Well it's taken ages - been seduced by other shiny things - but I've got the first part of my 1860 Piedmontese army done !.
The Brigade comprises of the 1st and 2nd Battalions of the 9th Infantry Regiment and the 11th Battalion of Bersaglieri . Here seen deployed ready for action .
A close up of the Brigadier , I have one or two other things to polish off then I will be putting another order in to Irregular for the next Brigade . It may be a couple of Lancer Squadrons and a gun and crew as the Line Infantry are a bit boring to paint - grey greatcoats and white trousers, the regimental distinctions are to small to paint on the figures (at least for me they are!) and the one thing that distinguishes them is the number painted onto the shako .
And finally a gratuitous 'Ah ' photo of Charlie and Hugo , who as you can see are getting along very well .
