1st unit of Hungarians completed Sunday afternoon. Was trying to see if I could do a unit in a day (Saturday to be precise) but couldn't be bothered to concentrate that long. Its perfectly possible, only takes a few hours, but I couldn't be bothered.

Also did the CinC and 3 sub commands Sunday night.

Pics to follow tomorrow (well, later today to be precise)

The mdf figures are not for me, but I do so like the look. Very old school, and simple - I would use them in a landscape of children's wooden building bricks, lollipop trees and rectangular hills, all the time thinking of H G Wells and Little Wars

Yes; I was very impressed in seeing them at CAVALIER a couple of years ago and nearly bought some but then I thought they were a bit ‘wooden’ and that I would prefer ‘proper’ 6mm from Baccus or H&R.  I will be interested to see how matters proceed when the battlefield is reached.

I've a load for Nappies and ACW - tbh at arms length/game's table you can't tell the difference for most!

Skirmisher types are a bit more awkward, so I've salted a fair number of Adler across the bases Wink

Hungarians

Another unit, with "attached officer" stand.

In Fields of Glory you can replace a stand with an attached officer. It represents a particularly good commander at regimental level, or if there are more senior officers than normal leading. I'm converting an historical list. Where a brigade equals 1 unit I'm not adding, but where the regiments that make up the bde are each big enough to be a unit, I'm putting the Bde commander in, as FoG has commanders at Corps and Divisional level.

Unlike the French, where all the uniforms are the same, I have to do some Hungarian and some German for the surrounding infantry.

Are you going to paint the edges of the bases green?

Now for something completely a little different

The Carneville Legion. There were 200 infantry and 100 Hussars in Reinhard's brigade just before Aspern-Essling.  I am putting them into the IR#33 Regiment ( the Hungarians on the right) for FoG - this turns it from 1 'Large' (6 bases) unit into 2 'small' (each 4 bases) units - the one with the hussars will count as having a cavalry attachment, which reduces the effectiveness of enemy skirmish fire.

However, many of them never made it to the actual battle, having been ambushed the night before by a French raid.
