Grand Parade 2013

Each September I usually take the recently painted units out for a stroll on the kitchen table and more or less take a head count of my painting totals for the year. This time I've just checked my blog entries and counted up the little blighters. At 12 figures for a cavalry unit  (except guard at 18) and 24 figures for an infantry unit and four figures on an artillery base; plus 9 command figures - my maths works out at 497 figures.

I also painted up 230 28mm figures for the Ayton game, which is 727 in total.

Command bases: 
General Picton
Prince Bernard
Prince of Orange
General Perponcher
