However back home again, and the painting table calls. In progress is the completion of the eastern front Austro-Hungarian army which has been 'in play' as it were for a couple of years at least.
I have just finished a regiment of Austrian 75mm mountain guns, for no particular reason that that I like the look of these guns. Tis gives me two on table regiments.

I also had an incomplete infantry regiment, something IO'd overlooked, so four extra stands and a regimental HQ were the order of the day there. I have modified my painting style a little, leaving less black showing through, and applying a wash and subsequent highlight. I was after something a little more subtle. I like the result a little more.
Finally from this batch is a second divisional HQ, and a Corps HQ.
Of course there is an agenda here - to be able to fight some of the scenarios from Shawn's latest scenario book Summer Harvest available for purchase here, featuring scenarios from the Russian/Austrian battles of 1914.
All I need is the 'gaming time, and some willing opponents. The former seems to be the biggest obstacle at the moment.
