Another weeks painting.

Very much enjoying my painting right now. The freedom to just paint single bases for my DBN/C&C collections is liberating and allows for some diversity whilst working in Johns wonderful WSS 20mm figures. This last weeks output has been four more 18mm bases of AB's and 4 cavalry and 4 infantry for John (Papal State infantry Les Higgins & Austrian Cuirassiers, but I'm sure John will provide full details on make of figures etc).

I had the French Guard Lancers in the drawer for just a couple of weeks and simply could not resist painting them, and as I begin to gradually branch out towards campaigns beyond the Peninsular I have plans for the Imperial Guard in full. Also added another base of French cuirassiers (in blue coats) and another base of British Guard infantry. Next up are some WSS artillery for John and a base of Marines of the Guard (AB) for myself. 

As usual, plenty of pics!

    1. Thank you Jonathan, I really enjoyed painting the Papal command group, John provides full colour references for everything which makes painting them straight forward.

  5. Gorgeous looking Lancers, always nice to see Napoleonic cuirassiers! All the other Napoleonics are great as are the WSS figures!
