Painting on Irish Grenzer Battalion Finished!

Battalion assembled, Sah!

Gentlemen, meet the 1st (O’Malley’s) Most Honorable Grenzer Battalion! Barring a glossy coat of Future floor polish and a couple of tiny touch-ups, painting has been concluded on this unit of infantry, which will join the ranks of the army fighting for the Electorate of Zichenau. Overall, I’m very pleased with the figures’ appearance. Not connoisseur quality, but just fine for my collection and wargaming use. Next up in the painting queue, a few RSM95 generals on horseback before moving on to that battalion of Revell Prussians. Charge!


Battalion staff up close.


Colonel Thomas O'Malley.

Close-up of Company A officer and drummer.


Close-up of drummer. . . who still needs his white shirt cuffs (groan!).

Stokes,

Good work! These lads look every inch like soldiers . . . and they should be splendid on the table top.

Nice looking troops Stokes. You have much to be proud of here. Are they all RSM?

Very lovely, Stokes. Quite inspiring work as always. Though, we friends of Stollen may be forgiven for hoping their performance is not quite as good on the field of battle, being evil Zichenauers. ;)

Nice work! Excellent added detailing on the drummer!
(painted up so nicely they are guaranteed to do poorly on the battlefield? lol)

Excellent figures, Stokes! It's nice to see the Wild Geese portrayed in our imaginary world.

Really nice, Stokes. Despite their age the RSM figures still paint up very well. What are the figures in the background, by the way?
