I only had 23 to paint, trying to match the already painted one that was here. That was all, just 23 figures. Doesn't sound like a lot does it, but they nearly broke me. Bloody tartan, stupid patterned socks, damnable bonnets! I hates them I does. I thought they were bad in 15mm but I was wrong.
Anyway, here they are in all their misery.
I also cracked on with some basing of other figures that I have had here for a while. I believe this lot are French Tirallieurs Grenadiers of the Young Guard, but don't quote me on that. Again there are 24 of them, but I just based these ones as they were painted when I got them.
As were these 20 Austrian infantry. So I have based these up as well.
Other news is I have been to my first show of 2015. Four of the Chuckadice crew made the trip up to Crusade in Penarth and a fine time was had. Thanks to Nathan for driving us up
Monday night was spent fighting off a Dervish horde in Nathan's Sudan campaign. Colonel Pingers was in charge, ineptly assisted by Major Blunder (aka me). Despite Nathan's best efforts the Brits managed to hold off the Dervish masses and seized the town, so things are looking better for the Empire this week. Hopefully Nathan will put a report on his blog at some point.
I have also cracked on with some Vietnam period armour, but it's not quite finished yet so no pictures just yet. Tomorrow night will mostly be spent shouting at the TV as the 6 Nations kicks off in Cardiff. Catch you all later, I am off now.
