Been a short lay off on these (5 years).
But 18th Division is done, completeing IX Corps, apart from the Corps artillery reserve and Corps commander (intrestingly, they don't appear to have had a horse artillery battery in the corps artillery reserve, Mollinary, Cameronian, Chad, can you check your sources)

The whole division advances (not technically accurate, as 11th Grenadiers were painted some years ago to complete Prussian forces at Mars-La-Tours and will be joining them in their box this afternoon, but there is an extra unit that was involved with them at Amanvillers, can you guess who they are)?


And here they come out the afternoon sun.




6th Dragoons


Divisional artillery


The infantry (had not spotted the pva had not quite dried on the jagers, ho hum)


Divisional command


Not labelled yet, but have you spotted who they are?

Yes, 1st Guard Grenadiers Kaiser Alexander. 3rd and Schutzen will join them soon no doubt!

They are looking good in the summer sun; how will they do when the winter begins after the French refuse to surrender at Sedan? Your collection must be enormous by now. And five years is only a short time to wait to paint these.

Nice!

5 years is a perfectly acceptable run up time says the guy with GZG 28mm Neu Swabian Jagers that have been in a bag for 20 years or so! I reckon if I paint them now or sell them it's basically calling the Reaper....... Evil

Sorry late to the party on this, but what set of rules are these based for? The figures are beautifully painted and the large bases really set them off.

Cheers
