How many more boxes are you expecting?

Many many years ago the wife gave me a rather substantial gift certificate to a miniatures company. I was wanting to switch from 15mm to the "one true" scale of 28mm and this gift certificate was intended to get me started down the 28mm path.  I spent about 2 months working out what was going to be ordered as well as a lot of time on the phone with the company hammering out the fine details. Turns out that for every 4, or perhaps 5, packs ordered a person would get a free pack - so those had to be accounted for as well.

In the end the wife was home when the order arrived.... 3 boxes weighing in at about 55 - 65 pounds each and and two smaller ones at about 20 - 25 pounds each. When i got home she said there was "something" for me in the garage.

All-n-all the order comprised enough minis to create the following:

Naps: 12 unit armies of British, French and Russian; 6 to 8 unit armies of Bavarian, Württemberg, Saxony and Westphalia all based on a 1:20 ratio à la "In the Grand Manner".

F&IW: 12 unit armies of British, French and Indians based on a 1:20 ratio.

Anglo-Zulu War: 12 unit British army and 15 unit Zulu army based on "The Sword & The Flame".
