It's been more than a week since my last progress update, but it's taken me that long to reach the target I set out then. I have completed the final wave of 16 Stirland Halberdiers. This means I now have 42 in the unit. It's not enough for an effective unit in a proper battle, however with a decent unit filler the regiment will be a good, solid size.

|All 42 Halberdiers, somewhat tediously ranked up together. These current plastics really don't line up all that well, especially when most of them were assembled by a previous owner...|
I'd love to tell you that I've discovered the key to painting these 7th edition plastic State Troops over the course of this challenge, but the truth is that there have been no real revelations. In fact, even as I type this I am remembering something I forgot last night - I neglected to paint the brassy bits on the hourglasses, lanterns etc that these silly soldiers insist on lugging into battle. I guess that will be a task for tonight.
|Grrr, we are fearsome and ugly and have very few teeth. Fear us!|
