Good Morning All
I think I mentioned in my last post regarding the Napoleonic project that I was working on the French Infantry
(previous post here - http://shedwars.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/napoleonic-project-part-9-chasseurs.html )
Well I am delighted to report that the planned 12 battalions are now complete and are proud to be lined up in line formation on my kitchen table.
Each battalion is 24 men strong and includes flank companies (voltiguers and grenadiers).
The figures themselves are made up on Warlord, Perry and Front Rank - all in my eye are perfectly interchangeable.
That's 288 infantry figures so far...
The flags have been used straight from the boxes
Each battalion comprises of six movement trays - thereby allowing a multitude of formations to be created
The two units at the back are light infantry with their solid blue uniforms
Having laid these out I cant help but think that this is not enough so I have decided to add a further four regiments of French Infantry to the painting pile ;-)
Come back soon
Part 11 is here
Very nice - I admire your 'just get on and do it' commitment, it brings results, while the likes of myself spend too much time 'getting around to it' :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks Norm - once I start I have to finish ;-)Delete
Wow! This is a certain something about French Napoleonic infantry.ReplyDelete
Splendid, you are a painting machine Sir.ReplyDelete
a machine that needs regularly oiling with alcohol ;-)Delete
It has taken me a year to paint just over 60 French. This has put me to shame.ReplyDelete
Really impressive, all the same.
But I bet yours are much smarter than mine...Delete
Look great, lovely work in record time, mine are moving at a glacial speed by comparison!ReplyDelete
but slow and steady will sometimes win the raceDelete
Only four more regiments? Are you sure? ;)ReplyDelete
Nice work on the French foot so far :)
Actually it might be six...;-)Delete
I don't believe it! I need to find a new hobby! If you don't mind me asking, how much time a week do you spend painting?ReplyDelete
how much time a week? sometime no hours but for the last four weeks I have been pretty much painting three hours a night five days a week - there is nowt worth watching on TV.Delete
on average each infantry figure takes about 10 mins to complete but to achieve this you have to employ a factory line principle - believe me painting 288 pairs of trousers in one sitting is not fun.
Its all block painting - no highlights or shading - and it is very basic
I'm lost for words really...ReplyDelete
