On The Work Bench

Hello all,
just a couple of photos of a unit I am working on, ab French Napoleonic in greatcoats the sharp eyed will notice the colour bearer is missing and the fanion bearer has not had the fanion is not painted the client will sort that one out, and he dos a very good job of replacing the pole for the colour so that figure is being painted with the next battalion . The client will be baseing these as well .
  I have painted the greatcoats mainly in grey (different shades) with some brown and oat meal coloured coats also of different shades . The shako covers also mainly in black (again to aid a uniform look) have also a mix of colours .
Again mr Barton has put a variety of details into the sculpts with shoes, sausage, cheese, jackets etc these really show a battalion on the march . The figures did have moldline issues and there was lumps of metal around the musket butts and cartridge boxes . These have been a pain to deal with but to be fair I have not had this problem with other regiments so far .
  So thanks for stopping bye I have two more of the same units to complete and I will put some work in progress shots as I go . I hope you are progressing with your painting . Sorry for the poor photos they are on the work bench, the flesh looks better, well in the flesh so to speak !
All the best........
