Over the Hills and Far Away

Last night I finished the first block of my British Peninsular army for Black Powder, and I couldn’t be more excited to finally get them on the gaming table! Units completed so far are:

30th Cambridgeshire Regiment

44th East Essex Regiment

42nd Royal Highland, Black Watch

16th Queens Own Light Dragoons

I also added a few commanders, and am planning on adding some artillery units next. I actually started painting these well over three years ago, as my first foray into the Napoleonic era. It was slow-going at first; the amount of effort that went into getting the detailed uniforms painted seemed daunting. It’s all perspective though; now I feel I can churn out line infantry very quickly.

I’ve used a mix of Victrix, Perry and Warlord miniatures. The Warlord ones are the most efficient to put together, with the Victrix ones taking much longer due to the amount of parts – however you do get a nice variety of poses that way.
