I've found it really hard to get to the painting table this week I've done a lot on my French infantry ( they are almost done and i'll post pics when they are) the weather has been real bad here even a bit of snow this afternoon so the weekend has been one big painting session i haven't quite finished and have now put the brushes down for the night but I'm about 90% finished

I finished these guys last night once again while my wife watched the netball, just means i get a few extra hours painting each night this past week I was quite happy with the way they turned out funny thing about old glory figures is they look terrible before painting but can really surprise once you start.

last night my wife sat down to watch some netball so i thought why not paint a couple of figures up so here they are there are still a few bits to do yet like i forgot to do rupperts pants oh well, these are a small part of a trade that i did with a friend of mine Richard i think the infantry figure is foundry not sure though. I'm working on a bunch of Old glory figures and a fewe other things so will update you on those later.
I think i'll put some gold lines in the creases of the sleeves and pants on this guy what do you think.

Well here we are again this week I've finished off my French Cuirassiers I'm not all that happy with then really even though they look better than the picture show, but i did make a few basic mistakes firstly i glued the riders into their saddles before painting but the detail is so fine that i found it hard to paint and i'm not happy with the way the faces turned out later on i hope to replace them with metals so they will do until then.
