I can always tell when I'm coming to the end of an army ( does one ever truly finish off an army ? ) - I start painting Generals and Staff . Here we see the Papal C in C General De La Moriciere and his second in command General De Pimodan . My C in C are on a larger base with an accompanying figure to distinguish them from the ordinary sub - generals .
I have re-based Garibaldi to fit in with this system .
I've painted up another of Garibaldi's commanders - this one is Nino Bixio and is a converted Irregular Hussar figure with an added Pelisse from 'Greenstuff' .
Another sign of a completed army is the painting of limbers for the artillery - I hate putting together and painting limbers ! - but when finished I do like having them and think they look good on the table top .
P.S just remembered that I've not quite finished my Papal Army as I've got another Line Infantry unit to do ! .
