Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers.

"The Scum of the Earth"
-Arthur Wellesley, 1813
Starting a new project is always fun. I currently have two new projects on the go, the first of which is 28mm Napoleonics.
I'm starting with the British - specifically the South Essex (latterly the Prince Of Wales' Own Volunteers).
These are a mix of Perry and Warlord plastics to provide some variation in height; I also painted various shades across the two ranges to ensure that there were subtle variations in colours to reflect the fact they've been in the field for a while.
Batch painting has always been my weakness so this was all about finding a system that wasn't too painful. The old lollystick approach and lots of washes and glazes was the main way although I am looking forward to the new Citadel Contrast paints as I reckon these will speed things up enormously.
Next up some
