Finally some action on the painting desk

Its been a real grind to get these 28mm WSS figures done over the last week. I have had the time but not the motivation to complete them but as of last night they are now based and just need to final finish and flocking.

So Barry's unit is almost complete and then I can finish the Spanish. Warlord Games have also advised the WSS figures will be back in production soon so I plan to get three more boxes for the French troops I need and that should round off the force quite nicely.

I also picked up some Mantic Elf Cavalry to be the mounted aspect of my Elven army (90% unpainted as per usual). I really like the horse but the rider is less pleasing to the eye.

Great work Paul, on both of them. WSS such a nice looking period :)

Coming along, Paul! A fine-looking unit. Meanwhile I am pretty far along 6 out of 7 of my infantry units, so far, and one of them is finished but for proper basing and the missing swords on half the figures. I probably ought to have done what you have and built the Grenadiers into each regiment, instead of making them into a separate unit. Too bad: I'll stick with my plan. I've made a little bit of a start on them.

Not much progress on the Cavalry yet, but have decided which regiments the heavies are going to be. The dragoons will probably have red coats, just to add extra colour to the who she-bang.

It's all very slow going, but I have generally added a lick of paint onto something every night for the last few weeks or so...

Thanks for the comments.

I think having long days at the office are contributing to me unwillingness to sit at the desk and paint. Now I am on a new (enforced) regime of time management and excerise I now have the free time and things are looking up. Unfortunately I have been caught up playing computer games and sitting on my backside in the evenings.

I painted a test French figure, white coast, blue facings and red trousers and it really has me eager to get stuck into the rest of them. That white spray paint is also a brilliant tool in making quick progress.
