While Perry's are still my favorites, Front Rank are rapidly moving up the "like-o-meter" and I really enjoy painting them. In fact I started this unit Saturday afternoon after shoveling snow and finished them Sunday morning.
I got the flags from a free online site (nap flags) and painted these chaps as a generic infantry unit. With the completion of this unit, I've finished all the miniatures I need for the summers convention game. I may add a few more for optionality but I've got the basics covered. It feels kind of weird having the painting essentially done 6 months before a convention game!
This submission should net me 162 points, 160 for 42 figures and 2 for the 2 flags.
One more submission to go today.
Ah yes the "like-o-meter" , yet another of the modern technological advances used today. well these figures score high on my Like-o-meter as well. Well done with the flags. I like both Napflags and its more general cousin Warflag, they provide wonderful, easy to use and free flags.
Again its it is nice to see your troops on your terrain boards I like the stream in the background. If I can make a suggestion for the next unit of Portuguese, why not try a mix of pans trousers, using grey and the ubiquitous Iberian brown. It will give them less of a uniform look, make them look more experienced and break up the large concentration of blue in the official uniform.
