|Maffei at the front, Luetzelburg at the rear. All ready to be hidden away in the boxes. I've smartened them up a bit, but these are still identifiable as from the original 1970s army, which is what I intended, so I'm pleased with that!|
I was going to arrange a group photo of all the Bavarians I have ready for action, but decided against it - I'll get to that another time - the gaps still irritate me! For a while I was sorting out the boxes, crawling around on the attic floor in a way that I would have found extremely natural when I was eleven or thereabout - the knees must be in better shape than I thought!
When I do the Bavarian group picture, maybe the attic floor would be a good setting - shades of HG Wells, too.
For the Bavarians, I have now completed the following:
Leibregt (2 Bns)
IR Haxthausen (2 Bns)
4 guns & crews
I have to complete refurbishment of:
IR Kurprinz (2 Bns)
IR Bettendorf (2 Bns)
And I have yet to start:
Leibregt Grenadier Bn
All the General Staff
Set out like that, somehow it looks like progress is being made!
I think I have made something of a decision this morning - I may change my mind, of course! While sorting through the various units in the WSS boxes, I got confused a couple of times by the fact that the Bavarian and Austrian cavalry look very similar. The units are all fitted with 5mm dice frames, to carry status scores in my new rules. They have white dice fitted at present, but I also have red and blue mini-dice of the same size, so I think I'll issue the Bavarians with blue dice, to avoid any embarrassing mistakes! Stryker can tell you about such mistakes.
