This is the first half of a Young Guard battalion for Roy. It took a bit of time to build these up, but the results are worth it I think. Still needs musket straps and pom poms etc but that will be done once the other 12 figures are finished off. You can see from the casting (Hinton Hunt code FN 77 on base) how the musket tends to 'wrap' around the body somewhat, but once painted they look OK.
Need to check a few small details but should be a nice battalion once completed. As usual blues don't reproduce well in pics, actual shade is closer to the shade of blue of the officer figure below.
These are intended for 'Vintage Waterloo'. In addition to these three units I have another Prussian battalion coming, together with two regiments of HH cavalry, plus a battalion of British from Ian as I was keen to paint some redcoats again! I also have 20mm ACW's to paint and understand that more Spanish are also on the way soon, busy time ahead but I'm really enjoying my painting at the moment and not being distracted by personal projects so production is good.
