I have been involved with miniature soldiers since I was four years old. For Christmas I received a Fort Apache play set. I was hooked from that moment on. I love all aspects of military history, but I am especially fond of the 18th and 19th centuries. I have painted up large armies for the Seven Years War, Jacobite Rebellion, American Revolution, and the American Civil War. I also have a nice collection of soldiers for the Battle for Empires.
I have made some good progress on my Victrix project. Here are some pictures of my finished units, including British artillery, French line and guard infantry and some highlanders.
British foot artillery
French Old Guard grenadiers
French line infantry
92nd Gordon Highlanders
These have been fun figures to paint. Despite the detail required, I have enjoyed painting the highlanders the most. I am almost finished with a second regiment and half way done with the third. So to date I have painted a total of 240 infantry figures, 15 artillerists, three cannons and three caissons.
