Painting at last

Well as promised in my last post I thought I would post some pictures of some of the figures that I have manged to get painting this year. First up is a small group of Dwarf warriors that actually inspired me to get painting again. 1 is from the Citadel Norse Dwarfs range and the other 5 are from the original plastic regiment set that GW brought out in the late 80's.

Sorry it's not the best picture as I took it with my mobile and the light seemed to reflect badly of the metallic areas. I also need to locate some shield s for these guys. So far I have found 2 of the originals, just 3 more need so will probably end up browsing EBay.

Next up is a unit of Austrian Jaegers for my Napoleonic collection. These figures are all from Warmodelling. In the end they didn't paint up to bad despite my misgivings while painting them

I also manged to finish off the 2 battalions of infantry to add towards my Friedlingen project. The figures are all from the Dixon Miniatures range and are lovely figures to paint. They are the Baden-Durlach and Reischach battalions.





This just leaves 2 infantry battalions and a regiment of Dragoons to complete the Imperialists for Friedlingen. I can then concentrate on finishing off the French figures. As i was in the mood for WSS I have arranged a club game for Thursday night using the Black Powder rules. I will post reports as the battle progresses. it sees my Imperialist and Saxons facing off.
