I've modeled my French FPW army on Bazaine's VI Corps under Canrobert. It was the latter's guns that von Bredow was ordered to silence, leading to the famous Mars-La Tour 'Tottenritt'. I have a few things to do to finish off the French including putting together a command stand. I've had the figures for years but never really got around to doing it - umming and ahhing over just how to compose it. Finishing the Prussian command encouraged me to just get on with it - also finding a suitable MDF wood stand of the right size to put it on. The scene shows Bazaine in 'conference' (in despair more like) with his senior commanders, all looking a tad perplexed.
It is a work in progress that I hope to finish before the end of the month and I go back to work. Got a lot of Prussian infantry to do too and my box of Bolt Action Fallschirmjaeger have arrived demanding attention to finish my WWII German para company. [Sigh] so many figures to paint, so little time...
Well, enough of that melodrama - just to even things up a bit, here's one of the Prussian casualty markers I recently finished. Its a bit unusual in that its an artillery marker as I noticed in BP that there were none to denote hits on guns etc. I'll be adding numbers to the corners so it can be used to represent up to four casualties on any unit and/or a destroyed gun.
I'll post more when I finish the French command but that's it from me for a week or two as I'll be out of town for a bit. As before, click on the pix to see the enlargement and please leave any comments or queries about this or any other of my recent postings - which I promise to answer when I return.
Ciao for now.
