Not sure which unit I should do next. I've Bosniaken/Towarczys primed up along with 8 to 10 Cuiriassier squadrons and to top that off I've got the 2nd regiment of infantry primed so I can work on my completing my first infantry brigade. Oh, I almost forgot about some artillerists as well. :) I've got a lot to choose from so I'm sure I'll stay busy inbetween the job searching.As always, thanks for stopping by and all comments are welcome.

I've had a lot of time to paint lately due to being laid off from my job of 33+ years. I'm actively seeking work but in the meantime I have the opportunity to paint figures for my 1806 project. I decided to paint up some of the cav figures I have just to see how they'd turn out. I think they came out ok. I know that Elite Miniatures may not be everyone's favorite but they do paint up nicely. I also painted up a squadron of the Saxon hussars which I've always wanted to do. I think they look really cool in their white and light blue. The fun part is that since I'm painting these units up based on the "Republic to Empire" rule set the Saxon hussars have only 6 figures per squadron. I was able to paint the entire squadron and mount it up in one day! That felt really good.
Anyway, on to the photos. One other thing is that I took some new pictures of the Prussian infantry I've already painted up in the hope that the photos turned out better.
