More Analogue Hobbies Painting Fun

I've been pleased to be part of the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge this year. It's driven me to do a few things I wouldn't otherwise tackle. 

And so far this year, painting has exceeded purchases! Some old stuff... 


And some new stuff.. the Austrian Hussars I purchased this month. There's 14 in a box, but Sharp Practice uses groups of 8, so that plus an officer seemed enough. I suppose another box would give me 3 groups of 8 plus officer and musician... but three groups is excessive for a Sharp Practice force. 

Loads of fun; or at least - I'm happy with how they turned out, but wow, that was a lot of paint work...  next up hmmmm, maybe some 'Indian War of Independence' (the conflict formerly known as the Indian Mutiny)? I slapped some Contrast Paint on a sample figure... how hard could it be?


  1. Eclectic batch but, oh, those hussars are NICE!

  2. I really like how they turned out, but oh my goodness.. I counted at least 32 different colours. At least now it's the mainly all white infantry... but then I have to do the Italian opponents...

  3. I didn't think you got to call a war "of Independence" when you lost ...

    Nice figures.

    1. I think if it's your war in your country against a foreign occupier, you're probably entitled to decide what it should be called...

  4. The Austrian Hussars look fantastic! Re the Mutiny (!) watch out, you are on a slippery slope there - soon, you will think playing a game with toy soldiers that represents any type of Colonial conflict isn't ethical!
