Well, after publishing the article explaining the process of selecting Irregular 6mm Naps for my solo campaign project, I threw down the gauntlet and pulled out the paintbrushes to see just how quickly I could put together some Irregular mins.
I have a bunch of French stands that I spray painted blue a few years go so I grabbed 4 Line Infantry Command stands and 20 Line Infantry stands. 1 Brigade!
I painted a quick as I could but still ended up having a couple of 'say hello to the wife' breaks and a few coffee breaks.
In about 4 hours I had this all done:
With a close up to show the 'swisho' paint job I gave them:
That to me is quite adequate for the large Mass armies I am wanting.
I believe I can get this paint time down further. I'm certainly not the fastest painter out there so I know the timing can be improved. Any tips would be most welcome. If I can get 2 or 3 Brigades done a week I would be most happy.
Now I'm off to start some Prussians.
