The Challenge

So it's a challenge, is it?

An army for Lasalle - 256 infantry, 32 cavalry, 7 guns, 21 gunners, and four officers, all in 15mm, fully painted - by my birthday, April 10. So says Watts from Watts on Wargames - and he'll do the equivalent in Russians or pay the price!

It's a big job, but it's doable - I think! I haven't painted a Napoleonics fig in a decade, and have barely put brush to metal at all in the last few years. Fortunately all my little dudes are based and primed, so it's just about assembly line work and discipline now.


  1. I'll have a go at that too, though I'm not sure how successful I'll be. Do we get oneof your birthday presents each if we do manage it?

  2. Well, now that I have located my Frenchies I stand a better chance at actually getting something done as well. I have to un-base my first regiment tho, as I found them nearly impossible to paint all ranked up.

  3. The rule is, if I don't finish on schedule, I don't get the presents you all bought me!
