I've made good, if slow, progress with this project. The first half of the legion (below, clickable) is painted and based. I still need to add tufts, tonight, and do a little snagging work; then they will be finished..
Around half of the second half (not shown) are also stuck onto their bases. Nick is furiously painting away on a draft of reinforcements, in Essex, which will complete the legion (at 1:20 scale).
In other news, I have been inspired by these stunning photos to dig out a project I last worked on around 20 years ago... more anon.
