Heavy-duty miniature cleaning - Brutal final for (maybe) the last arbrushing session...

For the remainder of the week we have a really good weater forecast and so I hope to have the chance to hold another airbrushing session on the balcony. Maybe the last one before autumn which means maybe the last one this year.
Therefore I spent part of the weekend as well as the last evenings with deflashing and cleaning miniatures. The result is a bowl with about 50 horses and more than 30 foot soldiers. The plan is to prime them on Saturday and hopefully apply the base colour as well.

Additionally I prepared a miniature for a conversion. More precisely a staff officer from Prince Bernhard of Saxe-Weimar's staff shall become Major Edmund L'Estrange who was Sir Dennis Pack's ADC during the battle of Waterloo. He and the general himself will represent the command of my incarnation of the British 9th brigade of the prementioned battle. 
Anyway preparation in this case means a lot of milling. As soon as I added some green stuff I'll present my humble work.


  1. Wow! This is a lot of lead! Goog luck for saturday! :-)

  2. Looks like you're set up for the weekend - clever thing to airbrush the primer on.
    I'm looking forward to that conversion, sounded like it would make a cool command stand.

  3. Good luck getting them sprayed,


  4. I hope for you that the weather forecast stays what it is. Can't wait to see this mountain of lead painted! I wish you good luck! ;-)


  5. That's a lot of mini's! Best wishes on getting it done and hope the weather holds!

  6. Good progress being made. I've never thought to catch my trimmings when I clean figures, I'll have to give that a try.
