BP Challenge Prep

Been missing for a while tinkering with Uboats and tanks however for the next 3 months I'll be taking part in another YouTube challenge. A few of the guys will be putting together a Black Powder Painting Challenge to try and get a few things ticked off before the end of the year.

I'm sure my figures will be used for Black Powder at some point so I think it's fine for them to be added into the challenge.

I'll be hoping to get my East Prussian National Kavalry finished as they have sat around for far to long since I converted them, 24 to do. Winters on its way as my black undercoat didn't cover the metal so well?

Also a few Russian command bases using Sho Boki's range with the odd AB thrown in. I added a little green stuff in areas to the ADC's to give them a little more body.

And another command base to be finished off although Prussian this time.

This one is crazy Platen's trumpeter bashing a polish uhlan over the head at the battle of Mockern 1813.

That's all from me at the moment, hope everyone is getting into their painting and enjoying the rugby World Cup!

Good luck with the challenge, always great for us spectators to see some new eye candy. Love that last little base with the trumpeter.
