So recently I was ruminating on what to do next for projects. A little of this and that, or concentrate on something big? Life has a way of giving you the easy out sometimes. I went to visit family and friends and accepted several painting commissions! So now I'm up to my ears in 15mm Russian Napoleonics. Lots of Old Glory and some older MiniFigs. Now I just have to figure out what Cossack artillery looked like. ;-)
This weekend one of my reenactment groups got together for our "Spring Muster." As always we took the opportunity between drill and working on items to do some live firing. So I got out my .62 calibre Fusil de Chasse. Firing at cut-outs and others I was nine for 10 with the tenth still grazing the shoulder of the British Grenadier target. All were at 25 yards so point blank but we were firing at a 6" diameter aiming point. My only long range shot hit a mounted officer just above the knees at 100 yards. Pretty easy when no one is on the other side actively trying to kill you.
So I have a plan for painting, can recharge my "fun money" account with the revenue, and can continue to chip away at the hordes of things for myself awaiting paint. Till next time.
