Well the Singapore trip is well and truly over. The hot and steamy 33-35 degree (Celsius) temperatures have been replaced by the cold, wet and wind of the first winter storm in Auckland.
I am back into the painting for the great Crimean War game. First off the blocks are some Wargames Foundry Chasseurs d’Afrique to fix up an error in ordering I made back in January. Now instead of one regiment, there are two.
Second is another Foundry unit – and also an error. I had intended to order a Don Cossack Battery, but selected the wrong code and got line artillery instead! The Cossack battery is re-ordered.
Also on the painting table is a regiment of freshly arrived French Crimean War infantry and a couple of British batteries, all from great War, but more on them later.
