The Wargaming Compendium

I received my copy of Henry Hyde's The Wargaming Compendium yesterday.  An excellent surprise in my mailbox after a long cold wet and rainy day outdoors. I am looking forward to reading it, as it looks like it's chocked full of excellent photographs, and wonderful descriptions.

Although the blog has been silent of late, my painting output has been prolific, compared to my usually glacial painting speed. I have three projects on the go currently, and I am proceeding well in all three cases. I completed my  Schaumburg-Lippe artillerists  and Jagers, (of which the latter I have to repaint as I incorrectly painted their turn-backs yellow) and I now have finished painting the faces, trousers and waistcoats of the musketeers and fusiliers. I have also got one battalion, 18 miniatures, of Hanoverians done who will serve as mercenaries for one of my Imagi-Nation forces, probably Luetonia. The final project is a regiment of WSS era musketeers painted as Luetonians from the War of the Luetonian Succession -yes they had one of those too... After seeing Phil Ollies excellent Vaubarian Infantry Regt 3 - Breitner on his blog I was inspired to paint up some of my own WSS era units. More of which I'll talk about in a future post. If you are interested in seeing Phil's work click on the link to the right.

All in all I am happy at my production. It looks like I will be spending some time on basing in the near future, as my finished queue is starting to fill up
