*I've finally decided upon a hex scale of 1 = 5 miles. This is a nice, unfussy method of measuring distances and also functions as a means of gauging the resources of an area. So far both the Grand Duchy of Hetzenberg and the Margravate of Dunkeldorf-Pfühl measure roughly 150 x 150 miles each. I'm using an A1 sized hexagon paper bought many years ago, and the scale permits plenty of room for minor states around the peripheries of the main combatants. Hetzenberg is now mapped out in rough; the Margrave's domains will be next.

Progress report - 14.
The 24 Spencer Smith miniatures that are to make up the first regiment of the Margrave's army have been de-flashed and undercoated using a matt black spray undercoat for the purpose. While these dry overnight I turned my attention to the master campaign map.
