Hurrah, Boys, Hurrah

At last something new to post! I have been very busy at work lately plus I have been painting a lot of plastic Napoleonic figures for a friend so my own personal figure output has dropped massively. I could have finished some more Airfix Waterloo figures but decided a short break from all those shakos and plumes was in order. What could be more suitable than some boys in blue?

Newline Designs 20mm ACW
 I must admit to having taken advantage of the recent Newline Designs sale and bagged myself a few hundred figures from their various 20mm ranges. All things considered the excellent quality of the sculpting vs the very reasonable pricing (even without the sales discount!) makes Newline a very attractive proposition. Plus they are in "Gods Own Scale".

Flags are GMB from their 15mm range.
I have some Rebs up next with some Zulu's after that; until then I hope you like my latest output which I think is best appreciated while humming "The Battle Cry of Freedom".

A Couple of Old Pictures

It has been a little quiet on the painting front but I did manage to retrieve some old pictures from (more than a few) years back:

Newline French Infantry in Greatcoat FR23 Refs

All figures from the excellent Newline Designs 20mm Napoleonic range. All figures now in the collections of other wargamers!

Newline French Dragoons FR11 Refs
I have started some more Newline Designs 20mm ACW figures which are coming on quite nicely. They will be my next proper post next week but for now please settle for a little nostalgia from the days when my figure output was much, much higher!
