So, it has become quite clear to me that there is no way I am going to get the whole lot painted by Sunday. I now have basic uniform colours roughly blocked in, but that is as far as it is going to get.
Painting an entire army at once can lead to burn out very quickly. Even with 6 different cavalry and 4 different infantry uniforms to paint.
I am definitely looking forward to getting back to the 18th Century. My soon to be 11 year old daughter has expressed an interest in playing, so it's back to the age old question of scale and rules again. Who knows I might even skip the GNW and advance to the SYW. Either that or the various Russo-Turkic wars or the lovely new 15mm Caucasian range coming out in support of FoGR, a rule set I have no strong interest in, but oh those lovely figures.
