Its day two of 2017 here in NZ. Happy new year to one and all
I thought I’d start off with pictures of a new unit though
I’m not sure if these should be counted as the first completed figures of 2017 or the last ones of 2016 as I’ve only just finished the basing today though did the bulk of the paintwork on them just before Christmas and finished the painting in the new year
The 2nd Polish Uhlans from Murawski Miniatures
I’ve had these figures for about 2 years and finally got around to painting them.
On the workbench at the moment are some Perry French Napoleonic light infantry and some command figures from the same army. Next in line will be a command stand and the elite companies of a line infantry battalion that should then take me up to 10 completed French battalions of 36 figures each though 2 of these are in revolutionary uniforms. Sometime late next year I hope to add a few more than start on some Russian opponents.
I suppose it’s somewhat traditional to look back on the previous year which has been a fairly productive one painting wise as I finished off quite a bit of the lead pile though I know that its grown massively with the arrival of some SYW Austrians at Christmas. I shall have to get painting.
I’ve decided to look back over the years in the next few days and weeks rather than confine myself to just 2016 and to this end I’ll post some pictures of various collections
Firstly some 15mm Napoleonics in no particular order
