With a bit of time on my hands during holidays, I was able to finish off the 3rd commission from Spiro at Pants of War, some AWI French; destined for Black Powder.
The 20 year old figures from Italeri certainly suit the French Ordnance colours from 1779, and the Warflag flags just keep on giving - but the drummers got their 'toy drums' sliced off and replaced with Italeri American drums as per the previous unit.
Regiment SoissonoisAcorn Models, to pick up some Vallejo paints (Years ago, GW used to produce the perfect paint, which I'd bought, let dry up, and now their layering system just doesn't have the same brightness - I want a dollop of paint highlight at this scale, not hours of layering). But Scarlet Blood + Squid Pink + a small dollop of Citadel Xereus Purple for darkening, has done the trick.
Regiment Royal Duexponts
Unfortunately it seems the officer got a blast of gunpowder in the face, as his detail is missing, but the colouring is just superb.
There is a real risk here that a wargamer will actually finish his lead/plastic mountain for a given period.
Will have to wait until January to pick up the last of the French from Spiro and in the meantime, I've prepped up the last three units of Germans for the collection.
