I tried to make the trousers look muddy - not sure if it worked.

Detail of the rear

Just noticed the ink stain on the officer - bugger

Nice figures but glad they are done.

January painting totals and Six Nations

Some truly rubbish pic's of the French and Bavarian artillery I painted in January. Will take some new pic's soon. All figures are by the Foundry and painted on a grey undercoat.
Total for Jan was:
6 Bavarian guns
24 Bavarian crew
1 French howitzer
6 French crew
36 French light infantry
I am currently 2/3rds of the way through 36 Prussian (Calpe) reservists in British rifles uniforms.
Six Nations: Wales yet to announce side and a crisis at scrum half (where are my boots?) and England have picked their best team in years. Me worried? Yep.
My tip for the top is.................England believe it or not. If they beat Wales they'll do well.
Ireland are overrated (and were very lucky in quite a few games last year - England and Wales especially), France could win every game or get hammered.
Scotland are still rubbish but might sneak the odd win and lets hope Italy ( as long as they dont do it against Wales) win the odd game.
1. England
2. France
3. Wales
4. Ireland
5. Scotland
6. Italy
My record as a punidit is appalling so dont expect the table to look anything like that an the end!
The six nations will afffect my painting as there will be a fair amount of boozing and rugby watching going on!
