First up is a French Foot Battery in full dress. This unit will serve as Division Artillery, attached to my Brigade of French troops. For the size of forces I have in mind, I'll only need 2 or 3 batteries for a proper game so by that logic I should paint approximately 4 batteries :)
|They painted up easily enough.
|dark blue undercoat followed by light blue highlighting. There was too much facial hair on the figures to mess around with shading.
|I have to confess - most of them were already painted. I purchased them on ebay years ago. I rebased them for Black Powder.
|A stand I painted and snuck into the line.
|2 Battalions. Still need flock but at least they're done! I have about 2 more British Battalions to base. My pre-painted French are all wearing bicornes but I might base at least a battalion of them just to fill out the ranks!
In other news, my Flames of War 6mm troopers are doing well. I finished another Soviet T-34 company and am ready to start the infantry company next. My German Panzer Kompanie is almost all finished save for the HQs element of the infantry platoon! I do believe we are almost ready for a proper 6mm game, save for the Hummels, Soviet Artillery, and aircraft!!
