Pick & Mix (1)!

With the Paint What You Got challenge running over January and February I finished off quite a few bits and pieces that had been sitting around for a while. Unfortunately I slowed down a bit nearer the end of February while I prepared flags for some of the figures (you can see them under way here) and didn’t get them finished for the end of the month. I then decided to work on another half dozen related figures (including cavalry and an extra flag) that I’ve now finished, but there was a further delay while I waited for a calm day to get the varnishing done!

So, the picture above shows all the latest finished figures, which are a bit of a mixed selection from seven armies. There are 17 of them but when you include the horses and the flags I reckoned the effort spent painting them was closer to that for 23 figures (even though one of them was already painted and only needed a replacement flag).

Rather than turn this into a long, tedious post describing these figures I’ve decided to write three, shorter posts to follow this one, the intention being to show the figures featured above integrated into their parent units. However if there is a massive clamouring for a long, tedious post, I could always consider that!



  1. I’m clamoring for a long and tedious post! Dickens got paid by the word (or so they say) and so I expect nothing less here πŸ˜‰ In all seriousness, I look forward to learning more about these minis as you get the write ups done!

    • Thanks Jeff! πŸ™‚ I was thinking I might find it heavy going writing it up as one post, never mind people having to read it! The figures sort of split into three groups and my plan was to then show the newly painted figures as part of their proper units. It was bad enough having to dig out all of the different boxes that the parent units are in! πŸ˜‰
