I have two nicely balanced forces for some early 18th century campaigning . . . well I do still have a number of units I need to paint for the vile Stagonians . . . but I do have the lead.
Unfortunately none of the units have any grenadiers and I really would like a "company" of them for each battalion . . . so that I can detach them for converged grenadier units. And today I found out that Historifigs has the Bloodaxe molds for such grenadiers.
So, of course, I need to order some. But that will mean that I not only will have to paint them, but I'll have to repaint the figures they'll replace into new units.
All-in-all I'll have somewhere between 150 and 200 foot to paint or repaint. Fortunately the Bloodaxe figures are rather simple to paint. And, when finished, I will have ten battalions of 24-foot each . . . eight regulars and two irregular units for each side (as well as two 12-man units of jagers for each side).
In addition I already have eight painted mounted units for each side . . . four horse, three dragoon and one light horse each. although I do plan to add another unit of hussars to each force later.
So it certainly looks like my painting projects will be waiting for me once I've recovered a bit from the chemo.
