French line foot artillery (4)
Two further things to say while I'm here. First, I'm having Blogger problems again, in that I've noticed a lot of comments I've posted on other people's blogs aren't there. Either the blog owners are not allowing them through (unlikely) or something goes wrong when I submit them. It mainly seems to happen on blogs where you have to do that ghastly "captcha" word verification thing. Secondly, while I have 8 posts' worth of finished Napoleonics to write about over the next couple of months, I'm going to spend much of the next few months on the AWI. I'm waiting for my boxes of Perry plastic British infantry to arrive and I'm also re-visiting Eureka's cavalry figures. Some cryptic statements on TMP also suggest that we'll see plenty more Perry AWI releases in due course (the last metal pack was AW175 and the plastic British are AW200, so I assume there are at least another 25 packs to come!). Finally, I'm making progress with Bill Nevin's excellent King's Mountain highlander figures and when the first unit is finished I'll post some pics before I send them off to Bill in the USA. I don't take on painting commissions (there's not enough time to paint everything I want for myself!), but Bill made me an offer I couldn't refuse and he's getting 50-odd painted highlanders in return!
3 figures. Painted December 2012.
