I finished a total of 21 minis. The first nineteen are Perry Plastic French Infantry. I think the purple pom poms on the right might be too dark.
Here they are looking at the woods.
|One guy is missing a backpack.|
Speaking of backpacks, I wish there were a few less backpacks with spare shoes tied on the back. When the French retreat, my ill-shod Prussian Landwehr run off the table after them. Unless you're playing Regiment of Foote, having your troops run off the table is usually a bad thing.
Because I have hundreds of these French to paint, I am doing them in batches of three or less poses.
Here's a side shot, with the painful eyesore missing backpack. I have no backpacks to spare; one poor soldier will forever be woefully unprepared to make camp.
To end on a dull note, the last two minis aren't that exciting. The first is an Old Glory British Rocket crewman. Years ago, an Old Glory British Rocket pack order came with an extra mini and he was never painted.
The abysmal looking green thing is a mini from the old Doom boardgame. I wanted him to look like he was one of those radioactive ghouls, called glowing ones, from the Fallout video games.
If you squint or the photo is blurry, he sort of looks glowy.
Love and Kisses,
