This isn’t quite a ‘painting’ achievement, but I’m going to count them anyway — I just finished 13 French cuirassiers.
They’re a bit special, as I did not paint the figures myself. At the bring and buy at the Crisis convention earlier this year, I picked up a 28mm French Napoleonic army for a very cheap price. The figures are painted in a basic single colour style and have suffered a bit from use and transport. However, given the price, they were a bargain.
The idea with them is to touch up the paint jobs where necessary, give them a dip in Army Painter Dip and finally rebase them. I have done just that for the cuirassiers: touched up a few scuffed paint areas, painted in little ‘7’s on their saddlebags (cognoscenti may now correct me with the correct Napoleonic term :) ) and dipped them.
Even though it is not a full paint job, there is still some time spent on these ‘transformations’, so I’m awarding myself half points for them. That means these bring me 13 points (out of a normal 26 for 13 cavalry figures), or a total of 44 this month. Painting is picking up again, it seems.
Photos to follow as their basing is finished.
