It took me nearly 6 months of time, an uncounted number of painting hours and lots of nerves and volition to stay only on this project, not getting distracted.
Not to mention those awful evenings when I painted muskets or shakos all night long.

|Well - here's the gun...|
In fact, I'm really glad with the results. It required a lot of patience and research to complete this 'army' and I'd like to say a lot of thanks to Alfons Cánovas and his great blog from which I got (or could further research) the required answers to the often contradictory uniform descriptions for the army of the Kingdom of Westphalia. In fact, I got several different descriptions for guard uniforms alone. So in fact, it's very hard to figure out which source is right about which details.

Sorry for not posting anything in the last weeks, but what should I have posted? Pictures of Westphalians in all stages of completion... *yawn*
Well. Time for other projects now. Btw - do you remember this guy?
