As I mentioned in a previous post my nephew David and I had a painting session to get his polish uhlans on the go, well David also brought down a couple of recently finished items for me to photograph.
This is David's 2nd Swiss battalion painted and they are excellent. David's been refining his painting style recently switching over to the foundry triad paints, buying a couple of napoleonic box sets tinkering here and there and he can really see the improvement.
David's moving away from letting the black show through as we used to do for speed and moving into a whole new area of painting.
You got to love the Swiss! When flicking through my uniforms of the Russian campaign god knows how many years ago I had wee day dreams of doing Swiss, Croats, Wurtemburgers etc . . . Well young David is actually ticking these boxes that I never did!
Plus David is adding to his French command bases a wee bit at a time to. . .
Then David sent me a text with this attached, Stunning!!!! David's test figure for another of those "would love to own" units for Russia . . . Croats are on the march!
I'll share more as David puts his army together (and not to be undone my brother David has been working on Waterloo Brits! I'll post pics soon!)
