Been a quiet week on the painting front. I have completed the 4 metal command figures for the KGL battalion (just need to finish the basing) and now I'm starting on the 2nd Old Guard Battalion, just the first washes on so far. I will only paint the 2 x 16 figure battalions for the Guard but I hope to be able to put together a few skirmisher stands for them from my bits and pieces box later.
I'm still thinking about what I want to paint next! I'm torn between an 8 figure metal British heavy dragoon unit OR a British /KGL Hussar unit using that incredible Perry plastic box set! I know they are French but the vast choice of parts would make it easy to do such a unit. I know that I was moaning about plastic figures recently but in my opinion the Perry plastics are way superior to the Victrix in terms of fine detail and moulding and I have long wanted to paint a Hussar unit! I'll make up my mind as I paint the rest of the Old Guard Grenadiers.
Total figures now painted is 222 since the beginning of the year.
