Bastille Day WIP's parade

It may still be work in progress, but this bataillon only needs basing now. It's time for a review, and what better day that the French National Day? There are a total of 28 men on foot, plus a mounted colonel. Here's a nearly finished 5th regiment of light infantry!

On this close-up you'll notice an NCO, that's the line NCO from Perry that I modified for light infantry. I also "played" with the private following him: look at his shako plate and his trousers.

This is an idea of what it will look like when deployed in line with the command stand in the front.

As I am now painting the last 4 skirmishers to finish this bataillon in a wargame format, I start wondering about what I'll do next. I'm not sure I have the stamina to paint yet another bataillon of light infantry. At my pace, repetition seems like eternity! Possibly some hussards?

I also need to take into account that with a baby expected in Septembre, I may have less time for my hobbies! I should not try to be too ambitious... oops...
