We've moved game night this week to Friday night due to some of the guys social commitments. Imagine that, wargamers with social commitments. They'll be having girlfriends next.
Two Austrian battalions painted using very different techniques. My personal preference is for the right hand one. The Hungarians on the left were painted in Sri Lanka as part of a large order and the Germans were a one off buy from e-bay.
A Westphalian square, part of the division holding the French left. These are part of a six battalion division painted by Neil Sheardown.
Smiling through adversity, Eric throws yet more sixes in the cavalry combat which see off my Prussian heavies. It's a good thing he can't read my mind.
I really like this photo, Prussian light cavalry advancing to mix it with Eric's French dragoons, though outnumbered they managed to win the melee and Eric's apalling morale dice did the rest.
Not a part of our current game but the latest arrivals at the garage are these Suom hussars. Mr Sheardown has developed a taste for experimenting with a soldering iron and has modelled the lead squadron taking casualties from fire. He's also used pins for the sabres a couple of which have already drawn blood.

Cavalry combat between Prussian cuirassier and Wurtemburg lights. Despite the Prussians having a decent advantage the first round of melee was drawn and the french were able to make their superior numbers tell in the following two rounds.
There are lots more where these shots came from so I'll look at posting a few more over the weekend.
