|The Grenadier Company of Rosmark's Irish Regiment drilling on their new washer bases.|
40mm Prince August homecast.
Apologies for the picture quality, this one is on the lazy photographer and gloss varnish, not his equipment.
Casting a drummer and doing a head swap has been a task put off time and again until not needed. The drummer is from the new Prince August Prussian drummer. The Grenadiers are from the old Rosbach range. I almost set about painting the new washer bases green in my current fashion but luckily remembered that the rest of the army is finished this way so it would be all or nothing.
I would have liked to take a whole regiment of the new figures with me but I'm not set up for inside casting and this winter was brutal and prolonged. With only 2 weekends left to prepare and spring chores doubled, that won't happen now. There is a slim chance I might be able to finish a Grenadier company for a new regiment to bring in place of MacDuff's but its a low priority and not helped by casting problems last week. I could not get the officer's sword to cast, or the nco and the marching infantry mold kept leaking out the side. Nothing serious but it was too cold, too dark and too cluttered in the shed to spend the time required to figure out what the problem was and fix it. Once things warm up a bit more I'll be able to open the doors up, tidy up my work area, get some lights set up again and go to work comfortably.
