Hello Dearest Humans,
Today I have more minis painted. When a couple local gamers decided to finally try Sharp Practice, I realized I did not have very many single based French. We needed French, so I painted some.
First are some plastic Perry voltigeurs. They were a pleasure to paint.
I love repainting other peoples minis; it's as if the primer is my painting guide. I did not repaint these used Heritage minis. I was happy with just getting them off their huge washers (seen below). I prefer square bases, as they're easier to form up into tighter units and they take up less shelf space.

Highlight of the post.
A couple light French troops from Foundry. I don't know why I painted them, they're the only two I have.
Here's the comparison pic that the world has been clamoring for. Front Rank (once again probably), Perry, Heritage.

While painting and re-basing French, I was distracted by something shiny. When I awoke from my wandering, I realized that I had painted a GW flagellant. I think he's actually for the Mordhiem game, but he'll fit in just fine with the rest of my crazed religious zealots.

Here is a Infantry Support Platform speeder my Imperial Guard models stole from the Empire. After beheading the previous soulless owners (clones) the Imperial Guard motor pool guys applied a quick paint job to hide the theft.
Here's what it use to look like, complete with bent gun barrels.

Here's a picture comparing it to other speeders. I don't know why I didn't use guard model head with eye protection. They're going to have a hard time seeing if they drive very fast. I will keep them on a shelf separate from the Guard Ground Safety Monitor or I'll probably have to fill out some hazard identification reports.

Here's a picture of their rear ends.

Till next time, I have no idea what I'll paint.
