Here now, is the lion's share of my February efforts. 26 stands of Infantry in Shako. I painted the equivalent of another 7 stands which were used in the infantry squares or are still awaiting basing.
Most of these are mounted on 55x35mm stands for using with my 2in hex boards if I choose to take that route. Given the shear volume of minis, I tried to go with some variation to see what I like best. One focus, for example, was to do two to three of each facing color so I could reflect multiple battalions in the same regiment. I also alternated between white and yellow standards (purely for visual identification) to separate 1st and 2nd battalions.

|Hungarian and German battalions on the shorter stands)|
Combined with the figures I have already done this gives me 55 stands of Line infantry (about 1/3 Hungarian to 2/3 German) 3 Stands of combined Grenediers, 3 of Grenze and 4 of Jaegers. I plan on adding more regiments of Jaegers and Grenzers after Baccus releases the Landwehr and new Grenze sculpts. Combined with the new Austrian casualty stands, it looks to be a big order.
With this project out of the way for now, I am now awaiting the arrival of my Adler Imperial Guard figures and Baccus Bavarian Corps. Whichever arrives first establishes my goals for March 2013. I am thinking about trying for a less taxing figure count however......
