In my previous post, I showcased these figures as depicted on the Steve Barber website (in all their professionally painted glory). In this post, dear readers, you can see them in raw form (you will note that I am squarely in the white-primer camp).
Infantry Advancing in Kepis: these are destined to become one unit of "Red Caps" and one unit of "White Caps"
Infantry in Fur Caps: there will be one unit of these unique fellows.
The newly released officers advancing with sword will provide the leader figures for these new units.
It is particularly gratifying to be working on figures that I commissioned (the infantry in kepis and the officer variants--the fellows in the fur caps are also a new release, but I didn't commission them). It seems as though things will be settling down into a more normal pattern again (fingers crossed), and I'll be able to return to my usual routine of getting some painting done each day. If that holds, I should be posting the finished product within two weeks.
