I'm quite pleased with the way they've turned out, even with the trouble I had early on. I think I've learned a bit from this lot that will make painting the second battalion smoother sailing, eg. test your varnish shade before you apply it to a figure and to give the spray varnish nozzle a good clean before squirting it anywhere near a figure unless you're looking for the 'marching through a blizzard' look!
This is the first half of my entry for La Bricole's first painting competition. I'm painting the 1st and 2nd Italian line regiments and this is the 1st regiment finished. Now to start on the 2nd with their red facings.
They'll get their christening this Friday and I'm expecting them to be ganged up on by Tim's Peninsula forces of KGL, Portuguese and Spaniards.
