Have I missed Bluefalchoin? Has you really committed yourself? Maybe you can confirm this once more.

Giovanni will paint some Austrians, because he would like to hold his Prussian army, what I can understand, of course. But he is in! :yeah:

I talked about doing some Indian War guys from 1855, but I can't find them amongst my many boxes at the moment. I should be able to take some more time to search around this weekend.

Yep, I found them. I will be painting up a column of marching Indian Wars soldiers from 1855. Will post further updates as events warrant.

Great, so America is in finally. Can you tell us something about the figures you would like to use? I do not know much about marching Infantry during the Indian Wars. I know only the US Cavalry.

Classic Airfix ACW guys (from both sides) with some theater-appropriate minor modifications.

Partners when I started to see the thread made me very excited to participate but unfortunately at the moment I do not have much inspiration to paint, I hope to keep the project attentive and that it works out very well.
For now, I'm in a bit of a bit of modeling.
A greeting.
Santi.

Santi, take your time. I hope to get an entry from you. As you are representing Spain in the GB. :-D

But this is a hobby, of course. Even if I hope that a muse will kiss you :love1:

Well Jan,I did not paint 500,but I still have a few others I promised to do.
My word is my bound and I live by it as always.

It slipped my mind completely! ;-)
So I started some today for my own use from the box which are shown above, but can send some marching ones along soon.
It is no trouble and it will be just a dozen more to enjoy painting. :-D They can hid behind Gunnar`s surprise AIRFIX figures. See you guys later. :-D BB

Mai Strac, Italy
Mr. Andrea, Italy / Togo
PeachPiz, Philippines

After taking this picture Konrad delivered the Strelets Highlanders as well. I did not managed to take a picture, so I refer to his picture.

Hi Jan, sorry for the silence. I am working on it. Slowly, but working. And I need to take advantage of the presence of a colleague from Bonn here in Togo and use him as carrier; which means I have to complete my brushwork on the bersaglieri by this Wednesday. OMG!

That is a goal, Andrea. And after that you are free, ;-) Please let me know how the transfer will be done. I hope you and your family are doping well in Togo and I hope next time we need no carrier.
