I am trying to stick with a disciplined painting schedule and have been working on this unit for a steady hour (minimum) a day. They still lack flags and groundwork but they are otherwise completed. They can be used as either Spanish or French line troops with a simple swap of flags.
As always comments, curses and jeering are welcomed....
I find it harder to paint the simple gray uniform than the blue jackets of the colonial troops
I decided that the only way I was going to make headway on this project was to sit down and work for a solid hour on it at least five days a week. At first it seemed a daunting task. As I got used to the routine I began to look forward to the quiet period of time painting miniatures. After a week I managed to get one battalion finished, the (almost) finished models can be seen below, they only require matte finish and flags to be complete. Just eleven more to go!
