Saxon Guard Project 1

Sorry for the lack of posts, I've been having work done around the house, a new tiled roof and boiler fitted. Unfortunately it didn't all go smoothly so the hobbying side of life slowed down a good bit.

Thankfully fingers crossed I can now get back to life and painting. I've been working on the Saxon Guard battalion I converted and I'm at the half way point.

These guys are for 1813, there is some debate around what headgear they wore in battle. I've gone with bearskins, it would have been far easier with shakos however I took Kawe of Westfakia Miniatures advice and went with the head swaps.

So 16 down, 16 to go. They have been a lot of fun so far. The pics aren't great as I did them with my samsung phone and the quality is far to good. Makes the finish look very rough.

Ok I hope everyone is enjoying our hobby and pushing on with their projects. Happy wargaming!!!
