I also finally received my pack of GMB french flags from the post man on friday and immediately got to use them. I decided to start the 1st Corps from 3rd Division led by General Marcognet. This bunch is going to represent the 1st Battalion of 21e Régiment de Ligne. The flags from GMB are once again really nice, but quite big for Perry minis. Somewhat surprisingly the flagpole included in the metal regimental command pack was long enough to fit the flag. The plastic ones from Perry are about 5mm shorter and wouldn't fit.
I also managed to get the rest of the Flames of War Open Fire boxset built, based and undercoated. Hopefully I'll have time to finish them for the Analogue Hobbies painting competition. But at least now I can start practicing playing the game. And maybe my better half is a bit happier after I've managed to finish her gift for me.
