Work Bench Update

My Perry Napoleonic Russian reinforcements have arrived. Started on the artillery - two 12 pounders, and a couple of unicorn mortars. Stained with Minwax - awaiting highlight and basing.

Prior to the staining, with a very basic block paint job.
I also started on a box of Victrix Greek Mercenary Hoplites - a trade I had made a couple of days ago with a local buddy. I usually don't work on different projects simultaneously, but I didn't think the Perry order was going to arrive so soon - only took about a week and a half to arrive. Added a few Samnite and Macedonians heads.
Just a quick update to let you all know what I'm currently working on. Thanks for checking out the blog and best wishes to you all!

    1. Thank you, Keith. These actually paint up pretty fast - at least for gaming standard. Warm regards, Dean

  3. I know I’ve said it time and again, but how on earth do you manage to churn them out so fast and so good?

    1. Lol! Thank you very much for the kind words, Mike. I have to the Minwax really helps for the final stages of picking out details and highlights. In this case, Russian uniforms are easier to paint than French or British. Oh, and I don't paint eyes - that would not be worth the effort. Warmest regards, Dean

  4. Tremendous focus Dean putting some of us to shame. All these Napoleonics has been challenging for my stability, a long held itch just won’t go away !

    1. Thanks, Matt! For what it's worth, I find Russian uniforms (at least the foot), much more enjoyable to paint than French or British - the latter two have more details to paint (far more piping and laces). Warmest regards, Dean
