Wednesday night I painted up the Kurfurst regiment's Grenadier company. the Electorate forces use combined grenadier battalions in the field, so these will be fielded in a formation with the Kurprinz grenadiers when I get around to ordering that 2nd infantry regiment.

I also finally got around to assembling and finishing an orchard I've had kicking around my back room since the beginning of last December. it is 16"x16" and has 9 removable trees, and a hand-made front gate. I cut matchsticks in half and then split them lengthwise to get the right thickness. I glued them open so that I can get a 25mm-30mm base through. I got lazy and decided not to put a gate on the back. Despite the trees being removeable, I decided to leave enough space between the wall and the tree bases to fit a 60mm movement trays or a 50mm base(which our Napoleonics are on).
