168 Man Project Day 3 (Sort of)

Wednesday my youngest came down with a bug, and I spent two days nursing her back to health.  Today I was able to return to my project.

This morning I painted haversacks, cartridge boxes, percussion cap pouches, and belts black.  I also painted the muskets all black.  This afternoon I painted the musket stocks brown, and I hit the drums and bugles with brown while I was at it.  Tonight I painted all the metal fittings with steel color.



I won't be painting at all this weekend.  Day four will have to be Monday!

  1. I've been following your blog for many years, always inspiring and often motivating.
    Well done for trying to do 168 28mm in one run. I have recently been painting 28mm for Waterloo Uncovered re-enactment for the battle of Waterloo and found 8 - 12 figures at a time a challenge. I normally paint 18mm and even then, 24 - 32 is a max. So enjoy the sense of achievement once done!

  2. Hope all is well at Casa MacPhee. For me, this would be a depressingly large number of figures to tackle at once...even in overcoat!

  6. I'm someone who has lived a life seemingly in the background, I must say this final indignity I have suffered almost too much to endure. You see, I have been sickly and weak since the day I was born and doomed to go through my life weakling. I seemed to have always suffered from one illness or another and could never play with the other children as I so desperately wanted to. Mother always made such a big fuss over me, also, making the situation worse as the other boys teased me mercilessly after they saw it. I was browsing  the internet searching on how I could be transformed into a powerful person when I came across the email of a man named Lord Mark. who was a VAMPIRE so I told him that I has always dreamed of becoming a  VAMPIRES, All i did was just to follow the procedure that i was been told, and i bet you that procedure I took change my entire life to something i ever desire, freedom, sickness free, pains free, fame, influence, connections and even more that i can. Thanks to Lord Mark. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email: Vampirelord7878@gmail.com
