My final batch of 'fine fellows' is finished!

I have finally finished renovating, varnishing, and basing the British figures in my Napoleonic collection. They comprise of a second unit of Horse Guards, a third unit of Light Dragoons, and three Mounted officers.



One of the latter is a slightly repainted model of the Duke of Wellington. I did this so that I can use the figure to represent a different officer.

The next thing that I want to do before I begin work on the additional French figures in my collection is to organise my British Army into Divisions and Brigades.

      Thanks! I might take a short break before sorting the British figures into formations ... and then I hope to start work on the French, of which there are quite a few!

      All the best,

      Bob

    1. Kev,

      Thanks! They look even more impressive when seen en masse.

      Hopefully I will be able to organise the British units into formations over the weekend, and when I do I will certainly write an illustrated blog entry about them.

      All the best,

      Bob

    1. Stryker,

      Wait till I've organised them into formations and you see the entire British Army in one blog entry ... then you will be impressed ... I hope!

      All the best,

    1. Gonsalvo,

      Thanks! I wish I could claim the kudos for doing that bit of the painting, but I can't. All I did was to renovate pre-painted figures.

      All the best,

      Bob

  6. Well done. Should be lots of time to hold a Ball before the French get there.

      Thanks! Hopefully the French won't leave it too long before they begin to appear.
