So another 18 miniatures finished. But what is it that I hear, AB miniatures being worth the points of 20mm's now! Bloody hell, might actually make reaching my target possible! So it seems I have netted 104 more points from my previous entries than I had thought! I'll leave it to the point gods to decide my faith and alter the results as needed :)
This one is the last of the yellow faced units that I have to do so I'm finally done with my most hated colour to paint! Hooray! After this it's only struggling with one shade that doesn't seem to cover even itself. White and yellow just seem so horrible to paint up always. I received some reinforcements which included casualty figures, too bad most of the sculpts weren't really usable in a unit and I'll just leave them for casualty markers. The blood splatter didn't turn out very well though so I might just have to go back and cover it up if I don't start liking it soon.
Next Saxon unit on the line is Regiment von Steindel with two battalions. That will be the last of the line infantry from the 1st Saxon Division. Unfortunately Fighting 15s can't supply Light and Grenadiers until sometime in March so I'll have to wait until then to order more. At least I have enough minis for all the 12 line battalions so I'll be painting them until other minis are available.
Great to see more Napoleonics marching in to the Challenge. The sculpts from AB do set the bar, and your painting skills definitely bring out the best in them. I hope you celebrate your liberation from painting white and yellow - although I suspect, the hobby gods being what they are, you will suddenly end up with a project where you will end up once again with these exact colours...
As for the back scoring, I'll see if my ace spreadsheet colleagues can help me figure that out, but in the interim, here are another 72 points for your efforts!
