Perry Casualty Figures

I have painted and based 10 of the Perry casualty figures.  Here's a picture of how they turned out.

New Camera

I was getting very irritated by the poor quality of my digital camera's performance of late.  I guess these things can get old and tired like everything else.  So I used some Christmas money to get a new one.  It is nothing fancy, but I think it will do the trick.  I am posting a few pictures to see if there is a noticeable difference.
My new Spanish collection. Seems to be sharper.  No lines at the top

Some French  legere I finished recently

My latest addition, some Victrix peninsular British
 I see an improvement.

Napoleonic Spanish Army and village

I have just completed my latest project, a Spanish army and a village for them to defend.  All of the figures are Old Glory 15s except for a few Battle Honors in the Irish regiment.  The buildings are from Hovels.  The walls are scratch built from some old cardboard coated with spackling and then painted to match the Hovels buildings.  I am pleased with how it all turned out.

In addition to the Spanish, I also added two batteries of artillery and two battalions of chasseurs a pied to my French Old Guard.  It is becoming a very formidable force.
