the grenadiers and four previously completed line infantry battalions.

Next up, Austrian Kurassiers.

Seven Years War [2]

I'm back to working on my Seven Years War project after far too long away from it. To keep myself honest I've joined in the 2016 army painter challenge over at the Lead Adventure Forum. My goal is to finish at least two units a month. This week I finished half of one converged grenadier battalion and two of three stands for half of another. The rest of the two units should get finished this week. These are for the as-yet unnamed Imperial-allied army.

I've worked out that I need to paint up three units each month to be ready for Colonial Barracks this year. Last night I finished up my third infantry unit for February.

Next up, some cavalry.
