|My Chasseur a Cheval test in his current stage|
I managed to get a lot of base coating done this past weekend. 18 more Legere in long coats are base coated and nearing completion with that portion. I am going to end up "dipping" this specific unit. For those of you that do not know what "dip" or "dipping" is, you are in luck! I will do a little tutorial on how it works later this week.
Some time ago on a very prominent hobby blog for primarily science fiction and fantasy war gaming, a discussion was had about a product from a company called Army Painter. One individual know-it-all proceeded to tell everyone how it was a horrible product and anyone that uses it could never produce a piece of quality. Needless to say, I beg to differ. In fact I can honestly say that I have seen it used with stunning success in the Historical War Gaming Community. No, the two models featured tonight do not use this process. But I will post a step by step on how I use it soon.

Speaking of restocks, I had to order some Grenadiers from the Perry Twins over in the UK. And with them a few extra goodies to help scratch a hobby itch I am having. More on that later ;)
Well my night is winding down. Cold Wars is in just under 2 weeks. Yeah, it's a bit of a hike to get to. But I am debating on bringing some of my French on over to the painting contest to see if any are up to par. I am not overly optimistic, but the theme is 1812, A World At War. So the boys fit in nicely. Maybe I will try and finish Foy.
