  8. Thank you for the kind words everyone! Helps to keep up the motivation. I’m planning armies to fit scenarios of both the Imperial and the Republican phase of the Franco-Prussian War, so more to come… next step will be finishing up the French Tirailleurs Algériens.
    @ Jonas M: Absolutely, will be sure to give you a shout when I have enough painted units to run a decent scenario.
