Phew, its a scorcher today and my little painting corner in the back room has become a welcome sunny place to sit and escape the crowds who have arrived in the village to spend the day on the beach. My Perry order did indeed turn up yesterday and some were undercoated within an hour! I chose to start with the 3 French generals of Division, beautiful little castings. I dont know why the blue always appears lighter in the pics than it actually is but here's some shots of them at about midway. Also a shot of the KGL battalion just awaiting a command stand.
I'll do both the French and British generals packs first, then bang into loads more French line infantry. Next weeks order will be for some metal guns and crews.
Just started reading Napoleons Marshals, I've had this book for several years at least but never got round to reading it before, a very good read so far.
