Well after finishing some Austrians i decided i should finish off my first attempt at my French infantry there are parts really like and others that i'm not so happy about, after painting metal for so long I think i'll hav to do a lot better when it comes to the skin, the detail is different to apint but another batch or two and i think well have it let me know what you think

This weeks been a bit crazy I've had a bit of the flu so not feeling so well, I have managed to do a bit of work but its not been as much fun as normal part of what I've been working on is these British infantry and some Kings German sharp shooters they still need a highlight on the skin tone and then based but they are well on there way. I've also been working on another two Battalions of 28mm infantry and another wargames Illustrated diorama so there will hopefully be some more work to view in the next few days or so.

Well I finally did it I started my french 28mm Napoleonic army But not with metals i think i will head down that road a little later when i am satisfied that i've got the painting right. here's a couple of shots of where i'm at for this week still a lot to go yet. I think i'll do an extra light shade of skin. I'm having fun thats for sure but i think as i do more i'll improve. The perry plastics are a much finer model to paint than the front rank but in the end should come out very nice.
The second batch is underway but even more work to be done and thanks to Chirs the next box arrived glued which i have now based ready to undercoat.

Most of my work is done here in good old New Zealand but i have done a bit of overseas work these are a few figures that i am sending off to Spain to see whether my work is up to standard. Will be interesting to see what comments come back. These figures come from the AB Napoleonic range they are very nice figures to paint with great detail

I'm looking to sell my Napoleonic French army all the figures are AB figures they are painted to a high standard, but not to the standard i now paint so the price will indicate this. The main difference is that i paint the faces completely different now, and i adda third layer to the blue, some of the units do have a higher standard on the skin tones the elite battalions and the Guards as you will see in there pictures. I really would preffer to sell them within New Zealand for shipping purposes.
The army seems to be selling in bits so if there is something you want let me know
