Very happy with these - at least I was until I took pics. What appear to be marvellous painted figs to my naked eye look like they've been painted by a lunatic holding a wallpaper brush with his feet when photographed up close. I now believe that all the other painters out there, the pro ones, use a combination of microscopes and black magic. Anyway, here are a new company of the 40th Foot, one of the most battle-hardened, experienced units (from any side) at Waterloo.
I've been cutting down on the mixing of Victrix/Perrys. For some regiments I shall continue blending the two together, others will be exclusively one or the other. Most of Pack's Brigade are by Victrix, for example. The 4th and 40th from Lambert's brigade from now on will be predominantly Perry.
The front rank of this company, Perry kneeling metals, arrived this morning and I shall be beginning them today.
I got hit by a car yesterday and was very lucky to get away with just a broken nose and a headache (the car came off worse, I knew all those bacon sandwiches would see me in good stead at some point). Anyway, I'm not going to return to work until Monday so this gives me two whole days of painting! Every cloud...
