Well the 2nd Annual Analogue Hobbies painting comp has started and I have been stuck painting the house. Anyway tonight we made our way up to my parents to drop off some snow shovels and popped into my brothers on the way home. The Davids have been busy painting and I wanted to get some pics.
Seems like a long time ago now when David and I got back into Naps and the 1st show we went to was the Falkirk wargames show. There was a guy selling off all his unpainted OG 15's (large packs of roughly 100). David was cautious as he wasn't sure how long the phase would last but I still bought a stack.
This young guard battalion was the 1st figures I painted from the haul. David decided on French so I chose to go for Prussians (and later russians) so my OG young guard were put to the back of the line.
Over the last few years young David has come through as a cracking figure painter and he like his dad has started doing French (as well as space marines, 15mm and 20mm WW2 and LotR). recently he was asking about the young guard and I passed onto him the remaining 2 battalions (as well as 3 battalions of middle guard so watch this space).
It is great to see the young guard finally finished and ready to join David's French army (especially as they don't count as guard!!!).
The flags come from "Flags for the Lads" French 1812 range and are excellent.
Lets hope I can get some of my own stash of lead finished soon.
