Well, this time I want to start the New Year by setting some "realistic" goals:
(i) To complete the Reichsarmee for Volley and Bayonet. Thus far I have done a sizeable Imperial contingent. To complete the lot I need to paint the following units:
IR Herzoglich Sächsisches (Weimar, Saxe-Coburg and Hildburghausen)
IR Munster (IR Elverfeldt (1 batt.) + IR Nagel (1 batt.))
IR Kurkoln (Leib-IR Nothaft (1 batt.)+IR Wildenstein (1 batt.));
the last three unit being composite "regiment" in the game format formed by battalions from different units: in particular the Herzoglich Sächsisches Regiment has three different uniforms, the difference between the Koln and Munster battalions being lost in 6mm.
I left out the Pfalz-Hussars (60-70 gentlemen: they shall appear as orderly in the Prince of Zweibrucken command base) and the undistinguished Sachsen-Gotha dragoons, only 200 and therefore below the V&B scale.
Indeed the first two of the list and Kurkoln are already finished and need only to be flocked and photographed...
(ii) To prepare a scenario for the battles of Korbitz and Strehla, two battles were the Reichsarmee was involved together with an Austrian contingent against inferior Prussian forces. A nice scenario for the latter can be found here.
