I love it when a plan comes together...

At last the majority of my four Garde Chasseur a Pied battalions are substantially painted and on their bases.  There are almost a company's worth of them.  Most were originally painted by Shaun Duncan, some by Dave? and a few, from scratch, by me.  I've added a lot of detailing, though, and most recently mud-splashes a la Burkhard (very easy, very effective, highly recommended).

I still have to paint 5 mounted officers, new standards, and ideally a drum major and some drummers.  The basing is going to take a couple of weeks, and I need them finished by the month-end.  Gulp.


  1. Not looking too shabby there, BRB!


  2. Looking good! Nice to see them en masse. Dean

  3. Looking real good!

    Glad my mud technique worked out for you, too!

    Have a nice weekend!

  4. Thanks chaps; I'm very happy with them. Very pleased with the mud, Burkhard, looks great on a greatcoat.

    I am rather looking forward to painting something different, now, though...
