Finally a few pictures for your viewing pleasure!

Thank you so much to everyone for your patience. And now (drum roll, please), for your viewing pleasure, several photos of the 2nd (Von Laurenz) Musketeers. I hope you enjoy them.

I've chosen photos showing the gradual completion of work begun in late-July and finished in early-September 2006 -- from no paint at all to all finished exept for the protective "Future" coating.

It's interesting to compare the next batch of figures in later photos with the completed figures in the foreground. Quite a difference, eh? The same unpainted background figures are slated to become a unit of jaegers, who will fight along side the 2nd Musketeers against forces belonging to the Electorate of Zichenau.

For future photos, I hope to obtain and use a digital camera with a macro feature, which will make photographing painted miniatures a little easier -- and the finished products a bit clearer and more interesting to view.

Oh, and before I forget, I have finished and colored a basic map of my campaign area, which I will post here later this week once I have scanned it. Stay tuned boys and girls!

Remember, if you "click" on a photo, you get to see a larger version of it.

Interesting, what are you mounting the line of figs on to hold while you are brushing?

As far as the temporary bases are concerned, I use 1" square pieces of cardboard for foot figures and 1" x 2" pieces for horsed figures. This is what you see in these photographs. I started doing this is the late 80s with my 15mm Waterloo era Napoleonics. Prior to that, I used to glue many figures at a time onto long strips of cardboard. In the end, I found that it was easier to handle 1 figure at a time.

Until the last couple of days, I had been doing the same with my 1/72 plastic figures, but certain complications have led me to reconsider the wisdom of this since some paint pulls away when detaching finsihed figures from these temporary bases.
