I've only been able to paint figures this month. Like everyone else & that 'Waterloo' thing..lol Napoleonics are the fashion this season & I've built on our existing Peninsular 15mm armies. Some stunning purchases & new paint jobs to existing figures. I visited the Durham Wargames Show back in June & managed to pick up a load of figures at the Bring n Buy. The British Infantry below were one spiffing purchase. Now based up & given the 'colours', they are now ready for the field. Slightly bigger than 15mm, so they will make fine additions as Guards.
Apart from the Guards & Westphalians below, the rest are July paint jobs. All are from the 'spare lead mountain'. As per usual, what started as a few figures soon became many. Currently there are 50 French Artillerymen on the painting table. I've been looking at the DBN rules & decided on a few changes. In DBN the standard army is on the grand scale. One element being one Brigade. I'm now aiming on one element being one Battalion size, so a standard army will be about a Division size. Oh no, I've started another project. Now to get that 'Are we there yet?' ditty out of my head.....
