Asking a professional painter to paint 1,000 French line infantry was perhaps doomed to fail. The photo shows some of the better little chaps as opposed to some that were returned spray painted black and that was it. Needless to say I think the whole task was beyond him sadly so I have 1,000 French line infantry to work on and have been for the last 6 months…on and off. It is a tough task. These Art Miniaturen figures will look great at the end. Sending finished samples of what I hoped would be the finished product was still not sufficient. I knew trouble was brewing when he started chatting about the pom poms and basing and had only taken possession of the figures for a couple of weeks. Many figures, in greatcoats, were returned with collars and cuffs painted so some work had to be undone. Some professional painters will do a decent job and some will not. I think I was just unlucky.
