For this entry, I'll kick off with four infantry regiments - there will be another four along before the end of this Challenge if I don't get distracted.
All four regiments:
Close-Ups of Flags:
As always, the sculpted-on flags have been impressionistically hand painted.
And some artillery:
Up to now, I haven't added any of the integral fusiliers to the artillery bases, but I have this time (one way to use up spare figures!). The guns are left loose rather than glued to the bases, as it allows me to represent them as limbered, like so:
When the Observation Corps was disbanded in 1760, those troops who weren't integrated into the artillery were formed into fusilier regiments and allocated to escorting the artillery supply train. The uniforms I've painted them in here are taken from Kronoskaf and certainly make a refreshing change from the rest of the army.
To assist our resident mathemagical minion with his calculation of points:
72 infantry @ 2 points = 144
4 hand-painted flags @ 1 point = 4
6 gun crew @ 2 points = 12
2 artillery fusiliers* @ 2 points = 4
2 guns @ 4 points = 8
2 limbers @ 4 points = 8 (if scored as crew-served weapons)
20 horses @ 2 points = 40
8 (ex Observation Corps) fusiliers* @ 2 points = 16
4 wagons @ 6 points = 24 (if scored as vehicles)
Total = 252 points
* 2 of the artillery and 4 of the ex Observation Corps fusiliers were painted before the Challenge so don't count for points.
I'll let Miles do his sums, in case he decides to assign different points for the limbers and wagons.
Figures, as always are 15mm from Essex Miniatures. the tufts on the artillery and wagon bases were home-made (I used some of the ones from my practice/test batches) - I may end up replacing a couple on the gun bases as they are slightly too big for the guns to sit properly.
MilesR: I'll go with the very well laid out maths for Tamsin, but I get 260 points - I'm going a little batty with all the points bombs going off this Monday. I can say these figures are just superbly painted. I am very impressed
