That said, I have managed to complete two of the four battalions of Russian Napoleonic jagers required to finish the infantry component for that army.
Also on the painting table are the first of the Russian Napoleonic militia. I have completed the command groups for all three units, plus a couple of packs of pikemen. These are great sets from the Perrys. The flags were taken from an image on the Warlord Games forum and edited in Photoshop.
On the terrain front there are three projects under way.
First is the East African Hotel, which is really taking shape now and just requires the roof crest and the verandah to be completed. The verandah will need to be a separate piece fitted after the front of the main structure is painted.
Second is a next batch of native huts - I need to make ten of these to go with the four I made some time ago. The three phases of construction are shown below, left to right; the polystyrene form, the first layer of epoxy putty applied, a finished item.
Third is a bunch (the best way to described them) of bush terrain pieces for East Africa. My friend Keith at the Bydand blog found this stuff at the Two Dollar Shop. I am not really sure what this stuff is, perhaps it is some fish tank foliage, but whatever it is it works for my purpose.
