A head on shot of the entire 32-figure battalion of Freiherr Wilhelm's Pioneers. They have really come alive since completing the shirt cuffs and facings.
Above, you see a picture of Freiherr Wilhelm’s Pioneers as things now stand. All facings and turnbacks have been colored red. The collars, in keeping with the Osprey Men-at-Arms illustration of mid-19th century Austrians pontoniers on which I’m basing my figures, have been left out. Not anything you miss or that looks unfinished on these particular figures.
Unfortunately, I must take an evening off to take care of some paying writing projects I’ve been putting off. When I return to the painting desk, the next items on the agenda are the white shoulder belts, supporting the cartridge pouches, as well as the smaller leather and canvas straps that support the haversacks and canvas shoulder pouches.
Still eagerly awaiting Battlegames #13, to see myself in print. Alas, nothing yet. Sigh. And my subject matter? Well, you'll just have to wait and see. After all, I don't want to scoop myself you know. ;-) Enjoy your day men!
