Stokes commented on my last post to ask which unit I'd begin painting first.
I've still got the Lintzer musketeers "in progress". There's another 2 companies of figures that you don't see in that picture, plus a few odds and ends including one more artillery crew without a gun. While I lined up all the musketeers as one battalion, in reality two of the companies in the picture will be from some other regiment as there are two companies (give or take a couple of figures) on my painting desk.
*Possibly* the leftovers will start the Garde du Corps Prinzessin Getrude. It depends on whether I hit a comfort level in my painting to actually tackle the pink coats, since I'll have to mix paint for it and I'm not yet competent with just the single colors. :P The artillery pieces will likely be done up for the Eisen und Flamme battery, and of course you already know who the Hussars will be.
Then we'll see if by then I'm wealthy enough to afford more. My big goal is to get at least the Lintzer finished before the BIG Game in October, whether I manage to come to the Game or not. Now, if I really hit a stride, then I may try to get the artillery and the two squadrons of Hussars painted up too.
