I could almost copy and paste my first Minifigs post from Challenge VIII. Painting these old school best-scale-of-all Minifigs is always a pleasure and takes me back to my first wargaming adventures. Around forty years ago I met my best friend through wargaming and my brother and I used to take over the dining room table for days.
Ahh, more figures for 'The Beautiful Game' and old school Minifigs to boot - tremendous stuff, Pete. The painting is nice and clean, which is not too hard with these sculpts as they are much the same. I remember this project from last year and am happy to hear that you found some more recruits in the interim. I hope your posts this year might net you additional reinforcements for Boney's force as I'd love to see this vision quest come into reality.
This battalion of French line will give you 120 points. Great work Pete!
