French 'Lights'

I think this unit to me represents the turning point in my Painting career back in 2005. Before, I had rushed through Regiments at lightning speed and with eras like the American Civil war, you could. However, with the Napoleonic French army and all It's detail and amazing colours, I had to stop and take my time with the painting to get things right. Painting Romans and Celts is great fun because you can use your imagination but with these guys you have to research and read. Two different types of enjoyment and satisfaction in one hobby, very rewarding indeed.
