A total distraction (Off Topic #9)

I blame Matt entirely for the lack of progress on the Hinton Hunt front as I have been tempted into buying a unit of 28mm Schleswig Holstein Infantry from his superb new Waterloo to Mons range of figures. The range has been sculpted by Andrew Stadden and the figures have a real old school charm about them that I just could not resist.

I don’t have much experience when it comes to shading technique so I dusted off my Kevin Dallimore "Foundry Painting Guide" for help and these two figures are the result of my effort. I’m actually quite pleased with them and am looking forward to painting up the rest of the unit although I promise to keep my distraction as brief as possible and return to HH production as soon as they’re done.

Good luck to Matt with his new venture - if you want to see more pictures of these lovely figures (painted superbly by Matt) take a look at Matt’s blog.

Ha - looking forward to seeing them in the flesh at Salute - but in the meanwhile I echo Fraxinus's comments - nice paint job!
