My latest unit to take to the field is a Napoleonic British Light Infantry battalion. The figures are 25mm Minifigs, recently purchased from Calivar, who have taken over production. The castings are lovely, with minimal cleaning up and a joy to paint.
These figures, painted in my 'toy soldier' style, used a mix of Humbrol, Revell and Tamiya gloss paints. Due to the long drying times they took a week to finish.
