I'm sorry for the lack of posts, its been a busy wee while in our lives with home, work and the good weather have all been getting in the way of painting. I haven't been idle though. I spent a good while working on Von Blucher's guard chasseurs enlarging them to a 40 man unit however I have taken a break from them for the moment. I had an unfinished landwehr battalion waiting in the wings and decided to get them finished off a couple of figures at a time.
Mr Bartons Prussian landwehr are some of my favourite figures as there are so many poses and fortunately were a lot of fun to paint as you need a load of them for late 1813-15 battles!
I converted a zimmerman for the battalion from pictures in Stephen Summerfelds Prussian landwehr book (brilliant book!!!) and I'm really chuffed how he came out.
As best I can I try to add 1 character figure into each base be it a drummer, officer or a cheering chap. I feel it really gives yer battalions life.
The shades don't appear well in the pics but you get the general idea. Sorry about the iffy pic quality!!!
My Silesian landwehr so far. I know progress is slow however I can promise a couple more posts this month.
I hope everyone is well and enjoying the summer!!!
