Well, the title explains a lot, a bunch of units that just jumped up and said they needed to be finished, that I'd spent enough time doing things like watching Torchwood episodes, re-organizing figure storage and exploring boardgames new and old.
First up is the first of the 4 militia battalions in Best's brigade. The brigade's other units are yet to be ordered but will look very similar. I need to get some Hanoverian flags as this is part of Best's Brigade but I also have Kielmansegge's brigade to paint up. These are the Perry miniatures Hanoverian militia ' marching, relaxed.'
Next up are the Gordon Highlanders, a part of Pack's Brigade in Picton's division. The yellow facings were a change from the blue and green facings I had been doing. I started off last year with a Highland infantry unit, so I suppose this is the end of that group of three. This unit I did with the figures shown at the charge, differing from the Black Watch and the Seaforth battalions which are both at the advance. The figures are Perry, the standards from the Warflag/Napflag site, the staffs are brass wire.
I did finish the two units within a couple days of each other, and today being a 'snow day' ( New England is supposed to get between one and two and one half feet of snow ) I will attempt to complete their basing.
For the photos, I resorted to the trick MW and WI often used, that is to scatter flock on the unfinished stands, for the shoot, and then return the loose flock into the container.
If I get ambitious and lucky, you may see Braun's Hanoverian Battery and the Kielmansegge Jagers with proper basing as well.
That said, there are several bottles of refreshment, two Pizzas, some Shepherd's Pie, pork chops, ice cream and nachos, even strawberries for a fruit concoction in competition with the basing for my attention over the next couple of days. Ahhh, winter. Good thing we just finished all of the Torchwood episodes on Netflix.
