Had a good weeks painting this week, got a lot done and I'm pleased with all of it. Firstly I got to finish off this 55 figure English Civil War unit, the third I have done so far for Graham. The deep red works well with the green lining showing at the cuffs. 16 pikemen flanked by two blocks each of 16 musketeers plus 7 command figures. 20mm SHQ Miniatures, very nice figures to paint although I had to drill out all the pike hands otherwise the pikes won't fit through. I'm pleased with these.
Next up are these 20mm plastic Crimean Generals for Mr. Kinch. I think they are by Strelets and are fine little sculpts. Once undercoated black you can see some real character. I'll enjoy painting these.
To follow are more Early Spanish infantry for Tony then back to Old John!
Now, as I always have to be doing something 'for myself' on the side (even though it will probably end up on ebay a few months on!), I decided to have another go at 6mm, just to see what I could still do with them. I ordered an AWI British Army pack from Baccus and is the first weeks output is shown below, 2 line battalions, a Grenadier battalion and light infantry. A most enjoyable experience again. I'll just paint these as and when I feel like it, in between the other work.
