I've also rethought what figures to use with the HOLD THE LINE scenarios. I don't have many Editions Brokaw SYW cavalry. The Peter Laing cavalry I have are too small to use with the Edition Brokaw figures. Yesterday I tallied how many figures I would need for the scenarios. I decided to use my Peter Laing WSS figures. I would paint them simply, with blue coats for the Prussians and White for the Austrians. I actually managed to get the infantry figures painted in one night. Hopefully I can get the cavalry done just as fast.
|The green paper with printed hexes. The 2mm terrain pieces fits well on the hexes, and there is plenty of room for the figures.|
|The Prussian army is issued their blue coats.|
|Some of the Austrians. the brown figures are Austrian artillerymen, and Grenzers. The Grenzers are grenadiers with their mitres cut down.|
