Anyway on the bright side I have managed to finish the second of my French grenadier battalions. I am not giving up on the SYW but I did say it was not a priority and it would be long term.
I perhaps have foolishly decided to add the Soviets to my WWII forces and to this end ordered up four infantry squads yesterday. I am aiming to get enough troops and supports at first to play the Chain of Command Konigsberg mini campaign, where German troops are trying for a breakout from the Courland pocket in 1945. A few months ago I had already thought about Soviets for Bolt Action and ordered up the paints required, just in case.
