Finally got around to painting some French for a couple of my favorite periods.

Drop by and have a closer look!

Hoping with this post my blog will cross the 500,000 hits threshold. :-)

I can relate to the arthritic thumbs.

Yes, 15mm. Arthritic thumbs suck. After 15 minutes of painting they are in agony. Such is life. I paint in short bursts several times a day. Still, it takes weeks to paint six units. Sigh.

Great stuff, Eric!

Nice work! And for the gunners I think at 15mm Brits would work

Thanks, and I agree after looking online, that colonial brit gunners would work from 19th Century Miniatures.
