Wow, has it really been a month already? This is officially my longest hiatus from the blog in its seven years of existence. Sorry about that.
I opted to go with open order basing for the lights, much as I did with the 18mm Russian project. I think it makes them stand out a little better on the table and helps to better sell the 'mass' of the heavy cavalry regiments to the casual observer.
There is actually a fairly good backlog for me to work through right now. I have a massive number of models completed that need basing. Unfortunately, I discovered that my supply of necessary 30x60mm bases in nearly depleted. My Hungarian division and supporting Hussars will now have to wait for Litko to fill the order. If what I have heard is true, that may be more rapid than in times long past. We shall see!
