  1. Wow! You are a painting machine! These Saxons are terrific and will soon be plentiful enough to fill up a gaming table.

    Great work!

    1. Hi Jon, I'm not to sure about me being a "painting machine" :o)

      I started my Napoleonic Saxon Infantry project during July and managed to paint 4 Infantry Regiments (8 Battalions) plus the 4 Grenadiers Battalions.

      I will be posting pictures of the other 2 Saxon Infantry Regiments soon, I didn't really want to open the "flood gates" to show you guys or "show off":oP (ego is a dirty word) my painted infantry regiments in one posting! :o)

      Thanks Jon!
      cheers,

    2. Completing 12 Napoleonic battalions in less than two months is incredible productivity in my book!

      Well done!

    3. You are also a "painting machine" Jon, :o)

      I am amazed the work you put into your figures and projects. Also you are one of few hobbyists that I know of who can write great articles of the written word, of their work...where as I'm lousy typing descriptions of my painted miniatures, anyway.. really enjoy reading your blog posts/articles - Awesome!

      cheers,

    1. Thanks Chris!.... Don't you dare change your commitment and pace of painting your miniatures. I would rather have your "patience" painting miniatures Chris ;o) than my raw aggressive approach :o) painting figures.

      cheers,
