If you have seen any of my recent posts you may have spotted that I'm taking part in a painting challenge. I'm chuffed to say I've been making good progress on the figures I have been working on. In the last post I showed a Silesian landwehr battalion plus some skirmishers I managed to complete and through the end of the month I managed to catch up with an East Prussian grenadier battalion that I had started a good while back so now I'm onto Silesian grenadiers.
I am continuing to make youtube vids as a record of my progress through the MMM challenge as it only takes a few minutes.
So this is my progress so far, East Prussians need a little work on some of the figures plus the bases need completed, I have made a steady start on the Silesians and since this picture I have now pretty much completed half of the battalion. A little work is still needed on the Crazy Platen command base then it will be ticked off however for the moment I'm concentrating on getting the troops painted and I'll do all the basing together at the end of the month (famous last words!)
My pictures aren't great with the dark shades however you can get an idea of how they are coming together.
I have been messing about with the highlights of the blues and still need to give the figures a couple of matt varnish coats.
Thanks a million to the guys over on the MMM group, the chats have been a great help in keeping my focus especially when I've been knackered after work. Also we attended the Falkirk Wargames Club show on 7th May, Carronade. It was a great show with plenty of traders and games on show and I'll post up a wee vid plus pics soon.
Hope everyone is enjoying the good weather yet still getting some painting and gaming in
