Still Banging Away.

On my sister blog,I have photographed a couple of units that I painted over December/January.
I also managed to re paint a further unit of Hinchliffe Prussian Grenadiers,which I use in my Hessian army.
 These are still a very fine figure in my opinion,and are a pleasure to paint, especially now that Ian Hinds has a 20% offer on all the Hinchliffe ranges.

No doubt someone will point out that usually, amalgamated  grenadiers didn't have standards, but, I like flags,and I'm sorry but in my opinion they look better with a flag.  One of my other weaknesses is,command figures and general ephemera. This figure contains a commander that I picked up off E Bay,unpainted,with a  Hinchliffe X Range fusilier to stand guard for him.
I haven't done the flocking yet on the infantry,as I was in a rush to photograph them.

 I always wonder about Blogs. It seems some blogs take over a wargamers life,and the posts become more important than the subject, ie. you talk more about wargaming and actually do less in the hobby.
However I have found that running two blogs has actually inspired me to crack on with my painting, especially when I can see other wargamers painting efforts,its very inspirational.

  1. Very nice! And I like especially the X-rane figure and mounted commander. Just might need to add a unit of those grenadiers by Hinchliffe to my own collection at some point too.

    1. Evening Stokes,
      I would recommend that you order before the end of January and you get an additional 20% off the figure price,which is already pretty low.
      Thanks Robbie.
