I got a battalion of 28mm 1870 French Foreign Legion done this evening. If I can work on a battalion a day, I can get entire 28mm 1870 French Foreign Legion infantry brigade done by the end of this weekend. That is my goal. I primed a 28mm 1870 French Cuirassier regiment this weekend. Based on what's been done, I should be able to cruiser through my 28mm FPW project. I want to get a 28mm 1870 French Infantry brigade done and a 28mm 1870 Prussian Infantry brigade done for a small game of Chassepot & Needlegun. I thought that would take me about six months. I'm thinking more like three months, now. That leaves me open to work on more 28mm FPW brigades as I acquire them. I also have various other projects to work on like 1/2400 scale WWI dreadnoughts and WH40K Space Marines.
I must confess my 28mm painting is much faster than my 15mm painting. I only started the 28mm 1870 FFL about a month ago. And I've made this much progress. New Winsor & Newton Series 7 brushes have made a definite difference in my painting. I use an assortment of paints and brushes in my miniature painting. I'll save that for my next blog article. However, I have to go through Dick Blick Art Supplies for my Winsor & Newton Series 7 brushes and Winsor & Newton drawing inks.
