Here is my first unit of Redcoats finished. I am very happy with the finished result. Apart from the two casualties, who are from Offensive Miniatures, the Company is made up of Foundry figures (sculpted by the Perrys). The bases are from 4Ground drilled and fitted with neodymium magnets. The movement tray I made. Standards are by GMB Designs.

Another four Companies to go, two Highland Flank Companies, a Company of Portuguese Foot, three Companies of Cavalry and two Artillery.

The wife is away cheffing at The Taste of London festival so painting time has been reduced this week. However I am using what time I have by making more Napoleonic movement trays. I’ll post how I make them, it is a fairly simple job.

Can you tell what it is yet? Part Three

Not the most amazing joinery, but it kept me busy for a week which is always a bonus. The light takes a 20W Halogen bulb which is a bit dim. Plus it is "Warm White" and I work in "Cool White". There are LEDs in the same fitting, but some Amazon reviews mentioned a flickering effect if the transformer for the light is not suitable. The light is a Nuova by Veneta Lumi. I'm going to finish the last Job on the old tray and start the next on this.
