The Guard arrives

In a box from Baccus.......

A box arrived on Saturday morning containing the the French Guard infantry, artillery and some of the cavalry.  I'll get these onto lollipop sticks and based so that they are ready to be painted once the Russian cavalry is completed.  That evil man, Peter Berry, also included a free pack of Great War mini's - I will resist, I will resist, they do look very good though.

I missed my deadline again last week, however, the Dragoons and Skeletons are finished and photographed so I'll be submitting them this week.  I'm also going to try and complete a second oldhammer undead unit this week as I'm in a hotel for the next few nights.  I managed to complete 8 figures last week and added some sand/gravel to the bases over the weekend. The plan is to paint 20 of these using the original citadel paints:

Now that the Russian Dragoons are out of the way, I can start on the Cossacks.  I need 90 figures for 5x60mm square bases and I plan to have these completed next week.  Photo below shows them primed and 'black washed' ready for painting:
