My enforced Stay off work
I suppose one good thing by being generally off colour,is that you can finish some projects that were on the back burner.
Mine was this battalion of Minden French. I have several half completed units of these lovely figures,but I just find them difficult to paint. I think basically its because they deserve such a good paint job,and I dont think I have that skill.
Their faces are well done and deserve a 'Saxon Dog' finish,however I know that I just havent got that in me,anyway they are finished and ready to go,which is the main thing.
I tend to exagerate my flags [ thats really that I like BIG flags] and being the cheapscape I am I also used only one drummer per unit.
I do like them now that I heve finished it,but I still cant find a quick but accurate way to paint white.
