After nearly three full months of painting Russians, both Crimean and Napoleonic, I have gone back to the Crimean War British Army.
Last week I received a parcel of Great War Miniatures British, encompassing the first couple of regiments of the Light Brigade, a brigade of three battalions of infantry, six command figures, including Cathcart, Lucan and Cardigan, and then to round out the order, another box of Perry Russian Napoleonic Infantry.
First completed was the 17th Lancer Regiment.
Followed by Cardigan...
and Lucan...who still has to be based.
Then came the 20th Regiment of Foot.
And finally General Cathcart and a staff officer, who are waiting for grass to grow around them.
Next to paint are the 21st, 63rd Foot, the 11th Hussars and two brigadiers. Then it will be back to Russians and the box of Perry figures will finish off two more battalions.
Next month's task will be the remaining three regiments of the Light Brigade, some artillery and then a regiment of French Infantry
