Well I have been painting quite a bit recently, but not Blagovian troops. After much prevarication I have taken  the plunge, and decided to paint some historical SYW troops -the army of Schaumburg-Lippe. Using the wonderful kronoskaf site as my guide (Schaumburg-Lippe_Army) painting has been proceeding apace lately.  The beauty of Schaumberg-Lippe for me is that it's small enough that I will be able to quickly complete it. For some reason I have currently lost my interest in painting Imagi-Nation troops, but I am sure once the Shaumburg-Lippe units are done, my attention will be re-focused towards Blagovia, Nabburg, et al.

I have, thus far, completed the Jäger Company, and three gun crews. I must admit that I am having a wonderful time assembling and painting this army. Once I base the gunners, and complete some final touches, I will start into the line infantry. Unfortunately, I will have to wait for some suitable Bückeburg Carabiniers to complete the army, but that's fine by me. Hopefully Jim at Fife and Drum will have some next year. Until then I will have to use my forces sans cavalry.

The basing is complete not, but I may have to retouch them, if I use these chaps, as the turnbacks should be dark green. In any event, I am sure that I can a home for them with Blagovia.

 Just a few buttons to paint, and I can base them. I have two small cannons painted and ready, and I will assemble and paint the 12 pounders once I figure out what I want to do with the bases.
