Since Foundry brushes and paints for French finally arrived – somewhat late I might add, I have now been able to paint two regiments of French Cuirassiers and compare the results. I have tried to pay attention to the details that Baccus figures offer (but that requires still a quite bit more work).
I have to say that the new Cuirassiers turned out much better – even though they are still mounted in pony/cows (cownies?).
I have to say that albeit Foundry delivery took longer than expected, there was an apology accompanied by quite nice 28mm white metal cast figures (Some Austrian Landwehr command etc and sole knight). I will probably give try to those at some point when time permits, even if I do not really have use for them except of decoration. My gaming space is restricted, and will be probably even more so in future and do not have space for such a large scale games.
I do, however appreciate the thought and if the main thing – that is the brushes and paints live up to the reputation, then delay will not prevent me from doing more shopping there. For now, I do like the fine detail brushes, that are much better than the ones I used before.
