Painting Update

Well, it's been a while since my last post.  As I'm still painting away on the troops I need for our Historicon project I thought I'd share some photos of the recently completed units.  So, enough with words, on to the photos.  All flags are from GMB.  The Jager's and Line Infantry are from Front Rank.  The dismounted Dragoons are from Steve Barber Miniatures (more on Steve Barber figures in a future post).

First up is the 6th Jager Regiment.  For this Regiment I tried to go for more of a campaign look.  I'm not sure I really pulled it off, but I think over time I can get the figure selection right.  (sounds like an excuse to have to paint more figures).  Click on the figures to enlarge.

I seem to have over done the 'magic wash' on some of the pants.  My recipe for magic wash is Future floor wax, with a drop or two of light grey paint added.

I've posted these before but thought I'd post again now that they are based.  I ended up basing them on my 'standard' infantry bases

I still have a few more Napoleonic units I need to finish for Historicon which I hope to post soon, (whenever my next post may be).  Also, we seem to be in the midst of a Science Fiction pandemic here, so the next post may include some science fiction as well.

So much lead, so little time.
