More Commission Work

I am continuing to plug away at the early Prussian army my friend is having me paint for him.  The latest to be completed were seven canons and some officers.

My latest commission

I have just begun painting up what will eventually be over 300 Elites Miniatures early Prussians.  I started out with six regiments of fusiliers and tonight I finished a regiment of hussars and a regiment of Towarczys.  The Elite figures are fairly simple, but have enough detail that makes them a pleasure to paint.  Here are a few pictures.

The wolf's teeth on these turned out pretty well I think.  Quite a minute detail that adds a lot to the figure.

What I have been up to

I have been busy doing a lot of painting lately.  I have had the good fortune of having some fun commission work to do, mostly in 25/28 mm, but some 15 mm as well.  For myself, I have been painting up a lot of 28 mm cavalry to bring my units up to either 18 or 24 in number.  They look quite impressive when arrayed in formation.  Here are a few pictures.

Old Glory 2nd Edition Yanks.  I did three boxed sets of these.  They had enough detail to make the painting enjoyable.

I did three boxes of Rebels as well.  
These are Foundry command figures.  These are corp commanders and aides de camp, all French

These are divisional commanders, again, all French

A close-up of the divisional commanders
Perry British Lt. Dragoons painted as KGL.  This brings that unit up to 24 figures

Warlord Games French Chasseurs.  A second box to bring this unit up to 24.
More Perrys, but painted as an earlier unit.
Next up on the painting table will be a huge commission of Elite Miniatures early Napoleonic Prussians.  That should keep me busy for quite awhile..
