3rd Entry into Analogue Painting comp

For my third entry i painted up 12 Front Rank French lancers a Perry Miniatures French Generals staff set and some children that were supposed to be part of a side challenge but i forgot so missed that one., I lover the Front Rank figures they are so easy to paint the detail is crisp and clean, which is good because i have a lot to paint, I've completed my nest two entries and am now working on my 6th which is a bit bigger but i did about 10 hours work on it yesterday and am about 70 percent completed today is a day of rest some my wife doesn't shot me.
the Lancers are part of an army I'm painting for a friend of mine Reg. once the French are completed i'm going to start on the Russians

 i was pleased with this set it's the second time i've painted it up it's been sitting in my cupboard for a year or more and it took me about 3 hours to paint
 I bought the figures below off trademe and cant remember what the make is and have no idea what i'll use them for

Second entry to Analogue Painting challenge French 28mm Cuirassiers

French cuirassiers, this time i went for 28mm cav 12 Perry and 12 Front Rank heavy French cavalry it took me 23-25 hours to paint these, i don't think the wife is to impressed with me at this stage can you imagine what it is like a week later and in 2.5 months. As you can see there is not extra grasses on the bases as i am skint after paying of a new kitchen that ran over budget, i'm just hoping i don't run out of static grass.

This is the first time that i have painted 24 cav in a week, i don't think it will be my last.there is a lot of cavalry in the pile of figures that i am attempting to complete by the end of this challenge

My first entry into the Analogue Painting Challenge

 I managed to scrape these together on the first day of the challenge something to get me on the board, I've been painting most nights since and have racked up 23 hours of painting this week, which has allowed me to do something i have been unable to achieve before, but you will have to wait till it has been shown on curts blog, still need some basing but should be almost complete tomorrow, today i started the next batch of figures so it all go but all top secret here
 these half tracks are part of a batch of old fow miniatures that i decided to repaint to fit into my new army
 you can see some damage on the rear half track i think i might paint some battle damage in there
