"Our tribute to the heroic past is its armies in miniature, today."
Recreating a 1970s Wargame army using 20mm vintage figures.
Thursday, 6 July 2017
I’ve finally put the buildings away (for now) and decided to get on with painting some figures. Currently in progress are the company of French Voltigeurs that have been lurking at the back of my painting desk for the last few weeks.
These are not actually Voltigeurs but are FN3 Grenadier (firing) painted to look like Voltigeurs. This is the classic ‘I’m shooting with a tree trunk whilst aiming too high’ pose and the figures are nicely cast vintage ones.
I’d forgotten how time consuming painting French uniforms can be and there has been lots of toing and froing with the white and black paint this evening trying to get all the straps done. Hopefully one more session will see them finished.
