well the painting seems to be working out, just putting finishing touches to some peninsular British standard stands to finish off three battalions, a bit of a cheat but having acquired some british figures already painted, but more than i use in my 24 figure battalions , adding a few stands of regimental flags i've stretched three units to five, with most of the units having the same facing colours, i can always return them to there bigger battalions if i wish for different rules. also allows me to create different divisions just by swapping stands , shame is i can't be so detailed as to paint the regimental numbers on equipment, but truth is i'm a wargamer first and a painter second

the fifteen minute painting period between the first scene of the second act and the rest of the play has been a great discipline, i'm getting more painted in those fifteen minute bursts than i have done for years, although it does raise the odd eyebrow form the other actors

will post some of my pictures if the come out , i have no proper camera just my little iphone but we shall see
