The Prussians are Coming!

For the past few weeks (almost eight it seems) I’ve been working on 10mm Prussian infantry for Look, Sarge, No Charts: Napoleonic Wars.  I made a mistake by trying to paint 700 figures in one batch, so it started to feel like work after a while.  Yesterday I finished them.  My skills at painting 10mm figures are limited, but en masse, I think they look pretty good.

To finish up the Prussian I Corps for 1812-1815 I plan to pick up a few more bags of Old Glory figures at Cold Wars, including more Landwehr and various cavalry.

ERTL makes a farm house set that is still available for a reasonable price on Ebay.  It is perfectly scaled for 28mm figures.  My daughter and I just finished painting and assembling it.  I modified it a bit by cutting off some of the tabs that hold it together.  This allows the second floor to come off without much of a fight.  I used a piece of cardboard to add a second floor inside.

This is what it looks like in the box.  The kit is hard plastic and assembles easily.
