The past few weeks have been productive from a painting perspective, partly spurred on by a painting challenge on the LAW but more significantly by a few extra days off and rainy weekends that have kept me out of the garden. http://thelaofwargamers.prophpbb.com/topic1752.html
I set myself a modest target with a plan to finish off the rest of my 28mm Prussian SYW figures but I’m pleased to have exceeded it with a flurry of activity in Napoleonics.
I’ve ordered Dave Brown’s General D’Armee Rules which are due to be released in May at Partizan
I’ve been fortunate to play the development set which use much the same mechanisms as Dave ACW version of Pickett’s charge and are aimed at large battles and with this in mind I first of all finished a unit of 15mm AB French Line Lancers
I thought I might need a few more French Cavalry!
After this I decided to find a home for the Perry French Napoleonic Commanders I showed in the last post by completing some additional packs numbered 3,4,14,15,53 and 55 from the French Metal range https://www.perry-miniatures.com/index.php?cPath=23_28_54&page=4&osCsid=64sa93aokpt830qtta6qni4ij6
I really enjoyed painting these, particularly the dismounted hangers on pack
I finished them today but in my hurry to take photos outside before the light faded I’m afraid that I didn’t allow enough time for the glue holding the flock to dry and I also forgot to blow off the excess flock before snapping away!
I also managed to finish off the 2 limber riders that have been hanging around for an age so the Caisson that I painted and based 2 years ago now has some riders at last
Next on the painting table will be some Prussian SYW Command figures and then I’ll try and finish off most of my remaining 15mm Napoleonics with hopefully will include Marshall Ney and a few more French Marshals and some Russian Guard infantry battalions.
Once I’ve cleared a decent amount of backlog I might then allow myself to buy some 28mm Napoleonic Russians to oppose the French
