I'm keeping busy on the commission painting front and having finished off the last of Old John's most recent box I'm straight into painting more infantry for Tony. I mentioned two battalions I think recently but there were actually three battalions in the box, I had not spotted the bottom layer! These are all 18 figure battalions each with a mounted officer as usual and all French War of The Spanish Succession of course and lovely crisp Les Higgins (PMD) figures. Alongside I continue to add more Epic bases, most recently British Light Dragoons and French Chasseur a Cheval. Today I am excitedly waiting for the postman to bring me the Epic British and French Generals packs, each containing five personality figures made in the warlord resin, the facial detail of these figures is superb.
As always Old John's figures are 20mm metal and plastic and you see below:
- 6 metal Danish Cuirassiers
- 4 French Dragoons (Strelets)
- 4 Catalonian Grenadiers (Minairon)
- 4 Catalonian 'Mountain Men' (Minairon)
- 4 assorted metal characters.
