I've been using my spare time to bump away at the 2nd battalion and have finally gotten it stuck down on its base with sand added so I just need to finish the basing off now.
Here is a wee video I made about the WIP:
Or if you prefer some pics
As you will know if you follow my blog I cleaned the figures up and sent them over to Dan Dunbar and Dan painted them up for me. I have used Dans painting as a base coat and have added in highlights and finer details like buttons, cap edging plus different hair colour and feel they are now my own figures.
Still a wee bit of work to do on the bases and I'll tidy up any areas that I think need it before the final varnish coat.
The officer in the back rank here was a special AB command figure with a flag pole, I've converted him into a regular Landwehr officer taking removing his guard star, drilling his hand and added a sword plus I switched his head for a Landwehr head.
I intended to use the converted officer for the main command base however I was really happy how the officer above came out so I used him instead. I'm happy with the shading on the blues, unfortunately my photos don't pick it up so well.
I'll be taking a break from Landwehr as Sho has finished casting his Leib Garde Cossacks!!! And mine are in the post so hopefully that will be my next project . . . happy Wargaming!!!
