Thanks to my close encounter with Covid over the past several days I've not been able to reach my goal of finishing this unit while Phil was away, in fact for most of the time I was too poorly to even contemplate painting! But, health improves and things look more promising and so the brushes have been wielded once again, albeit in very truncated sessions at times. While one more base of three figures remains to be processed, here are the bases I've completed to date ~
To recap: the figures are from Redoubt Enterprises' F&IW range; the bases from Warbases; and the ground texture from the Woodlands Scenics range of railway ballast (in three grades) with the addition of rocks from the same range. All are washed over with Games Workshop's Steel Legion Drab, formerly known as Graveyard Earth, before the static grass and tufts are added.
When these are finished I have some Galloping Major Miniatures next in the queue in the shape of several bases of First Nations warriors providing some Stockbridge tribes figures to ally with the British. When I complete these we will try a game I think to see how Black Powder 2 shapes up to giving us the sort of game outcomes we want. As they say, more as and when.
Back in the saddle, glad you are recovering, oh, and nice troops.ReplyDelete
Slow progress I'm afraid George.Delete
Glad you are feeling better - figures look great but I am particularly impressed by the basing (gives a nice 'wilderness' feel).ReplyDelete
Thank you on both counts Phil.Delete
Fine figuring and basing, you are on the mend indeed!ReplyDelete
Slowly, Phil, slowly.Delete
Nicely done David and glad you are on the mend 👍ReplyDelete
Thank you Matt.Delete
Nice work! You probably won't want flags for them but, if you do, I have posted some free ones here: https://nba-sywtemplates.blogspot.com/2020/05/flags-of-french-compagnies-franches-de.html They are certainly very attractive flags! :-) Good luck with the recovery from Covid too.ReplyDelete
Thanks David. I have already printed flags but need figures!Delete
Good to see you getting back on your feet David and the marines look great.ReplyDelete
Many thanks for the good wishes Christopher.Delete
