Somehow I’ve managed to finish painting the Black Watch in the record time of only three months! Actually, sarcasm aside, that really is quick for me considering the amount of tartan and other detail involved. Strangely I really enjoyed all the faffing about to produce this unit although I’ll say right here and now that this will be the only kilted unit I’m going to paint for this project.
I just need to finish the detail on the top of the flag poles and then base the whole lot up before they can take their place in the British order of battle ready for Vintage Waterloo.
According to Roy things are progressing well (only he could email me with the line “I found 24 painted Old Guard today”) and at some point in the next month or two we intend to get together for a dry run and to thrash out the details of the game.
