Painting log: British fleet at Trafalgar, part 1

September 12, 2009 10:39 PM - Posted by Robartes - Category: Painting Log

While the smell of varnish is still in the air, I’m calling these finished. 16 ships, being Nelson’s column along with four frigates and Africa that was in neither Nelson’s nor Collingwood’s column. Add another 16 points for a total of 26 points this month.

Pictures will have to wait for the varnish to dry.

Next up are the first battalion/regiment of the Bavarian Napoleonics. They’ve been cleaned and primed and are set for their first layers of paint tomorrow. As an aside, I was pleasantly surprised at how easy these figures were to clean up - these being old figures I had expected them to suffer horribly from flash and mould lines — something I hate removing. However, apart from the obligatory flash at the tip of the bayonets these figures were clean as a whistle. Good job by Foundry!
