Hello and a happy Easter to everyone! this weekend my 1 in 3 fell lucky and I landed with Easter weekend off. Mai and I have been busy since Friday and will be again tomorrow so today Mai allowed me a free day. Young David and I arranged a long overdue painting session and late last night I cleared an area for us to get started, here is a wee video of our finished efforts
and some pics below:
David decided to continue from where he left off last time cracking on with his Vistula lancers finishing 5 more with only the mounted officer to go.
David says the figures are not as sharp in detail as the later AB guard lancer figures he has on the go however he's managing to give them a good paint job, my personal favourite is the trumpeter.
I battered on with my 3rd battalion for the 6th Silesian landwehr. I had already done the base shades on a good number of them so I had a decent head start and managed to get 8 finished today. sorry for the pics quality!
The troops are still to be varnished but I think you can see them coming together. The detail around the neck and collar on the above figures was pretty rough in areas and was tricky to paint.
Shades haven't came out great in the pics again but again I think you can see where they are heading.
This figure pose seems to have a problem on his left eye so in each battalion these guys end up wearing a bloody bandage.
And another group of 4 that I took to a good point the other night. About half an hours work and they will be finished. So that's 8 finished and ready to be varnished and 4 very close to being finished.
So only 8 to go and the battalion is finished . . . yes!!!
We had a great day chewing the fat, bouncing painting ideas around, talking naps and other wargames stuff. Not sure when we'll get another one in with my daft schedule so we enjoyed it when we got the chance.
