More Italians and a New Terrain Matt

I finished two more battalions of Italians, one line and one light. I used a different technique for the white using a undercoat of spice tan and then blending that with ivory and then a final highlight of ivory mixed with white. I am very pleased with how it turned out.

The new matt is from Killing Fields Terrain. It was $75 plus $8 postage. I ordered it on Monday and it arrived on Friday. It thought it would be a little longer, but the width is perfect for my table. I like how it looks and I can now put hill pieces under it so contours will look much more natural.

A Bevy of New Units

It has been awhile since my last post, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy. I have added more artillery, some limbers and four new battalions of infantry to join the French in the peninsula. The pictures aren't the best, but they will give you an idea of how they turned out.
