Hi Folks.

I am sorry I have not posted much in a while. I have been very busy, with work, kids, and Painting some Austrian artillery and cavalry. Those will follow in a week. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Gorgeous! Looking like that they should put up a stiff fight against the dastardly invaders. :)

Nice looking army.

I love them!
Great job!

By the way ….
You can have more artillery if you want.
The standard thing was 1 battery (12-lber guns, 24-lber unicorns) and 2 light (6-lber guns, 12-lber unicorns) foot companies per infantry division. 12 guns per company. These formed an artillery brigade in each division. It's a wonderful great pile of guns!

Your Wing Commander might have grabbed 2 of the heavy companies from the divisions, to go with the 2 horse companies he got from Army level assets. But there still could be another 6 foot companies above the numbers you have listed.

Also, I think you have this right – but to make sure …
The grenadier division should have 6 grenadier regiments, each of 2 battalions.
The three infantry divisions should each have 4 infantry regiments and 2 jäger regiments, each of 2 battalions.
Each of the four divisions could additionally have 2 combined grenadier battalions, unless you assume that these were assigned outside of your Wing Commander's authority.

So far so good, love the flags/command stands but your light on the artillery. Keeping up on the 1 position, 2 lights can be a drain and I'm finally caught up on my backlog but short on my new 4th division. As stated fantastic looking Army, keep going!

If in doubt, paint another artillery battery!

Thanks…I will paint more artillery later. But, I am having to shift gears. The least of which is to save my eye sight! In Albuquerque,in April, we are having our annual GameDay Weekend and I need to prepare for a Blood and Guts World War Two game for the Eastern Front (1/72). I will post some updates on that, soon.
