Stuff from the Lead Pile

 Rotten weather this weekend meant a chance to catch up with some painting. My 19thC kick continues with these Rifle Brigade figures from Great War Miniatures. They've been kicking around half done for ages, so I decided that had to change.

Getting the dark rifle green was a little tricky but I added a wash of Citadel Contrast Dark Angels Green and that seemed to get that "darker than bottle but not black green" colour I was after. The poses are excellent - lots of movement and action in them, perfect for skirmishers. 

Raking about in the drawer I found an RA artillery pack and 17 Warlord plastic short! If anyone has a Warlord or Great War Russian officer going spare let me know!!!

Once those are finished all of my Crimean War figures will be done - another project nailed.

Painting will slow now. I have some writing to do, some 18thC figures to base and some photos to take.
