2019 Painting Review

So with 2019 done and dusted I thought it would be a good time to review my classic Napoleonics painting completed in the year.  Each Infantry/artilleryman figure painted counts as a point with a mounted figure and artillery piece counting as 2.

In all I painted 69 Infantry/artillerymen, 28 mounted and 2 guns.  So in all 129 points worth.  I had hoped to do more and aim to do more this year. I am going to move onto some Prussians next and I am hoping that the simpler uniforms may make it quicker to paint

In chronological order this us what I painted.

British Rifles.


British Lifeguards


British Royal Horse Artillery


Brunswick Line Infantry


Wellington and Picton


French Voltigeurs


Davout and Ney


Brunswick Hussars


And finally the first 12 of the Flanker Chasseurs. The other 12 are on the painting table.

Cheerful, wonderfully painted figures and units. A year well spent I'd say. Here's to more painting in 2020.

Best Regards,

Great stuff Mark.

I think you are leading this particular 'Old School' charge.

Here’s to lots more shininess this year.

All the best. Aly

Mark, thanks for the inspiration. I have been seduced by WM ably seconded by yourself and a number of other bloggers and am now contemplating my first battalion of French as recently acquired off eBay. I also have some Garrison Light Infantry of the type you painted up as a Prussian Reserve Regiment - I intend to paint them as Spanish - Rob Young says he may be able to provide some more to bring them up to strength. What I am keeping my eye open for are some of those gorgeous Brunswick Hussars.
Keep it coming in 20220 - Thanks.

That should've been 2020 as I can't wait 'til 20220!!!

Simply wonderful, Mark!
Two stunning regiments of cavalry...I hang my head in shame...
All the best

WM - My reaction as well. Nothing but shame at the inadequacy of my painting production. Mark, I am astonished you have been able to turn out this many figures at that quality in only a year. Well done sir!
