Now I'm back in Canberra where I belong, I've managed to reunite the entirety of my 48th foot and base them - basically. I'm still separated from my possessions and unable to paint or build anything for the next few months but have at least based these chaps - I couldn't wait to see how they look.
The only other unit comparable in size I've ever constructed (70 figures) was for one of my other major efforts - Project Lewes. Whilst they were irregular infantry (always more involved) the detail on these uniforms put them on par in the effort stakes for my money. Was that that a triple-cliche sentence I just wrote?
Anyway, once ensconced in a residence of my own and settle, it will be full steam ahead.
