Here are the first completed stands of the thirty or so infantry stands to have been debased, rebased, washed in Agrax Earth shade and then matt varnished. Twelve are shown below.
The figures are thought to be Essex Miniatures and although they look particularly dark are very good when assembled en masse. The darker finish will suit some tinkering with the images for those black and white period pics.
However, more about that in the future.
There will be more infantry and dismounted cavalry to follow shortly.
Cheers for now.
