Well I finally got the 1st Battalion of the 21st Regiment finished. Painting the Grenadier and Voltigeur battalions took a bit longer than I expected due to studies getting in the way. The whole unit is Perry, all of the command expect for the drummer are metal figures and the rest plastics. An excellent line, but I would have hoped that at least the heads would have been separate for easier customization.
Still need to figure how to paint the whites better. Couple of layers and army painter looks OK, but I think it's still missing something. Well maybe in the next batch... I also decided to paint all the backpacks differently. Makes painting slightly slower, but it does make the unit look a lot nicer.
All in all, I'm pretty happy about how they turned out, eventhough apparently the drummers uniform should have been different. Probably should never check references after painting. I think the faces turned out pretty nicely now that I tried layering the paint a bit more before using painting army painter over the whole model. The close ups look a bit weird though as I don't like to paint eyes. Can't really see the point of it as you will never really see the difference when you are gaming.
Next I need to finish skirmish bases and some british artillery and command stands. And hopefully I'll have time to finish the 92th Gordon Highlanders before our next game too. I just ran out of suitable arms for charging minis so I need to find some more somewhere.
