FIW French 4

Finally I've made some real headway on the canadian militia/milicien for FIW. There's still quite a lot of work to be done, but I've started on the highlighting – the flesh areas and the red caps are done – so I'm getting there.

The miniatures are all from Galloping Major Wargames and I have to say they are unfortunately not as good as the ones from North Star: the poses and proportions are a bit odd to my eye. However, it's the faces that are the biggest problems, they lack in details and just look ... weird. As the miniatures are not exactly cheap this was quite disappointing to be honest. Still, with a little paint on them, I think they'll come out good enough. The plan is to have them all done by the next weekend, then it's on to the indians ("At last!" I hear you say).

Finally a warm welcome to my new followers: Grimsi Grogs, James Brewerton and MiniMike. I hope you'll like the blog.

Have a great week everyone!
