I have finally managed to get my painting mojo back. I started off on a couple of old fantasy Dwarves that I have had lying around in a box from my teenage years, then I quickly painted up the remaining 11 figures of my French infantry regiment for the French Indian War. I found that by picking up random figures and just painting brought my enthusiasm back though this got sorely tested when I finished off some Austrian Jaegers. I found these a pain and just did not enjoy painting them, forcing myself to get them done so I can get back to painting up some WSS figures. I will post some pictures later when the light is better for taking them.
Those with sharp eyes will have noticed that I have updated the paint plan for the Friedlingen project. I was quite surprised at how much that I have actually painted, especially for the Imperialists. Some of the regiments I am still a little unsure of, especially among the French. There are 3 regiments of Dragoons present but so far I have been unable to trace their names. There is also the Infantry regiment de Robecq and I can find no record for these. Any help appreciated.
I now have 2 more battalions on my painting table and expect to have them finished by the weekend. On checking through the lead pile I have enough figures for a further 3 battalions before some purchases will have to be made. Luckily with the York show coming up I might make the trip down as Dixon Miniatures always have a stand on.
As mentioned earlier I hope to get some photos up at the weekend just to prove that I have been painting.
