The 45th "Sherwood Foresters"

It's being a while since I painted anything Napoleonic! So where better to start then the thin red line.
I have pushed myself to get these finished, Napoleonics are my nemesis and I will openly admit it. I find them daunting to say the least but when they are done they do give me a massive buzz. So on to the figures, they are the plastic set from Warlord Games with the metal command set. The figures are easy build, head, body and backpack, they made a nice change from Victrix sets. I like the Victrix plastics so I'm not knocking them but for marching figures easy build is a fantastic change.

 The regiment in all its glory, colours flying with pride. The flags were a pain in the arse, I think I made a huge mistake of glueing the flags together and then waiting for the glue to dry before I started to fold and shape the flags. They creased horribly and the print started to flake off, the paper the flags are printed on is pretty thick compared to other companies. Next time I will shape and fold the flags while the glue is still wet. 
 The command figures are lovely looking figures, and the sergeant dressing the line with his pike certainly looks the part.
 I'm definitely no expert on Napoleonics so I'm pretty sure I'm made some errors but they are good enough for me, and boy oh boy do they look good in all lined up. 

 Next up, probably some French cavalry. I've got a few to choose from so watch this space as they say! 

So thanks for looking, please feel free to comment. All comments are wecome and very much appreciated.

Thanks again 
Cheers for now Russ
