I'm posting again which means one thing—I found employment! I'll be working for an advertising agency in St. Louis which means I'll be relocating from Atlanta back to my hometown!!

That said, here are some pix of units I've been painting for my Leipzig diorama.
These in these posts you'll you see— HäT French Young Guard and Prussian Reserves, Zvezda Russian Grenadiers, Cuirassiers, French Imperial Guard, Revell Prussians and Waterloo 1815 Polish Infantry.

This is a great group of figures—the sculpting on all is crisp and sharp, easy to paint (though I painfully plod along at a snail's pace) I was thinking of giving a 'shout out' to some manufacturers but these are all great. I love everything Zvezda does—the Russian Grenadiers and Cuirassiers particularly. Props to Revell for releasing their Prussian Line Infantry. These guys look awesome. Even the simply sculpted French Young Guard have a nice presence.
More pix to follow. Cheers!

Photoshop Alert—the haze, smoke and rifle fire on one of the Prussian shots were added.

good to be back.

thanks for the comments and regarding painting, it's relative—1) don't look too closely 2) I see so much stuff that puts me to shame

and that beer is looking really good right now!

William Younger's Tartan Special Ale , Shadrach .

I like it too much .

I've only recently started back painting figures and have noticed my eyesight is a real handicap after a gap of 20-25 years .

Trying Hat Colonial Highlanders (as Argyll and Sutherland Hdrs) and Gatling Guns (RA) just now , but results are lamentable in comparison with your Leipzig stuff .

Well done , that man .
