A slight problem is that the 3rd regiment was one of the Italian regiments that appear not have served in Spain....blast it! I note the 1st, 2nd 4th, 5th and 6th regiments did and the 6th wore the same facing colour at least, possibly with a white collar. I'm not touching them again now though, I can live with them now. They are satin varnished.
So that's French battalion number 8 finished each of 24 figures, plus the 4 skirmisher bases each of 7 figures. Tomorrow morning I might get them together for a parade now that all units can form column or line due to the revised basing style as above.
On Tuesday my daughter is bringing out the Sash & Sabre order for me in her cabin bag. Grand daughters Lilly & Violet are coming of course and Lilly (aged 3) says she's coming out on a rocket. They are coming for almost 3 weeks and we can't wait, although painting will slow down somewhat. I have decided that I will resist starting the cuirassiers until after the 42nd Highlanders command figures are painted but I'll be starting with the 12 figures comprising the 95th Rifles.
Base edges just need another coat tomorrow.
