When the Perry are late to deliver

Tomorrow is the 14th of May. The Perrys cleared my cheque on the 14th of April. And my order was sent by mail 10 days before. You do the math... that is a lot of time!! I ran out of minis to paint two weeks ago already! Well, that is not exactly true, as I painted a spare mounted colonel I had, which I was planning to keep for the very end of the project.

I am slightly disappointed by how the face turned up. I will have to buy a new brush.

 But at least I'm quite pleased with the horse. The photo doesn't render the silver shine of the grey (one coat of "Sky Grey", and then some "Silver" added sparsely), but it looks good in real.
Same as the red collar. It's not pink at all, it's just a camera effect!


voltigeurs company

Here are 3 voltigeurs completed. I ran out of light infantry miniatures to paint and my Perry order hasn't been delivered yet!

I enjoyed the mini on the right. I gave it different epaulettes and trousers (as there was no regulation for those, different variants co-existed). I also gave it brown trousers: a souvenir from the Spanish campaign?
