Here is the first picture of the progress:
Last night I painted the shoes and puttees or riding boots on 22 infantry, 2 mounted officers, 3 foot officers, and 2 3-man heavy machine gun teams. They'll get their pants tonight.
These are Battle Honours figures from Old Glory 15s/19th Century Miniatures ( link ) here in the US. Some of the figures sculpting is a little crude but they look very nice when painted, plus the price and shipping was very reasonable. They are glued to roofing nails that have large flat heads and held in a block of Styrofoam. The nails give me a good purchase and I can angle them just about anyway I need to paint the various bits.
