    Ages ago, way before the first lockdown I purchased some dismounted light dragoons for my Anglo / Portuguese Peninsular army. Light Dragoons skirmishing from the Perry Twins and a Horse holder set, sculpted by Paul Hicks, from Brigade Games.

    These were all duly based and primed ready for painting by June 2020. Painting continued at a steady, if not slow pace until sometime around late August when my hobby mojo got up and left the building. No idea why, just developed a meh attitude to getting stuff out to paint of an evening after work. Whether this was just a symptom of the general meh that I’m sure a lot of people had last year, and may still be having, or just a shift in interest caused by no physical gaming occuring as the second lockdown started, I don’t know.

    Finally this February with the prospect of evenings sat in a hotel room, work course, I got these figures out again, along with a few painting supplies, to take with me.

    After this week away they only needed final touchups and the basing finishing before varnishing. This finally happened two days ago as I wanted to try using my airbrush for this now I had a wider nozzel and needle.

    I have painted these with orange facings to represent the 14th Light Dragoons, who I also have as a mounted unit.

    So after almost nine months they are finally finished, the longest it has taken me to complete anything (once started).
