Inspired by my actually finishing a unit of figures last week I have been making slow but steady progress on two early nineteenth century units in shakos (how old school!).
I managed a bit more on my Confederation of the Rhine Infantry first company which are well over half way done now. For no reason I can quite explain I also dug out some of Boot Hill Miniatures splendid 1836 Mexicans which I started some time ago but then lost in the lead pile. These are an absolute pleasure to paint (compared with the extremely fiddly Perry figures) and I am enjoying painting them so much I ordered some more this week so I can finish my Matamoros regiment at roughly 1/10 ratio.
I have no chance of finishing them this weekend as I have a lot to do on them still but will see how I get on. I'm off to a small local model soldier show in Guildford today and hope to meet up with Eric the Shed but I'm going to try to get a good hour's painting done first.
